The much awaited R Madhavan, Kangana Ranaut, Jimmy Shergill, Deepak Dobriyal & Swara Bhaskar starrer, TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS, the follow up to the highly successful TANU WEDS MANU, started on an impressive note. The opening can be termed as great in Delhi-NCR, East Punjab and good at other places, except for some stations of South and East India. The icing on the cake was a further pick up during the latter shows, which consolidated the fact that TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS is a sureshot hit, how big or small time will tell!

Meanwhile, after a decent start (at high end metro multiplexes), Anurag Kashyap’s Ranbir-Anushka starrer, BOMBAY VELVET, crashed badly, second day onwards, ending the first week with a dismal 24 crore (to be validated). The film turns out to be the second disaster of Ranbir Kapoor’s career after Abhinav Kashyap’s , BESHARAM.
Concluding with the Amitabh, Irrfan and Deepika starrer, PIKU, the film saw a rock steady second week of around 22 crore, thus netting well over 62 crore (to be validated) in two weeks from India, and resulting into another hit in the illustrious career of the ageless mega star, Amitabh Bachchan.
