This week’s new releases Shikara and Malang opened to decent numbers in Indian theatres. While the first day numbers were decent, the second day of both films has shown growth. Shikara clocked in 1.85 crore which according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh is rare for a film with newcomers. Malang too saw a jump from 6.71 crore to 8.89 crore.

Shikara, directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, a romantic drama set in the backdrop of the Kashmiri Pandit exodus collected Rs 1.20 crore on Day 1. Unlike a mainstream commercial Hindi film, Shikara had a limited release which focused mainly on multiplexes.

Malang on the other hand, a typical Bollywood commercial film featuring Anil Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, Kunal Khemu and others earned Rs 6.71 crore.

Both films will need to see a jump in collections over the weekend and sustain their earnings over their first week at the box office to be considered successes. Shikara is likely to see an upward trend in ticket sales due to good reviews and word of mouth publicity. However, it is Aditya Roy Kapur who needs a hit since both his last releases Ok Jaanu and Kalank were failures.
