Simran started off slow like Lucknow Central because reviews of both the films were unflattering. While Kangana Ranaut is the only person or reason critics recommended Simran, they simply ravaged Farhan Akhtar’s film for losing the plot completely. That can be seen in the box office numbers of both the films. While Simran is at Rs 10.56 crore, Lucknow Central could amass only Rs 8.42 crore. That says a lot about how both the films trended over the weekend. It truly was a dull weekend for the industry. But since someone works better than the other, Kangana Ranaut’s film has definitely taken the lead since the first day.


But it will be too far fetched to say that Simran has won because the film has only managed to beat the competition. It hasn’t managed to put up a big total which can aid it to the safe return of investment zone. According to reports, it is a Rs 30 crore film. Now everything depends on Monday which decides what the fate of movies will be.
