This week saw the release of Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla starrer Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. The movie deals with the subject of homosexuality and it has been rejected by Indian audiences. Though the movie has received mostly positive reviews, looks like the moviegoers were not ready to watch a mainstream actress playing the character of a lesbian on the big screen. The film took a slow start at the box office and according to Box Office India, it collected Rs 2.75 crore.
As the reviews were on a positive side, it was expected that the film will show some growth over the weekend which mostly happens with content-driven movies. However, that didn’t happen. On Saturday there was a slight jump and ELKDTAL collected Rs 4 crore, but then on Sunday, there was not much growth with the collection being Rs 4.50 crore. In three days, the movie has collected Rs 11.25 crore which is quite less. With weekend collection being so less, it seems difficult for the film to pick up on weekdays.

On the other hand, Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi has done quite well in its second weekend. The film has collected Rs 13.50 crore which is decent. The total of the film so far is Rs 70.06 crore. The collection is very good looking at the face value of the film as there’s only Kangana who got audiences to theatres. But, due to the high budget of its production, one cannot term it as a blockbuster. However, the makers are surely looking at a good profit thanks to pre-release sales.
Coming to one film whose josh is still high at the box office in its fourth weekend. We are talking about Uri: The Surgical Strike. The Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam starrer has collected Rs 18.25 crore in its fourth weekend, taking the till date total to Rs 188.98 crore. We won’t be surprised if it enters the 200 crore club.
