Garners average collections!

Though slammed by critics for various reasons, Ashutosh Gowarikar’s first rom-com has done average business over its first weekend. The movie managed to gross around Rs 9 crore and has done fairly well especially in the multiplexes of cities like Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore.

Thus What's Your Raashee? has managed “respectable” weekend collections, and Ashu must be a relieved man now. But the movie’s way to success is not easy. The film will be called a hit only if it manages a good collection by next week.

However, movie for the masses, Salman Khan’s ‘Wanted’ has grossed around Rs 11.50 crore approx over its second weekend. The film now has collected around Rs 45.75 crore. It continues to lure audiences and is having a very successful run at single screens all over, especially in the Hindi belt, showing hardly any drop from the first weekend. On the contrary, the movie has had average performance in the big cities.

Doesn’t matter, Wanted is already a hit.
