The probable business of Laxmii would have been around 110 crore nett if it was released on a non holiday. A Diwali release would actually mean the film doing well as it would have racked up big numbers in Gujarat which is super strong on Diwali with extended holidays and a circuit where these type of films have a bigger following. A Diwali release would have meant Mumbai circuit doing around 55-60 crore nett and all India going to around 140 crore nett. This is taking ticket rates at the level of February.The circuits which have business from Gujarat and Maharashtra would have outperformed and three circuits fall into this category Mumbai, CP Berar and Nizam. The outperformance here would not only be because of Diwali but because these type of films score more in Maharashtra and Gujarat. The Mumbai circuit ratio was sure to be above 40% while the poor performqnce would have come in East Punjab and Mysore. Delhi / UP would also have struggled though the the 3-4 days holiday in UP post Diwali would have meant a respectable number for the Delhi / UP circuit. The probable circuit numbers of the film on Diwali would probably have been as follows.
In terms of recent Akshay Kumar starrers it would have fared better than the likes of Pad Man and Gold and this would have been even without a Diwali release. It would have probably be the sixth highest grosser Akshay Kumar assuming a normal situation Diwlai release. This is how it would have fitted with the other Akshay Kumar films in recent times.
