As latest allocation of screens going on for Friday that is tomorrow it is three way battle at box office. Finding Fanny (starring Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor) has managed decent screening in multiplexes and is leading the fight. Whereas Creature (3D) has managed decent screening is leading ahead of Finding Fanny in single screens. Interestingly last week release Mary Kom (starring Priyanka Chopra) gets another good shot at ticket counters as film has managed to retain decent screening which is on par with new releases. Mary Kom rocking business on first weekend and steady performance on weekdays has kept confidence in exhibitors and don't be surprise if film again gives tough fight to new releases this week also.
Still screen allocation for both the new releases Finding Fanny and Creature is going on and also for Mary Kom second week. Actual allocation will be locked by tomorrow Morning. But looking at the trend it will be 3 way battle. Mary Kom pushing Finding Fanny for screens in Multiplexes and doing the same with Creature in single screens. Looks like Finding Fanny might come ahead in multiplexes and Creature in single screens. Whereas Mary Kom is certain to get second preference be it plexes or single screens.
Overall screening of Finding Fanny and Mary Kom should be in same range followed by Creature 3D. There is realistic chance that Mary Kom could eventually have the highest screening among three films mentioned and that is absolutely fantastic news for the film.

Finding Fanny and Creature 3D are of different genre and hence there should not be possibility of clashes among audiences. But biggest gainer looks like Mary Kom which has at least got good enough screening again and has potential to do well again at box office. Let's wait and watch the fun now.
