Mixed start for RAJA NATWARLAL Emraan, MARDAANI Rani surprises!

The major release of the week, Kunal Deshmukh’s Emraan Hashmi starrer, RAJA NATWARLAL, could not emulate the team’s previous successes, quite on expected lines. RAJA NATWARLAL fared best in Mumbai-Maharashtra and Gujarat, due to the Ganesh Chaturthi holiday. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about its performance in the remaining parts of India, though the single screens did show a marked improvement during the latter shows.
RAJA NATWARLAL and MARDAANI
Meanwhile, Yash Raj Films’ Rani Mukerji starrer MARDAANI (which started on a dull note), improved over the weekend and maintained surprisingly well during the weekdays. The film ended the opening week netting a creditable 25 crore (to be validated). The tax--free status granted by many states is sure to ensure a successful outing for the Pradeep Sarkar directed MARDAANI.
Concluding with Rohit Shetty’s Ajay Devgn starrer, super hit SINGHAM RETURNS, the film crashed in the second week, after a bumper opening week of 112 crore. Adding another 23 crore, SINGHAM RETURNS has netted 135 crore in two weeks from India and is team Rohit- Ajay’s biggest hit and grosser by a long shot.
