The immensely hyped actioner Dhaakad starring Kangana Ranaut was released last week. However, despite the promotions and of course the insane amount of action, the film has massively under performed at the box office. After collecting just Rs. 0.50 cr. on opening day, the business of the film continued to remain low over its opening weekend with just Rs. 1.55 cr. coming in.
When compared to Kangana Ranaut’s previous releases Dhaakad ranks as her third lowest opening weekend grosser, managing to surpass the collections of her previous releases like Thalaivii, which collected Rs. 1.07 cr, and Miley Naa Miley Hum, which had collected Rs. 0.46 cr. If that wasn’t all, look at Kangana Ranaut’s release list in the recent past, with Dhaakad underperforming, the actress now has two back-to-back disasters at the box office in the form of Dhaakad and Thalaivi.
In fact, Kangana Ranaut’s recent releases like Judgementall Hai Kya managed to collect Rs. 33.11 cr. during its run, while her other releases Panga and Thalaivii managed Rs. 28.92 cr. and Rs. 1.46 cr. respectively. Looking a little further back, what stands out is the fact that Kangana Ranaut’s last hit was the 2015 release Tanu Weds Manu Returns which managed to draw in Rs. 150.8 cr. at the box office. Since then, Kangana has had eight flops, which also include I Love NY, Katti Batti, Rangoon, and Simran in addition to the previous four films. The only exception during this time being the film Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi that had collected Rs. 92.19 cr. and turned out to be an average fare.
