  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This Friday’s new release, Mohit Suri’s Riteish Deshmukh, Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra starrer, `Ek Villain`, is all set to open to a good response, banking on a popular sound track and good promotion.

 Humshakals  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
As is always the case with Sajid Khan films (barring a `Himmatwala`), once again the critics have been ignored by the cinema audience, resulting in a good 38-39 crore (to be validated) opening weekend for his latest, `Humshakals`. The Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Bipasha Basu, Chunky Pandey, Ram Kapoor and Tamannah Bhatia starrer, `Humshakals`, has also grossed $2m during the opening weekend from the Overseas.

 Fugly  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 12 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 12 crore
Last week`s Akshay Kumar’s (Grazing Goat Pictures) Kabir Sadanand directed `Fugly`, managed a reasonable opening week, and should scrape to safety after accounting for non-theatrical rights.

 Multiple Releases  Verdict: Flops
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other releases of the same week as `Fugly`, namely the Deepak Dobriyal starrer `Chal Bhaag`, Zafar Shah’s `Unforgettable` and Swara Bhaskar’s paranormal thriller `Machhli Jal Ki Rani Hai` are all washouts.

 Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.32 crore; US$50,000 ; UK£20,000  Total Earnings: India Rs. 100 crore ; US$820,000 ; UK £235,000K
Meanwhile Vipul Shah’s A. R. Murugadoss directed Akshay-Sonakshi starrer, `Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty` , moved from strength-to-strength, as the days progressed. After a good opening week (68 crore), the film saw a rock steady second one! `Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty` has also done well in the Overseas grossing $3.75m.

 Heropanti  Verdict: Semi-hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 50.50 crore
Concluding with Sajid Nadiadwala’s Sabbir Khan directed Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon and Sandeepa Dhar starrer,`Heropanti`, the film ends up as semi-hit.
