One of this weekend’s release ‘Manikarnika – The Queen Of Jhansi’ has opened up with decent figures in India, according to Box Office India.
The patriotic drama starring Kangna Ranaut, who plays Rani Lakshmi Bai, opened up with business around 15-20% in morning trading at the ticket window. The film was expected to have a bigger opening in UP, MP and Rajasthan but it seems somehow lower than forecast.
‘Manikarnika’ will certainly have an advantage over its rivals, with encouraging reviews and the India Republic Day weekend.
The second release this weekend is ‘Thackeray’, which had a relatively slow start with around 10% business. As expected, it did better in Maharashtra, where numbers will be certainly be closely watched.
