Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga dropped on Monday. As mentioned earlier in this column, the film needed at least Rs. 2 crore on each of the weekdays to stand some sort of a chance. However the film brought in Rs. 1.50 crore and though this is still around the same lines, it is still low which means going would be tough from here on. The film has collected Rs. 13.33 crore so far and at best would have a first week of around Rs. 20 crore.
On the other hand Uri – The Surgical Strike is turning out to be the top performing film of the week. The film collected around Rs. 2.50 crore* more on its fourth Monday which is just superb. It has gathered Rs. 192.25 crore* which is just phenomenal. It also means that with some consistency, it could well get into the Rs. 200 Crore Club this week itself.
Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi is stable as well as it brought in Rs. 2. crore more on its second Monday. This is decent enough and now the total has reached Rs. 74.40 crore. While Rs. 90 crore lifetime is a given for the film, an open week ahead gives it a chance to a go a little higher too.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
