But the big surprise this weekend is the down of Lov Aaj Kal and the maintaining of Malang collections. While Lov Aaj Kal had Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan in the lead roles was able to collect a palpable Rs. 1.5 crores in the second week. Aditya Roy Kapoor Disha Patani movie Malang was able to collect 2.8 on its third weekend.
Film collections, though based on the quality of the film, also depend on many factors. Hope movies collect more money even during weekdays to make people happy, along with the theatre owners and others related to the film industry.
