  Audience Still Not ´Ready´ For ´Bheja Fry´ By A ´Shaitan´!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

It is once again Anees Bazmee`s `Ready` which remains the first choice of the audience, despite five new films - `Bheja Fry 2`, `Always Kabhi Kabhi`, `Bin Bulaye Baraati`, `Bhindi Bazaar Inc` and `Cycle Kick`.

The month of June started with a bang as Anees Bazmee’s `Ready` saw a very steady weekday run after a huge weekend. Even the second week has been quite bountiful (30 crore plus) and the Salman-Asin starrer is a sureshot blockbuster.
