Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt-starrer 2 States is in its second week and 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,” informed Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines.
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.
