The coming Friday will witness the release of the comeback vehicle of Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan, `Jazbaa`. The Sanjay Gupta directed film will see her teaming up with Irrfan Khan, and the film should make a mark, especially at the metro multiplexes.

 Singh Is Bliing  Verdict: Released
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The premier release of the week, Akshay-Amy’s `Singh Is Bliing`, embarked on a great start with North (especially Delhi-NCR and East Punjab) being excellent. The film ended the first weekend netting 50 crore from India. The Prabhu Dheva directed `Singh Is Bliing` has also done very well in the Overseas grossing $2.50m during the first weekend.

Checking out director duo, Abbas-Mustan (this time in a comic venture unlike their forte; thrillers!) and TV host and now actor Kapil Sharma venture, `Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon`, the film surprised one and all with a great run, more so due to it`s moderate 21 crore (all inclusive) cost. The film has performed very well in the Overseas too.
