Advtg.

This Friday`s new release, the Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon and Sandeepa Dhar starrer, HEROPANTI, is expected to embark on an impressive start. In fact, chances are that Tiger will be the next big thing to hit Bollywood. Having said that, HEROPANTI will have to contend with mega star Rajnikanth`s KOCHADAIIYAAN (2D & 3D animation), which releases on the same date.

The prominent release of the week, Himesh-Yo Yo's, THE XPOSE, was hit hard (on the opening day) by Hollywood's GODZILLA and the election results. While the best opening was for GODZILLA, a major chunk of the audience stayed back to watch the live election results. 

But THE XPOSE saw a pick up during the latter shows of the first day itself and ended the first weekend netting 8.50 crore (to be validated). What augurs well for THE XPOSE is the reasonable 15 crore all involved cost.
