Mubarakan has been trending steadily at the box office. After Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal got a lukewarm response, the chances of this comic caper shining brighter have considerably increased.
Arjun Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty starrer Mubarakan is emerging as public’s favourite among the sturdy competition at the box office. From Jagga Jasoos To Munna Michael, from Dunkirk to Lipstick Under My Burkha and now Jab Harry Met Sejal; this movie has faced competition from everywhere but as they say – the movie will work if made well.
Mubarakan collected 35.66 crores at the box office in its week 1. On 2nd Friday the film saw a bit stumble as it collected 1.10 crores but 2nd Saturday came in as a surprise for this film – it collected 2 crores showing around 100% jump. The film now stands at the grand total of 38.76 crores. It has surpassed Ileana D’Cruz’s Phata Poster Nikla Hero (41.74 crores) and now stands at number 4 in Ileana D’Cruz’s highest grossing list.

Ileana D’Cruz has a decent track record at the box office but the only issue with her is she has mostly starred in multi-starrers. It’ll be interesting to see her in a solo heroine film. She has proved she can act well; a right project is what she needs.
