The inevitable has happened and yet again the adage ‘content is king’ proves correct, in case of the three releases of last Friday, Irrfan Khan’s road trip movie KARWAAN, the hard hitting Anubhav Sinha directed Rishi-Taapsee starrer MULK and T-Series’ Anil, Aishwarya and Rajkummar Rao starrer triumph of the underdog venture FANNEY KHAN.
Though the initial round (read as first day) belonged to FANNEY KHAN followed by KAARWAN and MULK, by the weekend the trend had started reversing. At the end of the opening weekend FANNEY KHAN and MULK had netted 7 crore, KAARWAN was quite ahead at 7.80 crore, all totals to be validated.
However, as the weekdays commenced MULK turned out to be the front runner followed by KAARWAN with FANNEY KHAN lagging behind. Interestingly Tuesday saw both MULK and KAARWAN improving upon their Monday performance, though unfortunately the same did not happen for FANNEY KHAN. The rough estimates after adding the Tuesday numbers are KAARWAN at 10 crore, MULK netting 9.50 crore and FANNEY KHAN at 8.50 crore.
As things stand, the winner at the end of the run is likely to be MULK followed by KAARWAN with FANNEY KHAN facing rough weather!
