The coming Friday will once again witness multiple releases- Anushka Sharma’s NH 10, DHARAM SANKAT MEIN (still to be confirmed) and Adhyayan Suman’s LUCKNOWI ISHQ. While the front runner will obviously be NH10, the two week old DUM LAGA KE HAISHA will again prove to be a handful for the new releases.

All the new releases of last week, Lalit Modi’s DIRTY POLITICS, VRG Motion Pictures Pvt. Ltd’s BADMASHIYAAN- FUN NEVER ENDS and Ganesh Acharya’s HEY BRO, failed to make any headway, barring the Mallika Sherawat starrer DP. Coming to the numbers, DIRTY POLITICS managed 4.50-5.0 crore during the opening weekend and may just scrape through to safety. The remaining two releases, BADMASHIYAAN-FUN NEVER ENDS and HEY BRO, were well below the 1 crore mark and have more or less been rejected by the audience.
