Mardaani takes an average opening

Rani Mukerji’s comeback film Mardaani has opened in 3000 screens today with an average occupancy of around 30%. Made on an average budget, the film is expected to collecte approximately 5 to6 crores today. Though it is being appreciated by the critics, the fact that it has received an A certificate might hinder the family audience percentage over the weekend and further on as well. Since Mardaani has Singhma Returns as competition from the past and Raja Natwarlal in the week to follow, it all boils down on how the film does over the weekend and according to trade pundits it can cater some audience in multiplexes and should bank around 25 crores in a weeks time. The success of the film is also dependent on the urban appeal and word of mouth. Meanwhile, Hollywood film The Expendables 3 that hit the theatres today has fared better than Mardaani in metros.

On the other hand, Ajay Devgn’s Singham Returns has minted 131.49 crores worldwide in a week, while Akshay Kumar’s Entertainment banked 79.19 crores in 2 weeks and Salman Khan’s Kick 298.84 crores in 4 weeks from its release.
