Mumbai: Clearly, unadulterated masala is the talk of the day, and Akshay ‘Rowdy’ Kumar has no reason to be ‘angry’. His re-emergence as an action hero (read: superhero) is writ large all over the Box Office. After ‘Agneepath’ and ‘Bodyguard’, ‘Rowdy Rathore’ has nestled itself comfortably in the third position in the list of the highest openers ever.

Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, the film has been instrumental in proving beyond doubt that as far as the audience is concerned – as long as there is masala – nothing else matters. The film has garnered Rs. 15.10 crores on its opening day itself, and has resulted in an avalanche of good wishes and congratulatory messages for Akshay Kumar from all across the country and abroad. Here’s a look at a few tweets from Bollywood:

Shirish Kunder: “The #JOKER team congratulates @akshaykumar @sonakshisinha & the team of Rowdy Rathore on its super success.”
