The coming Friday will witness the release of one of the most awaited films of the first half of 2015, Aanand L Rai’s TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS, the follow up to the highly successful and almost iconic TANU WEDS MANU. Starring R. Madhavan, Kangana Ranaut and Deebak Dobriyal, the film is expected to rock the box-office, both in India and abroad.

Last Friday’s major release, Anurag Kashyap’s Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar venture BOMBAY VELVET, failed to appeal to the masses or the classes. Not only that, Kashyap’s hardcore fans too ditched the movie as they felt that he had compromised by going mainstream. As a result BOMBAY VELVET saw a dismal first weekend , netting 16-17 crore and will face monumental losses. The film has also failed to enthuse the audience in the overseas grossing £95,000 from UK and $300,000 from the US, during the opening weekend (15-15 May).

Last week’s Shoojit Sircar directed Amitabh Bachchan, Irrfan Khan, Deepika Padukone and Jisshu Sengupta starrer, PIKU, capitalised on a superb weekend, maintaining the tempo during the weekdays as well.
