Vidya Balan’s film Kahaani 2 earns Rs 20.97 cr. Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, the film managed to collect Rs 2.04 crore on Monday. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest collections of the film. He tweeted, “#Kahaani2 Fri 4.25 cr, Sat 5.79 cr, Sun 6.93 cr, Mon 2.04 cr, Tue 1.96 cr. Total: ₹ 20.97 cr. India biz.”
Vidya Balan and Arjun Rampal are getting a huge appreciation for their roles in Kahaani 2. However, most people have found the second half predictable. The film is getting tough competition from Dear Zindagi, which is a favourite amongst the multiplex audience. Kahaani 2 will also have to share theatre screens with next weekend’s release – Befikre starring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor.
But Vidya Balan doesn’t measure a film’s success by its box office collections. “I feel humbled when people say this about me. But I truly believe that I was in well-made films and those worked for me. My past four films haven’t worked. So it’s not just me. I alone can’t create box-office success,” said Vidya in an interview with indianexpress.com.

“I am not aware of what the disparity or parity is here. For the past eight to nine years, I have not worked with any superstar. But I will say this that I have always got the money I have quoted,” said Vidya on disparity on pay in Bollywood.
“For so many years, we have been seeing hero-oriented films. Now we have female actors playing central characters so it is okay to call it female-oriented. Someday there will be an equal number of male and female-oriented films and that will put an end to these terminologies. No one calls Gravity a female-centric film. So I think we still have some way to go before reaching there. Till then there is no harm in acknowledging it as female-oriented, ” she added.
