This Friday  major  releases, Bohra Bros. Pvt Ltd and Pen India Ltd’s Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna starrer THE ACCIDENTAL PRIME MINISTER  and Ronnie Screwvala’s URI,  could  not  really  scorch  the  box-office,  nor  were  they  expected  to!  Having  said  that it  was the  patriotic  URI  which  opened  quite  decently  at  around  25-30 percent   as  opposed  to  the  political  THE ACCIDENTAL PRIME MINISTER  which  saw  a  15-20 percent  start,  which  is  a  bit surprising  as  the  expectations  and  predictions  were  just the  opposite.  At an early estimate URI has netted 9 crore and THE ACCIDENTAL PRIME MINISTER managed just around 4 crore.

As  things  stand,  the Vicky  Kaushal starrer  URI  is  expected to  be  a  success (provided it sustains at the same level)  while  THE ACCIDENTAL PRIME MINISTER  may  struggle  to  make  a  mark,  based  on  the  audience  feedback for both the films.

Meanwhile,  after  a  stupendous  150  crore  week,  Dharma Productions, Reliance Entertainment and  Rohit Shetty Picturez’ Ranveer-Sara starrer, SIMMBA , saw  a prominent  but  expected  fall  during  the  second  outing  managing  a  61  crore  haul  thus  netting  a  humongous  211 crore  in  two  weeks  from  India.  Needless  to  add  that  the  Rohit  Shetty  directed  SIMMBA   is  already a blockbuster  (with  still a lot  of  fire  power left!). The icing  on  the  cake  is  that  SIMMBA  is  also  an  overseas  super hit, grossing  $11.50m in the overseas, at the end of the second week.
