  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

The coming week will witness the release of Tiger Shroff’s ‘Baaghi', Amitabha Singh’s ‘Shortcut Safaari’, along with ‘Aakhri Sauda – The Last Deal’ and ‘Shaukeen Kaminay’. Needless to add that the front runner by a long margin will be Tiger’s ‘Baaghi’, coming after the success of ‘Heropanti’ as also due to the good promotion.

 Laal Rang  Verdict: -
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Meanwhile last week’s Syed Ahmad Afzal directed ‘Laal Rang’ failed to cut much ice with the audience, managing very ordinary numbers.

 Nil Battey Sannata  Verdict: -
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other release of the same week, Swara Bhaskar’s ‘Nil Battey Sannata’, managed good reviews but failed to translate the same into box-office rewards.

 Santa Banta Pvt. Ltd.  Verdict: -
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The last release of last the week, ‘Santa Banta Pvt. Ltd.', ended up nowhere!

 The Jungle Book  Verdict: Super hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 47 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 122 crore
In fact, the winner of April turned out to be the Hollywood venture, ‘The Jungle Book’, which after a superb opening week (75 crore for all formats and versions), kept up the tempo with a rock steady second week.

 Fan  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 72 crore ; UK£407,000 ; US$1,360,000  Total Earnings: India Rs. 72 crore ; UK£407,000 ; US$1,360,000
Checking out Maneesh Sharma’s Shah Rukh Khan starrer, ‘Fan’, after the best opening weekend (52 crore) of 2016, the film could not sustain during the weekdays. Having said that the 105 crore (all inclusive release cost) 'Fan' is a profitable venture for producer/distributor (worldwide) Yash Raj Films, as 60 percent of that has already been recovered via non-theatrical rights. However, one had hoped for a better outcome, given SRK’s star power, despite the film not being in his comfort zone.

‘Fan’ saw the best opening weekend of 2016, in the Overseas, grossing $6.25m.

 Ki & Ka  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 12.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 50 crore ; UK£265,000 ; US$890, 000
Concluding with R.Balki’s Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor starrer,'Ki & Ka', the film has ended its successful run.

'Ki & Ka' has also seen a reasonably run good in the Overseas grossing $3.50m.
