Box office: Karwaan, Mulk, Fanney Khan have low first week  

Irrfan Khan-starrer Karwaan earned Rs12.05 crore nett, Rishi Kapoor-starrer Mulk bagged Rs11.30 crore nett, and the much-hyped Fanney Khan got a poor Rs9.35 crore nett in the opening week.

Three noted Hindi films were released last Friday (3 August), but none of them could bring much cheer to the trade. Fanney Khan, Mulk and Karwaan have all turned out to be disappointing at the box office. The competition has clearly hurt all three.

After the first week, Irrfan Khan-starrer Karwaan is ahead of the three collecting Rs12.05 crore nett, as reported by Boxofficeindia.com. Made at an estimated budget of Rs18 crore, the film, directed by Akarsh Khurana, was released across 800 screens in India.

Mulk had the same budget and it was released across 800 screens too. The film, directed by Anubhav Sinha, made Rs11.30 crore nett in the first week. Mulk and Karwaan can take solace in the fact that they got largely positive reviews.  

However, that cannot be said about Fanney Khan as the film, starring Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, got negative reviews and it made a poor Rs9.35 crore nett in the first week. Made at a budget of Rs35 crore, Fanney Khan was released in over 1,200 screens. Fanney Khan had taken the lead ahead of Karwaan and Mulk on the opening day, but fell flat soon after.
