Bollywood Box Office Update
BO update: Revolver Rani takes the lead
After last week's release 2 STATES took the box office by storm, this week's three releases REVOLVER RANI, KAANCHI and SAMRAT & CO. have got off on a slow start. Though reviews for the Kangna Ranut starrer REVOLVER RANI have been good, the audience turnout has been relatively low. While for the other two films, below average reviews and low key buzz surrounding the films have severely affected collections.
One reason for REVOLVER RANI faring better than the other releases could be the recent success of the film's lead actress Kangna had with QUEEN. Apart from this, reports suggest that though the film has started off slow, it will be much like QUEEN, with business picking up over the weekend. On the other hand, last week's release 2 STATES featuring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt has continued its run at the box office. While the film has been relegated to the second choice for cinegoers, it continues to enjoy a higher share of audiences as compared to KAANCHI and SAMRAT & CO.
Overall good word of mouth will play a very crucial role for all three films; however, KAANCHI and SAMRAT & CO. will have to battle it out for the third spot, considering that the first two have been occupied by REVOLVER RANI and 2 STATES.
