Simran Or Lucknow Central? Guess Which Film Won The Box Office Battle!
The close box office battle that was expected to take place at the ticket counters this week shaped exactly the way we had thought. While both Simran and Lucknow Central submitted similar kind of figures, the biggest takeaway was limited number of footfalls through the weekend.
The Kangana Ranaut starrer did stay in the lead but with a mixed word of mouth, it was 5 crores short. Given a significant pre-release buzz and dependency on Kangana in the lead, the film opened well with 2.77 crores on Friday and got the number up at 4.12 crores on Sunday. The Hansal Mehta film is currently at 10.65 crores.
Both these movies would now need to sustain well on the weekdays to enter the safe zone. Given the kind of reactions both Simran and Lucknow Central have garnered, it’s not going to be easy. With a number of fresh releases slated for this Friday, both movies have a restricted window of opportunity.
On the other hand, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan continued to do well and has touched the 40 crore mark at the box office.
