The much-awaited film of Rani Mukherji Mardaani 2 hit the big screens last Friday and it had locked horns with the Hollywood movie Jumanji: The Next Level. But looking at its box office collection it seems that it survived the clash. After an enduring role in Mardaani, Rani has again come back with a bang again as Shivani Shivaji Roy in Mardaani 2.
The trailer had already received its fair share of good response from the audience, and the fans were eager to witness Rani again in the cop avatar. Rani does win over the hearts of the viewers with her dashing role beating the goons, showing the victory of the good over the bad and also woman power. Rani`s role is winning the hearts of the critics as well and that can be seen in the box office collection of the movie. Even after the clash with the Hollywood big-budget and with “Pati Patni Aur Woh” still screening on the big screen, Mardaani 2 has earned Rs. 7.75 crores on Sunday at the box office, after a slow start on Saturday and date of release. As of today it has earned around Rs.18 crores all over India`s box office and seems to gain a steady speed.
Directed by Gopi Puthran, the film focuses on the chase of a serial murderer and rapist by Shivani Shivaji Roy, played by Rani Mukherji. The film heavily promoted itself by putting all the hoardings and questioning certain stigmas people have held captivated in their heads of why rapes happen, and with the Indian Society steaming with such news of rape and murder nowadays, the film reaches the audience with a higher impact. The audience is enjoying the showcase of Women Empowerment, with such a response from the audience the film will dig more revenue in the coming days.
