But the Milap Zaveri-directed film has registered a "decent" total on Day 4 - Rs 7.25 crore - and the film's total collection now stands at Rs 40.75 crore, the report added. She plays Akshay Kumar's wife in "Gold", a sports drama which revolves around hockey. The Milap Zaveri-directed film showed a drop in its collection on second day after "surprising" opening day collections.

While Gold has collected about Rs 26 crore at the domestic box office with 3,050 screens, Satyameva Jayate has managed Rs 16-17 crore with 2,500 screens.

According to Box Office India, while most circuits reported equally healthy numbers for both films, Gold took the lead in circuits like Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, East Punjab and Mumbai thanks to Kumar's massy fan following. After Gold, the action drama has also crossed the Rs 50 crore mark at the domestic market on Sunday.

It released with John Abraham's "Satyameva Jayate" and the movie is one of the biggest releases of the month which is set to have a free run considering it has little to no competition from "Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi", "Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se" and "Stree" which will hit the theatres in the coming weeks.

John Abraham's latest offering Satyameva Jayate clashed with Akshay Kumar's Gold at the box office this Independence Day. Satyameva Jayate is on the fifth while Gold got the third biggest opening.

Taran Adarsh feels that there might be a record-in-the-making for both the movies, courtesy a five day extended weekend.
