Despite the fact that ‘Sooryavanshi’ was recently released on Netflix, its box office receipts continue to soar. Since its release, the film has grossed 193.60 crores.
Sooryavanshi was one of the first few Bollywood films to receive a theatrical release in the country following the relaxation of COVID restrictions. The film starred Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Ajay Devgn, and Ranveer Singh and immediately became a box office success. The film was recently released on Netflix’s online streaming service, but has continued to perform exceptionally well at the box office.
Despite its OTT release, Sooryavanshi’s box office earnings continue to grow.
The Rohit Shetty-directed film premiered on Netflix at the start of the month. One would assume that this would result in a decline in the films’ ever-increasing box office earnings, but they have only been creeping closer to joining the 200-crore club. According to Taran Adarsh’s tweet, the film grossed 36 lakhs on Friday, 66 lakhs on Saturday, and a whopping 99 lakhs on Sunday. Monday’s box office collection was 24 lakhs, bringing the film’s total box office collection to a whopping 193.60 crores, a figure that is only increasing.
The film previously surpassed the 100 crore mark at the box office in just five days of its release. It surpassed the 150 crore mark within ten days of its release on the big screen, in its second week. Sooryavanshi became the first film in the last two years to cross the $100 million mark, and several actors from the film industry congratulated Akshay Kumar and his team on the film’s success.

It was also the most-watched video on the video streaming platform 24 hours after its debut. The song was released on November 6th and has received over 117 million views on YouTube. Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik sang Tip Tip Barsa Paani, which was adapted from Kumar’s role opposite Raveena Tandon in the film Mohra. After the film’s release, other songs from the film, such as Na Jaa and Mere Yaara, became hit singles.
