Box Office: Marjaavaan gets decent opening

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Marjaavaan sustains through its opening weekend while the other three releases — Motichoor Chakanachoor, Jhalki and Bagpat Ka Dulhha — fail at the box office.

Ayushmann Khurrana’s Bala consolidates itself over the weekend and becomes a hit.

Vinod Mirani gives us his weekly verdict.
