The two films appeal to two different set of audiences and in reality, there doesn't seem to be any clash between them whatsoever. However, Hansal Mehta's directorial Simran stole the thunder from Lucknow Central. Both movies opened to a lukewarm response at the box office though Kangana Ranaut's Simran took a considerable lead. The day one collection of Simran stands at Rs 2.50 crore against Lucknow Central's rather poor Rs 1.75 crore as per a Box Office India report. Let's have a look at the second day box office collection of Simran and Lucknow Central. It is being said that the total collection of the movie has now crossed Rs four crore mark. Her portrayal of a Gujarati girl is very effortless.
After a disappointing opening day with the collection of 2.77 crores, Simran witnessed a growth of 35.74% on its second day. Friday 2.04 cr, Sat 2.82 cr. This Ranjit Tiwari directorial did a business of Rs 2.82 crores on Saturday. The plot of the film revolves around Kishan Girhotra (Farhan) whose dreams of becoming a singer are shattered when he is falsely accused of murdering an IAS officer in Muradabad. This tale of Kishan has struck a chord with viewers, who have been heaping praises on the film.
Farhan Akhtar starrer 'Lucknow Central¿ has released in theatres today and is already getting accolades from critics as well as movie-goers. "#LucknowCentral shows 38.24% growth on Sat. Fri 2.04 cr, Sat 2.82 cr".
TOTAL (WORLDWIDE GROSS) - 2.85 Cr.
While congratulations galore for Farhan Akhtar and the "Lucknow Central" team, it is colleague and friend, Hrithik Roshan who took to Twitter to laud Lucknow Central's strong positive word of mouth.
