Doykov (Producer) is no stranger to Bulgarian box-office hits: in 2010, he produced, Mission: London, which opened to 46,000 admissions, ending its run in Bulgarian cinemas with a record-breaking 376,000 tickets sold and becoming the biggest box office film in Bulgarian History out performing Star Wars. The Liberators has started well and looks to outperform Mission London.
