Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Simran’ opened at the box office with a total of Rs 2.77 crore leaving movie buffs rather disappointed. But it looks like some solid word of mouth has worked wonders for the film on its second day. It has collected Rs 3.76 crore on Saturday, making its total Rs 6.53 crore.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Simran witnessed 35.74% growth on Day 2… Fri 2.77 cr, Sat 3.76 cr. Total: ₹ 6.53 cr. India biz.”

Critics may not warmed up to ‘Simran’ but Kangana has definitely managed to shine like a star. If you were under the impression that Bollywood is a male-dominated industry, superstar Kangana is here to prove you wrong. ‘Simran’ had released alongside Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Lucknow Central’. On the first day, ‘Lucknow Central’ was behind ‘Simran’ in terms of earnings. While the former earned Rs 2.04 crore, the latter made Rs 2.77 crore.

Simran is loosely based on the real-life story of Sandeep Kaur, an NRI who was convicted of robbery, and delves deeper into the psyche of a woman who finds solace in thieving. What could lead someone to find happiness in something that is unethical or immoral? Why would you want to watch this at all? The reason is simple. Some of the best characters in the world of cinema are born when actors have played grey shades. Be it The Godfather, or more recently Leonardo Di Caprio’s The Wolf Of Wall Street. The depth of each of the characters in these films was one of the main reasons why they attained the cult status.

In her review of the Kangana Ranaut starrer, Indian Express film critic Subhra Gupta said, “First things first. If anyone had any doubt that an Indian leading lady cannot carry a full-fledged film, they can banish that thought at once. In Simran, Kangana Ranaut drives from the front seat, keeping her feet firmly on the accelerator, and everyone else in the cast follows.”

    Really Kangna is a self made woman, she is continuously covering her journey with dire determination breaking all the pillars of heredity.Her journey from queen to kusum(datto) and now to simran is artistic .She is setting examples for the ladies in film industry she is a real actor.

      She can pull crowds for sure! The movie theaters in most big cities are packed in post afternoon shows. It needs to be called out that Kangana works in a lop-sided ecosystem. For instance, Simran was not listed as a new release in many north indian leading papers. The other movie was glorified. Why? Assorted platforms are writing nasty out of context stories for her all day today. Reviewers are changing the headlines of their review to make a bad impression (shubra gupta changed her review le 3 times since yesterday!). Hrithik's dated PR is writing petty tweets to counter the praise on social media. Stories to instigate people against Kanagna are being planted by haters. Any self-made successful actor has to deal with constant bias and misogyny. Kangana has still pulled crowds in the past and continues even today. What you cant take from her is that she raises the bar of performance to world-class levels. Her contemporaries cannot match that.

        The most satisfying thing you wrote in the article is Superstar Kangna... She certainly deserve this le now. It's good that you haven't patronize other born star kids and compared her with them
