Mardaani is released today and able to get good screening of about 1600-1650 screens this week, despite a big release already running in Singham Returns. On the other hand Singham Returns has also managed to retain majority of its screening for second week. Film has just about 1500+ screens for 2nd week and that is more than enough to do good business at box office. Rest screening is shared between new releases Mad About Dance, Katiyabaaz, The Expendables and of course Entertainment. Still few screens are left for films like Kick which is into 5th week now.
Mardaani has registered weak start at box office. But today being normal working day real picture will be out when Evening and Night shows report will be out. Film tends to pick up well in that zone and specially through the weekend. Singham Returns is set to rule the box office again this weekend, although it will be great fight today between it and Mardaani. There is not much expectation from new releases like MAD and Katiyabaaz. Entertainment also has less scope now to recover as screening is much less again this week and may collect few crores in coming days. Kick may collect in lower end again, but it is already into 5th week and business will be in lower end now.
Screen Count -
Mardaani - 1600-1650
