This Friday will see three diverse releases – Jyotin Geols' HUM HAI RAAHI CAR KE, Preity Zinta's debut home production venture, ISHKQ IN PARIS and Rajiv S. Ruia's ZINDAGI 50-50. While the Sanjay Dutt, Juhi Chawla, Adah Sharma and Dev Geol starrer, the zany comic caper HUM HAIN RAAHI CAR KE is expected to appeal to the DHAMAAL series fans, the Prem Soni directed romantic drama, ISHKQ IN PARIS is aimed at high end multiplexes. The Veena Malik starrer ZINDAGI 50:50 is obviously aimed at the masses and the front benchers.

Both the major releases of last Friday, Yash Raj Films' Arjun Kapoor starrer AURANGZEB and the Amit Kasaria directed I DON'T LUV U have disappointed. While AURANGZEB could not improve upon its below par 12-13 crore (opening weekend) as the collections continued to plummet further during the weekdays, I DON'T LUV U fared worse with rock bottom collections. AURANGZEB has also disappointed in the overseas grossing ?28,000 from UK and $ 91,000 from the US during the opening weekend (17-19 May).
