Box Office Report for the Week - 8 Apr 2010
  ´Prince´ Vivek All Set For A Comeback ; New Releases Fail
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

This Friday will see an exciting clash as Tips’ `Prince` starring Vivek Oberoi will take on the Milap Zhaveri directed Ritesh-Jacqueline venture `Jaane Kahan Se Aayee Hai`. One feels that it will be `Prince` which will win the battle due to a superb and sustained publicity and reasonably popular music. The third release of the week will be Aparna Sen’s `The Japanese Wife`, but it will only be appreciated by select multiplex audience.
