OOPS! Did Twinkle Khanna Just Mock Salman Khan's Tubelight & Shah Rukh Khan's Jab Harry Met Sejal?

Akshay Kumar is on a roll with his latest release Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and wife Twinkle Khanna seems to be very happy with husband’s success.

If early estimates are to be believed, the film has earned Rs 21.50 crore (approx) on its third day, taking the opening weekend collection to Rs 51.70 cr (approx) (*official numbers are awaited*)

And with that good news, Twinkle Khanna took to her Twitter saying, "So even the box-office needed this Toilet eventually to break free from its constipation-#ToiletEkPremKath Hit Hit Hooray!"

Is Twinkle taking a dig at Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan's recent failures at ticket windows by comparing their film’s run at the box-office to ‘constipation’? As you know, the last two big films released in the last quarter are Salman’s Tubelight and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal. Both bombed at the box-office.

Earlier this year, Akshay Kumar had delivered Jolly LLB 2. Both his films made it to the list of highest openers so far this year. Jolly LLB 2 was the fifth highest opener and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has already become the sixth highest opener this year.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh also tweeted yesterday saying, “#ToiletEkPremKatha has pumped oxygen in the lungs of an ailing film industry… The dry spell at the BO ends finally! #TEPK."

Being a long weekend (Today-Janmashthami & Tomorrow-Independence Day), the film is expected to only grow in the coming days.

Furthermore, SpotboyE.com broke the news that Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has pocketed a superb deal of Rs 53 crore (all India distribution rights). The film has been sold to Viacom for the said amount.

This figure of Rs 53 crore is an all-time high for Akshay Kumar. The superstar’s Rustom was sold for Rs 42 crore.

Coming back to Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and its success, Akshay Kumar proves it yet again why he is the most dependable star in Bollywood.
