Irrfan Khan and Dulquer Salmaan’s Karwaan edged out Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Fanney Khan to emerge victorious at the box office
Neighbourhood Entertainment Desk/Avi Arya: Irrfan Khan’s Karwaan was the surprise winner at this week’s domestic box office, beating out Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s more mainstream Fanney Khan, and Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu’s Mulk. According to the report, the road trip comedy-drama emerged victorious over the weekend with Rs 7.75 crore, followed by Fanney Khan and Mulk, which made Rs 6.75 crore.
A significant portion of Karwaan’s earnings, according to the report, came from Bangalore. Mulk was released in fewer screens than Fanney Khan, hence its under-performance isn’t as disappointing. Reviews for all three new releases have leaned on the positive side. Karwaan has an 80% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on five reviews, Fanney Khan has a 83% score based on six reviews and Mulk also has an 80% score, again based on five reviews.
