Batti Gul Meter Chalu couldn’t really take any strides at the Box Office as the film just couldn’t gain much of a momentum right through the weekend. If Friday was low, Saturday and Sunday weren’t high either, as a result of which the overall weekend stood at just Rs. 23.26 crore. Given the fact that there hasn’t been much of a pace gathered so far, it is unlikely that the situation would change much during the weekdays. One can expect the numbers to dip from Monday onwards and while Rs. 30 crore would be crossed soon enough, one waits to see how much time does the Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer need to touch the Rs. 35 crore mark.
On the other hand Stree is pacing ahead, and how. The film brought in Rs. 2.86 crore more and with that the total has touched Rs. 119.09 crore. The film is running on limited number of shows and enjoying houseful status in various properties. Blockbuster.
Manmarziyaan was the third choice of the audience and after the second weekend the collections stand at Rs. 24.63 crore. The film’s best chance is to come close to the Rs. 30 crore milestone in its lifetime but that’s about it. Soon enough the film would be available on satellite and digital medium.
Ditto for Manto which collected under Rs. 2 crore over the weekend. Numbers are on the same lines as last week’s Mitron though one expects an even lesser Week One numbers. The Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer may close its first week around the Rs. 3 crore mark and that would be it for the Nandita Das film.
