Malang and Shikara box office collection day 4

Last Friday Malang and Shikara hit the theatres. The two movies belong to completely different genres. While Malang is a crime-thriller, Shikara is inspired by real-life events. Both the movies saw a growth in their business on Sunday but Shikara's collection had that jump missing. The Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani-starrer earned Rs 9.76 crore while Shikara made Rs 1.90 crore. Both movies continue to sail through the Box Office at their own pace.

However, the real game-changer would be Monday -- and how Shikara and Malang fare at it. As per early estimates, Malang will possibly earn Rs 3.75-4 crore, while Shikara comes crashing down to Rs 40-50 lakh.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to put Sunday collection of Vidhu Vinod Chopra's directorial. ''#Shikara witnesses growth, but the 3-day total is low... Should’ve doubled its Day 1 number on Day 3... Needs to stay strong on weekdays - in Day 1 range or thereabouts - to score a respectable Week 1 total... Fri 1.20 cr, Sat 1.85 cr, Sun 1.90 cr. Total: ₹ 4.95 cr. #India biz'' he wrote.

''#Malang records decent weekend... Witnesses growth on Day 2 and 3, but jump on Day 3 is missing... Multiplexes improve... Mass circuits fair... Important to maintain the momentum on weekdays... Fri 6.71 cr, Sat 8.89 cr, Sun 9.76 cr. Total: ₹ 25.36 cr. #India biz,'' he wrote about Mohit Suri's directorial.

However, trade experts were expecting better numbers for Malang because of its popular genre and star cast. Malang also has Kunal Kemmu and Anil Kapoor in important roles. Read Malang review here.

Meanwhile, Shikara has new faces playing lead roles. Aadil Khan and Sadia play the lead pair in the movie which chronicles the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley.  Read Shikara review here.
