Akshay Kumar can breath a sigh of relief. After a spate of over publicised disasters (��Action Replayy�۪ (2010), ��Tees Maar Khan�۪ (2010), ��Patiala House�۪ (2011),�� ��Thank You�۪ (2011), and ��Desi Boyz�۪ (2011)), his latest laugh out loud comedy, ‘Housefull 2’ seems to be rocking at the Indian Box Office.

According to Box Office India, the critically panned film directed by Sajid Khan and co-starring a host of big names (Asin Thottumkal, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez, Ritesh Deshmukh, Zarine Khan, Shreyas Talpade, Shazahn Padamsee, Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Randhir Kapoor, Boman Irani with Chunky Pandey and Ranjeet in cameos), collected a whopping Rs 19.5 crores (approximately �240,000) in its second weekend. This puts the films collections behind only ��3 Idiots�۪ (2009) and ��Dabangg�۪ (2010).

With no major opposition until ��Tezz�۪ (Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Zayed Khan) which releases on 27th April, ��Housefull 2�۪ is expected to continue minting money for the next fortnight.

Kumar�۪s next release is Prabhudeva�۪s ��Rowdy Rathore�۪. The action-comedy which co-stars Sonakshi Sinha��is expected to release��in June.
