"Queen" is ruling the box office world with its fantastic performance, while other films including "Bewakoofiyaan", "Total Siyapaa" and "Gulaab Gang" have average performances.
Vikas Bahl's directorial film "Queen" had a mediocre start in international arena, but in second week the film picked up its pace and race ahead of other release.
Yash Raj production "Bewakoofiyaan" was supposed to dominate the overseas market since it is a new release with overseas friendly genre (romantic comedy) and produced under big banner of YRF, but unfortunately the film failed to make an impact.
Like Indian markets "Queen" is now dominating overseas market too.
The women oriented film starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkumar Rao in the lead role is doing better than first week at domestic as well as overseas market.
In India, the second week four day total is higher than first week total.
The four days first week total of the film is ₹12.05 crore, while the second week is ₹13.15 crore. Meanwhile, the 11 days domestic total of the film stands at ₹32 crore nett.

Ayushmann Khurrana, Sonam Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor starrer "Bewakoofiyaan" is facing tough competition from previous week release "Queen" in India and internationally.
