Box office: 'Queen' leads but '300' reigns supreme in opening weekend
Surprise, surprise, surprise. It’s not the two divas Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla who ruled the box office this weekend, but Kangana Ranaut had the lead with her film Queen. But reigning supreme was the Hollywood release 300: Rise Of An Empire.

All hail the Queen. The film by director Vikas Bahl isn’t just raking in praises galore for its actress Kangana Ranaut, it also fared relatively better than the other two new Bollywood releases: Gulaab Gang, starring Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla and Total Siyapaa featuring Ali Zafar and Yaami Gautam.

'Queen' showed remarkable growth since its dull opening of Rs. 1.75 crore nett (India Box office) on Friday. On Saturday, the film’s collection jumped to Rs. 3.50 crore (a 100 percent increase from Friday) and peaked with Rs. 4.75 crore on Sunday, taking the opening weekend tally to Rs. 10 crore net.

In comparison, director Soumik Sen’s 'Gulaab Gang' stayed pretty much flat during the weekend. It minted Rs. 2.41 crore on Friday, Rs. 2.97 crore on Saturday, and Rs. 3.46 crore on Sunday. Weekend total: Rs. 8.84 crore, which is below expectations.

'Total Siyapaa' managed to collect a little over Rs. 4 crore in opening weekend.

Reigning supreme, however, was the Hollywood release '300: Rise of an Empire'. The film minted over Rs. 15 crore at the Indian box office in the opening weekend, from all its English and dubbed versions.

Overall, there’s a lull in the business at the box office, because of the ongoing exam season in schools and colleges.

The coming Friday would see the release of Bewakoofiyaan (watch trailer here), starring Sonam Kapoor and Ayushmann Khuranna.
