It was a low weekend as far as box office is concerned for all three Hindi films that were released this week — Fanney Khan, Karwaan and Mulk. After a low opening day, the trend continued as they earned Rs6.75 crore, Rs7.75 crore and Rs6.80 crore respectively, as per figures shared by Boxofficeindia.com.

Directed by Atul Manjrekar, Fanney Khan scored the highest among the three films on Friday, collecting Rs1.90 crore. However, at the end of the weekend, it turned out to have collected the least amount. Unfortunately, its estimated budget of Rs35 crore is the highest of the three films. Its chances to reach that figure seem grim.

Karwaan, which stars Irrfan Khan, Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar; and Mulk, which has Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu, saw some growth over Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately, the jump is not significant enough. As per trade sources, both films are made at an estimated budget of Rs18 crore each.

Hollywood film Mission: Impossible — Fallout, on the other hand, had a decent second weekend in India as it made Rs13.75 crore in the period. This takes its overall collection in India to an impressive Rs67.50 crore.
