Akshay Kumar's Gold and John Abraham's Satyameva Jayate opened to an impressive combined total of Rs 45 crore (approximately) on Independence Day.

Milap Zaveri's anti-corruption action entertainer Satyameva Jayate debuted in second place at Rs 20.52 crore, making it the highest opening for an A rated action film.

Gold and Satyameva Jayate have recorded the third and fifth biggest opening day collections for Hindi films in 2018. While it is easy to comprehend the former's box office performance due to its crowd-pleasing nature, the latter's fabulous response comes as a surprise given its A-rating.

Satyameva Jayate producer Bhushan Kumar said in a statement, “It is a big day for the team of Satyameva Jayate. The film has opened to an extraordinaire number. Emmay and our association after Airlift gave us the confidence to make many more films with Nikkhil & team, SMJ has created history for our association. Milap has made a blockbuster and that's visible with the love and applause from the masses. These figures are the biggest of our joint association with Emmay and also a biggie for John and Manoj. We are extremely happy and thankful to the audiences, the actors and the entire SMJ team.”

In the film written and directed by Zaveri, John Abraham plays a vigilante in the film who fights against corruption and social injustice. Satyameva Jayate also features Manoj Bajpayee, Amruta Khanvilkar and Aisha Sharma in pivotal roles.

Meanwhile, Gold traces the "golden era" of Indian hockey through the journey of Akshay Kumar's Tapan Das, a young assistant manager in 1936, who dreamt of playing for an independent nation. The film also stars Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor, Sunny Kaushal, Vineet Kumar Singh and Mouni Roy.
