Mardaani 2 box office collection day 3: Rani Mukerji film earns Rs 18 cr, loses to Jumanji The Next Level
Mardaani 2, starring Rani Mukerji in the central role, witnessed a good run at the box office in its opening weekend. It had clashed with Dwayne Johnson, Kaevin Hart and Nick Jonas’ Jumanji: The Next Level, which managed to trump it at the ticket windows.
According to a report on Box Office India, Mardaani collected Rs 7.75 crore on Sunday. It had opened at Rs 3.80 crore on Friday and now stands at a total collection of around Rs 18 crore. The collections are, however, slightly better than the 2014 original, which had recorded a similar opening but collected Rs 14.46 crore in its first weekend.
Mardaani 2 is Rani’s latest release after her 2018 film Hichki. The film is a crime thriller that sees her reprising the role of SP Shivani Shivaji Roy. Directed by Gopi Puthran, it revolves around Rani’s character who goes all out to track down a rapist-murderer.
The film clashed with Jumanji, which went on to collect Rs 24.65 crore including the earnings from paid previews.
