The film has been doing a good business at the Box Office with an amount of Rs 64. 65 crore after its second Friday. However, yesterday saw a little dip in its earning. Saturday and Sunday are expected to bring in more money for the film, making it easier for it to crawl till Rs 100 crore.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to reveal the collection update of Manikarnika… and wrote, “#Manikarnika takes a dip on [second] Fri… Should gather speed again over the weekend… [Week 2] Fri 3.50 cr. Total: ₹ 64.65 cr. India biz. #Hindi #Tamil #Telugu” (sic)
The film has been appreciated for Kangana’s powerful performance and a strong representation of Rani Laxmibai on screen. Manikarnika…, produced by Kamal Jain and Zee Studios, has been keeping a steady pace against Uri: The Surgical Strike, which is performing even well at the Box Office. This Aditya Dhar directorial is inching towards Rs 200 crore at the Box Office. Both the films are expected to do better this weekend.
Meanwhile, Manikarnika… has been into controversies due to many issues. Recently, Mishti Chakraborty, Kangana’s co-actor in the film, accused her of chopping her role. Now, Kangana, in her response, has said that anyone who feels she has been given a lesser screen space than expected to learn from her as she never cried even when she had a two-minute appearance in a film in the past.
