Kangana Ranaut’s directorial debut Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi has successfully entered the 100 crore club at the domestic box office. With this, the movie becomes the second one to cross the 100 crore mark after Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike.
The Kangana starter movie released on January 25 and after 3 long weeks, the movie has made it to the 100 crore club. The movie had a steady run even after being released alongside Nawazuddin starrer Thackeray and receiving tough competition from Vicky Kaushal’s Uri. However, it did stumble when Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Gully Boy was released on the Valentine’s Day. On the bright side, the movie has gradually moved to complete the 100 crore mark.
As of now, the movie’s total collections stand at 100.05 crore, as per Box Office India.
