Moving on, the Nikhil Advani directed Imran-Kangana starrer, KATTI BATTI, which started on an ordinary note on the first day, could not improve over the weekend netting around 17 crore. The weekdays trend too indicate that KATTI BATTI will end up as a losing proposition. KATTI BATTI is so-so in the overseas grossing £100,000 from UK and $240,000 from the US during the opening weekend (18-20 September).

The two other releases of the week, Zeishan Quadri’s MEERUTHIYA GANGSTERS and Baba Ram Rahim Insan’s MSG – 2: THE MESSENGER, have both failed to appeal to the audience.
