It seems Kangana Ranaut was Madhavan’s lucky charm in Tanu Weds Manu and its sequel as the actor has failed to deliver another hit in Saala Khadoos. The film has opened to mostly empty halls. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh has tweeted about the film’s business.

#SaalaKhadoos [Tamil] Fri 91 lacs, Sat 1.45 cr, Sun 1.78 cr. Total: ₹ 4.14 cr... Hindi ₹ 5.79 cr + Tamil ₹ 4.14 cr total: ₹ 9.93 cr.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) February 1, 2016
Saala Khadoos is backed by a good producer in Rajkumar Hirani while debutant Ritika Singh has been praised for her performance in the film. Critics are also impressed with Madhavan’s nuanced acting. However, despite all these, Saala Khadoos has not garnered enough momentum at the ticket window.
Directed by Sudha Kongara Prasad, Saala Khadoos features Madhavan as a cynical boxing coach while Ritika Singh plays his disciple.
