Mardaani 2 box office collection prediction: The order of the day in the Hindi Film Industry seems to be in the favor of sequels. However, one film that promises to return on the silver screen on public demand is Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani 2. Slated for a release this Friday on December 13, Mardaani 2 promises to bigger and better with Rani Mukerji as Shivani Shivaji Roy picking on a fight against a serial rapist and killer who targets young girls in Kota.
Before we move onto Mardaani 2, here’s a peak at the business of the first installment. Mardaani addressed the issue of human trafficking and released on August 22, 2014. On its opening day, the film earned Rs 3.46 crore and wrapped up at the ticket counters with a total collection of Rs 35.82 crore. Even though the collections of Mardaani 2, it managed to break even and emerge as a success.
Rani Mukerji’s last release Hichki also faced a similar fate. The film opened with Rs 3.30 crore at the box office and went on to earn a total collection of Rs 46.21 crore in its lifetime. Speaking about Mardaani 2, the film has managed to make a strong impact with its hard-hitting trailer. The buzz around the film, however, remains low owing to no promotional songs and low promotional activity on and off social media. Henceforth, Mardaani 2 might open at the ticket counters with Rs 3-4 crore and consolidate its business at Rs 50 crore.
Although Mardaani 2 will clash with The Body starring Emraan Hashmi, Sobhita Dhulipala and Rishi Kapoor, the latter will not affect its business at all. The real competition for Mardaani 2 will begin on December 20 when Salman Khan’s much-anticipated film Dabangg 3 hits the silver screen.
Speaking about Mardaani 2, the film has been helmed by Gopi Puthran and bankrolled by Aditya Chopra under the banner of Yash Raj Films. The film also stars Vishal Jethwa, Vikram Singh Chauhan, Shruti Bapna, Rajesh Sharma and Deepika Amin.
