Kangana Ranaut new film ‘Simran’, may not be getting the best of reviews and ratings but audiences are simply loving the flawed Kangana. Until the opening weekend, the film has accumulated Rs 10.65 crore. The film which faced an opening of Rs 2.77 crore performed better on Saturday when it witnessed an upward trend garnering a total amount of Rs. 6.53 crore. On Sunday the film earned Rs 4.12 crore. “#Simran needs to maintain on weekdays for a respectable total… Fri 2.77 cr, Sat 3.76 cr, Sun 4.12 cr. Total: ₹ 10.65 cr. India biz.” Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter.

‘Simran’ had released alongside Farhan Akhtar starrer film ‘Lucknow Central’. Kangana Ranaut’s film is far ahead in the race and the box office performance seems to be on the right track. Kangana Ranaut had been in news ever since she spoke about her affair with Hrithik Roshan again on the television show, ‘Aap Ki Adalat’. She had given candid replies to all the questions that were asked.

She even opened up about her brutal days in the industry. Since then she had been the most talked about woman in B-town. All this had given a lot of attention to her upcoming film. Prior to that, she had embroiled herself in another controversy when she called Karan Johar the ‘movie mafia’, ‘the flag bearer of nepotism’ on the chat show, ‘Koffee With Karan’. The rest is history.

‘Simran’ has been directed by Hansal Mehta. Here Kangana plays a Gujarati girl named Praful Patel. ‘Simran’ marked Kangana Ranaut’s second release after ‘Rangoon’ this year. While Rangoon may have found itself in the list of Bollywood’s biggest flops, Simran may not share the same fate.

“This is really the strength of Simran: Ranaut’s willingness to be not-nice. She’s not going to play nice to get her way. She is downright dislikeable, in fact, and that makes her relatable. It’s also the creation of a character who has an inner secret life which is so much at variance with what Patel is on top. The layers instantly give the film heft,” film critic Shubhra Gupta wrote in her review.

    KR's fans are so deluded. It's a massive flop! Stop trying to make it better than it is. I bet her small fan base are watching the movie over and over again. People are mentioning national awards and comparing her the Amitabh?? Rediculous, highly offensive and foolish of her fans. Sounds desperate just like KR!

      Prepare you national award speech Kangana. You are insurpassable! Because all other wards are rigged by boyfriends, producers directors, we are hopeful that the National Award will be yours! It behooves a credible award ceremony to honor your talent.

        Kangana makes me proud as an Indian. A girl from nowhere who gives a to serial-haters manipulators. She lives life on her own terms. Her Simran was a decent story with an extra-ordinary performance. Your movie has already turned profitable but people skirt that issue an focus on collections. Social media praises are diluted by hate speech from frustrated aged men and scornful women. You are the best actor Kangana and you are a superstar! A self-made and super-talented one. Cheers!

          I am a fan of Vidya Balan. Good actress, good movies, good selection of movies, good Hindi accent, natural Indian body curves without plastic surgery, no ego, no controversy, no name calling.

            Disappointing script and Ms Ranaut's acting also was mediocre ... I know people will say 'how dare you say' and 'kanagana was great' ... guys lets not get carried away with emotions, because there is a huge difference between we wanting something to work and the content produced being actually worth it ! Agree ?

              Only a dumb person can find Kangana's performance in Simran. She is superlative and her acting is world-class. People who are used to trash are blinded by excellence or they get very insecure. Half of industry women who have relases coming around this year and horrified by Kangana's rave reviews. They know that they cannot match Kangana in acting despite the uncles aunties rooting for them. That's why they use obscurity to plant nasty comments like this on Kangana to attempt to change the narrative. People are not fools!!
