Tanu Weds Manu has taken the trade by surprise. The Kangana Ranaut, R. Madhavan starrer picked up very well, mainly in the multiplexes of big cities, after a dull start. Collections of the 8th day were also good. Many of the distributors have recovered their entire MG royalty amounts in the first week itself in spite of opposition of World Cup cricket and examinations. The film is below the mark in single-screen cinemas and smaller centres. ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ made a total Rs. 14,76,63,872 from 446 cinemas.
Into its third week, Akshay Kumar and Anushka Sharma’s Patiala House made Rs. 97,75,137 from 225 cinemas. Yeh Saali Zindagi earned Rs. 16,94,477 from 67 cinemas in its fourth week. Drive Angry is average with Rs. 38,34,467 from 73 cinemas.
