'2 States' continues to be favourite of audiences
Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt-starrer "2 States" is in its second week and it has raked in about Rs.70 crore at the domestic box office. Close on its heels is "Revolver Rani", which came out this weekend.
"Samrat & Co." and Subhash Ghai's "Kaanchi" haven't struck the right chord yet.
According to sources, "2 States", which released April 18, has earned Rs.69.83 crore net in the country.
Based on a bestseller by author Chetan Bhagat, it is directed by first-timer Abhishek Varman.
"'2 States' is still leading. Among the new releases, 'Revolver Rani' is doing the best. It has minted approximately Rs.3.25 crore in two days. 'Kaanchi' has collected about Rs.1.25 crore and 'Samrat & Co.' must have earned not more than Rs.50 lakh," Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told IANS.
Though Kangana Ranaut-starrer "Revolver Rani" has done relatively better than the other two films that released April 25, the movie's performance at the box-office is not as good as her previous film "Queen".
"The buzz wasn't that great. Even the songs are not good and promotions didn't create much hype," said Thadani.
Tagged as a "complete B-grade entertainment" by its producer Tigmanshu Dhulia, the film presents Kangana shooting guns and acting more like a male hero.
While "Samrat & Co." shows Rajeev Khandelwal as an investigator in the detective movie, women empowerment-based "Kaanchi" is Ghai's directorial after six years.
