The prominent release of the week (Thursday for a change!) is going to be QUEEN fame director Vikas Bahl's Pankaj, Shahid and Alia starrer, SHAANDAR. Given the popular soundtrack and the Durga Puja holiday, the film is expected to embark on a good to decent start. In fact SHAANDAR will have the benefit of a 4-day weekend.
SHAANDAR AND PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA 2
The new release of last Friday, Luv Ranjan's Kartik Aryan, Nusrat Bharucha, Sunny Nijjar Singh and Sonalii Sehgall starrer, PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA 2, saw quite a good start and maintained very well, netting nearly 22 crore during the opening week from India. Given the Monday onwards trend, PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA 2 is on way to be at least a hit, more so due to the very reasonable 15 crore cost. PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA 2 has done decently (given the cost and cast) in the overseas (barring UK) grossing £15,000 from UK and $110,000 from the US during the opening weekend (18-20 October).
