Released on around 3500 screens across the country, Akshay Kumar‘s Singh Is Bling has opened to a terrific response at the Box Office. The movie has become the highest opening day grosser for Akshay Kumar.

Since Singh Is Bling is a masala potboiler, it was pretty much expected that the movie would see a very good opening on single screens but what is making all the difference is the response that it is receiving at multiplexes.
