Emraan Hashmi’s Raja Natwarlala which released last Friday in 2000 screens across the country was able to bank only Rs. 6.10 crores on its first day. Though the film started on a weak note, it was expected to do better over the weekend. But against all assumptions, the numbers dropped severely on the second day and nor did they get better on the third. The film collected Rs. 5.15 crores on Saturday and Rs. 6.15 crores on Sunday. According to ongoing trends, Raja Natwarlal has failed to impress the masses and will stutter around at 25 to 30 crores nett lifetime collection. The film is facing tough competition from Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani which witnessed a decent second weekend at the box office. A good word of mouth and no big releases along with it worked in Mardaani’s favor. The film has so far collected Rs. 33.97 crores worldwide.
With Priyanka Chopra’s highly anticipated Mary Kom releasing this Friday, both Raja Natwarlal and Mardaani have only 4 days to bank strong.
