Kangana Ranaut should heave a sigh of relief as Manikarnika showed a humongous growth on the second day at the box office after a decent start and became the only women-oriented film to have a highest day collection beating Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika received positive to decent reviews from both paying audience and the critics alike. Made at the budget of Rs 125 crores (estimated), Manikarnika – The Queen Of Jhansi opened to a decent start with Rs 8.75 crores across India.
As per early estimates, the collections on the second day showed a solid growth of almost 130-140 % across India owing to the Republic Day holiday as compared to the first day. The collections were very good in the morning shows and picked up in the evening and night shows. As per early early estimates, the film has collected a good Rs 18-19 crores on its second day at the box office. The collections were simply superb as it broke record of Anand L Rai directed Tanu Weds Manu Returns (Rs 15.85 crores) to become the highest day earner for a women-oriented film. With the two days total, Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi has collected a very good Rs 26.75-27.75 crores at the box office.
The collections on Sunday should be good as the earnings got boosted on Saturday. Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi has been released in 3700 screens worldwide (India: 3000 screens, Overseas: 700 screens) and also stars Danny Denzongpa, Jishu Sengupta, Ankita Lokhande and Misti Mukherjee in key roles.
