Manikarnika, the recently released historical drama, which started its Box office journey with a decent collection, has witnessed a fillip. The weekend has worked in favour of the film and helped it mint Rs 18.10 crore on the second day of the release.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the current collections of the film.

“#Manikarnika sees remarkable growth on Day 2… Strong word of mouth has come into play, while #RepublicDay holiday has given the much-required boost… Day 3 will be in double digits again… Fri 8.75 cr, Sat 18.10 cr. Total:₹ 26.85 cr. India biz,” the tweet read.

The Kangana Ranaut starrer clashed with Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Thackeray but that didn’t quite affect its business. Meanwhile, the biopic of late Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray has earned a total of Rs 16 crore in two days.

Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is a film that captures the life story of Rani Laxmibai. Directed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi and Kangana Ranaut, the film also stars Danny Denzongpa, Ankita Lokhande, Atul Kulkarni, Suresh Oberoi, and Jisshu Sengupta in key roles.

Produced by Zee Studios in association with Kamal Jain and Nishant Pitti, the movie was released on January 25.
