Lootera does fairly well, even as Policegiri struggles

MUMBAI: The Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha love story Lootera has had a fair weekend thanks to Mumbai and Delhi multiplex collections. The film has collected Rs 15.55 crore for the opening weekend. This is Vikramaditya Motwane‘s second directorial venture, following the critically acclaimed Udaan (2010).

Raanjhanaa, which marked the debut of the south superstar Dhanush of Kolavari Di fame, and met with mixed response due to its second half remained steady in its second week and has collected Rs 17.1 crore, thereby taking its two week total to Rs 49.3 crore. The distributors‘ smaller circuits were the first to earn profits on the film.

Fukrey has managed to add another Rs 4.5 crore in its third week taking its three week tally to Rs 32.7 crore.

Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani has collected Rs 1.8 crore in its fifth week. The film‘s five week total now stands at Rs 182.05 crore.
