Just as we had stated in our box-office report, the new releases of the week, the prominent one being Anupam Kher's RANCHI DIARIES and others, are non-starters, as the audience awaits the Diwali bonanza(s), Ajay Devgn's GOLMAAL AGAIN and the Aamir Khan offering SECRET SUPERSTAR. In fact the best performance comes from Hollywood's VICTORIA & ABDUL, featuring our very own Ali Fazal.
Meanwhile, last week's Raja Krishna Menon's (AIRLIFT director) Saif Ali Khan starrer, CHEF is a washout, barely managing 5-6 crore during the opening week from India.
Concluding with the David Dhawan directed Varun Dhawan starrer, JUDWAA 2, the film added another 25.50 crore during the second outing, thanks to quite a steady run, thus netting 123 crore (to be validated) in two weeks from India, and is a super hit.
Having said that, the point of interest is whether or not JUDWAA 2 will manage to upstage the top Hindi grossers of 2017, by slayng RAEES Shah Rukh Khan and cleaning up Akshay Kumar' TOILET EK PREM KATHA, after having already fused Salman Khan's TUBELIGHT!
