Sabbir Khan directorial Munna Michael starring Tiger Shroff and Nawazuddin Siddiqui has an exceptionally low Monday and has not met expectations. While many people did see Munna Michael in theatres, considering the number of screens on which the dance action film was released, the numbers are still pretty lukewarm. And with the Monday figures dropping to Rs 3.25 crores, looks like Alankrita Shrivastava’s Lipstick Under My Burkha is finally conquering the forefront.
Munna Michael was released on a staggering 3000 screens. In comparison, Lipstick Under My Burkha, starring Ratna Pathak Shah and Konkona Sensharma, had been released on a mere 400 screens. But there is still a cause of hope for the filmmakers of Munna Michael. Releasing on Friday with Rs 6.65 crores, the film had shown a steady growth over the weekend but it saw a drastic fall as the week started. After the first day earnings of Rs 6.65 crores, the film’s earnings diminished a little on Saturday at Rs 6.32 crores. But it picked up again on Sunday and the theatres were packed and the film brought home Rs 8.70 crores. Lipstick Under My Burkha collected 1.28 crores on Monday which is fairly decent considering the film’s distribution and the fact that it is even more than its opening collection.
