The first week collections for Malaal (2019) stand at Rs2.75 crore, according to the numbers shared by Boxofficeindia.com.

The love story, which launched star kids Meezaan Jaaferi and Sharmin Segal, could not connect with audiences outside Maharashtra. The film, directed by Mangesh Hadawale, was set in Mumbai and featured a Maharashtrain boy falling for a girl from north India.

Meanwhile, Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15 (2019) continued its consistent run earning Rs18 crore in its second week, bringing its second week total to Rs52 crore. The film was likely hit by the cricket World Cup semi-finals and might pick up more viewers in its third week due to strong word-of-mouth.
