Vikas Bahl's directorial film "Queen" is changing the box office trend with its power pack performance. The women oriented film starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkumar Rao in lead has seen extraordinary jump in its collection in second week compared to first.
On Monday, the film benefited due to Holi holiday across the country. The second Monday earning was 30 to 40 percent higher than second Friday. However, on second Tuesday the film witnessed a major fall.
The low budget film has raked in a huge amount only from domestic box office run. In 12 days, the film managed to take its overall domestic collection to ₹36 crore.
After the first week collections came out, it was expected that the film will take its lifetime collection to ₹40 crore. But looking at the second week's trend, it appears that the film will make more than ₹45 crore.
"#Queen [Week 2 - revised] Fri 2.40 cr, Sat 4.20 cr, Sun 4.80 cr, Mon 3.25 cr, Tue 1.85 cr. Grand total: ₹ 36 cr nett. India biz," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The film remained unaffected with the release of "Bewakoofiyaan" in Indian markets.
Meanwhile, the romantic comedy film "Bewakoofiyaan" is going steady at the box office after a slow start. The film held up well on Monday due to holiday across the country and on Tuesday also it performed well.
Ayushmann Khurrana, Sonam Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor's film has raked in total amount of ₹10.81 crore. The five days total is pretty low due to low opening weekend. .
"#Bewakoofiyaan Fri 2.23 cr, Sat 2.51 cr, Sun 2.57 cr, Mon 2.06 cr, Tue 1.44 cr. Total: ₹ 10.81 cr nett. India biz," Adarsh tweeted.
In its first week, "Bewakoofiyaan" was affected due to "Queen" and in second week the Yash Raj production is expected to face competition from Sunny Leone's horror thriller "Ragini MMS 2".
