Simran box office collection day 5: After a good opening weekend, the Kangana Ranaut film seems to be on a downward slope. After opening at Rs 2.77 crore last Friday, its collection jumped to Rs 3.76 crore on Saturday and Rs 4.12 crore on Sunday. But on Tuesday it has only managed to collect Rs 1.25 crore.
Kangana Ranaut starrer Simran raked in a total of Rs 1.25 crore on Tuesday taking its total collection to Rs 13.31 crore over five days. Though it was already expected that the film’s collection will fizzle out on the weekdays as not many people are free enough to watch a movie on working days, the collection is still lower than expected. The film had opened at Rs 2.77 crore last Friday and on Saturday it has earned Rs 3.76 crore. Its collection climbed more on Sunday to Rs 4.12 crore.
This Hansal Mehta directorial is another film that sees Kangana in the shoes of a free-spirited woman. The reviews have not been flattering but the film has been receiving ample love from the audience. The film might also have gained from Kangana Ranaut’s interview in Aap Ki Adalat, where she made some explosive revelations regarding many men in Bollywood.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Wednesday tweeted the figures: “#Simran Fri 2.77 cr, Sat 3.76 cr, Sun 4.12 cr, Mon 1.41 cr, Tue 1.25 cr. Total: ₹ 13.31 cr. India biz.” Earlier, he had also said that Simran would need strong weekdays to get to a respectable total. “#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,” he had said.
Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had praised Kangana Ranaut in her review of the film but had also said the film suffers from a weak story. “But Kangana keeps us watching. With her plain unvarnished face, and mobile features, she comes across as a real, solid, complex woman, someone you can reach out and touch. When she’s on the top of her game, helping us ignore so many of the film’s loopholes, she’s glorious. It’s a pity her own story lets her down.”
