Weaving its charms on the ticket windows even on sultry weekdays, before it faces competition from Hollywood’s Lion King this Friday, Hrithik Roshan‘s Super 30 collected a total of Rs 70.23 crore on day six. The movie even won accolades from the Vice President of India, M. Venkaiah Naidu and his entire family after a special screening was held for them by director Vikas Bahl.

Actors Mrunal Thakur and Hrithik Roshan’s latest on-screen offering Super 30 emerged as the eighth highest-grossing film for Hrithik after Dhoom 2 and Krrish. The place was earlier held by Ashutosh Gowariker’s Jodhaa Akbar that featured Aishwarya Rai Bachchan opposite Hrithik. The film had collected Rs 62.80 in its lifetime and Super 30 crossed this benchmark to appear as the eighth biggest-grosser of the actor’s career.
The Vikas Bahl-directorial has shown a decent trend in the weekdays. Super 30 has received mixed reviews from the critics while there’s good word-of-mouth on social media about the film that also resulted in an increase in the collection on Saturday. The film is based on mathematician Anand Kumar who trained 30 local students to crack IIT-JEE, the entrance examination for the Indian Institute of Technology.
