The coming Friday will see the release of Raveena Tandon's Ashtar Sayed directed MAATR (subject to censor clearance), Sonakshi Sinha venture NOOR and Binod Singh's AJAB SINGH KI GHAZAB KAHANI. Though none of the mentioned films are going to set the box-office on fire but the front runner is likely to be NOOR with MAATR in hot pursuit.
Last week's prominent release, Mukesh Bhatt's Vidya Balan starrer BEGUM JAAN, could muster around 12 crore (to be validated) during the opening weekend. Despite a below 20 crore cost and reasonable non-theatricals, the film will have to work hard for a plus or recovery status.
Checking out Vin Diesel's FAST & FURIOUS 8 (banking on the popularity of the franchise), the film managed a good extended (5-day) weekend netting nearly 50 crore from India and has bright chances of ending up as a hit. Having said that, it could not emulate the success of its predecessor!
