The film, which hit the theatres on Independence Day, has earned a whopping Rs. 100.45 crore. Film critic Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to make the announcement, writing, "#Gold crosses Rs. 100 cr mark on Day 13... [Week 2] Fri 1.85 cr, Sat 3.10 cr, Sun 4.75 cr, Mon 1.45 cr. Total: Rs. 100.45 cr. India biz... Akshay Kumar's ninth film in Rs. 100 cr Club."

The superstar was on a run on consecutive 100-crore successes in 2016 and 2017, which included ‘Airlift’, ‘Housefull 3', ‘Rustom’, ‘Jolly LLB 2’ and ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’.

However, that run came to an end earlier this year with ‘Pad Man’, which was successful but didn’t reach the three-figure mark. And ‘Gold’ has now ensured he is back to where he belongs.
