Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Queen’ is still going strong at the box office beating this week’s fresh release – Sonam Kapoor and Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘Bewakoofiyaan’. Queen has entered its third week.
‘Queen’ collected over Rs 11 crore on the second weekend, whereas last week’s fresh release ‘Bewakoofiyaan’ managed to collect a little above Rs 9 crore.
Queen’s grand total however stands at Rs 32 crore. Taran adarsh gave the official figures. “#Bewakoofiyaan Fri 2.23 cr, Sat 2.51 cr, Sun 2.57 cr, Mon 2.06 cr. Total: ₹ 9.37 cr nett. India biz.” and “#Queen [Week 2] Fri 2.15 cr, Sat 3.75 cr, Sun 4.75 cr, Mon 2.50 cr. Grand total: ₹ 32 cr nett. India biz.”
‘Bewakoofiyaan’ boasted of a strong star cast – Rishi Kpaoor, Sonam Kapoor and Ayushmann Khurrana but because of a weak script the movie failed to cast its spell on the audience.
Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Queen’ is rock steady, mainly due to the strong word-of -mouth and good reviews. Many Bollywood celebs including Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Sonakshi Sinha, Deepika Padukone among others has endorsed Kangana’s performance and the film itself.
In fact, Deepika Padukone even went on to say that she was jealous of Kangana Ranaut for bagging the role.
Big B said, “In recent times I have never experienced so much word of mouth of a film as I have for ‘Queen’ .. delighted for its makers !!”
Aamir Khan had tweeted, “What a film!!! Guys you have to watch QUEEN !!! Anyone who hasn’t seen it please go now and see it… Thank you to Vikas Bahl and his team which made the film. And Kangana… you rock!!!”
