This week’s premier release, Excel Entertainment’s Zoya Akhtar directed Ranveer-Alia starrer, GULLY BOY, defied predictions and almost touched the opening day of the super star’s SIMMBA netting 20 crore. Though the second day (Friday) has seen a 14-15 crore haul with an expected fall (though not alarming), still the way the film is progressing, the extended 4-day opening weekend itself may take the film into the success zone and result in another triumph for Ranveer Singh!
Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut’s MANIKARNIKA-THE QUEEN OF JHANSI saw another rewarding week with a 10 crore haul which means that the film has netted almost 90 crore (to be validated) in three weeks from India. The film will end up as an above average fare and so kudos to the valiant Rani of Jhansi and queen Kangana! The film has also impressed in the overseas zipping past the $4m mark.
