It was an eventful Friday this week, as two major films Simran and Lucknow Central hit the silverscreen together. Hansal Mehta’s Simran stars the fierce actress Kangana Ranaut while Ranjit Tiwar’s Lucknow Central features Farhan Akhtar. Both Kangana Ranaut and Farhan Akhtar have proved their mettle in the industry with a number of box office hits in their kitties. This time, the duo is set to lock horns in terms of box office numbers. The films which released on 15th September received a mixed response from both audience and critics. Let’s analyze what the first day collection of the films says. 

Kangana Ranaut-starrer Simran Box Office Day 1 Collection

Kangana Ranaut has been lauded by movie lovers for her excellent performance in the film. But it was felt that Kangana’s skills were overpowering the flick’s plot. For the fact that it was a Hansal Mehta-film, people had sky rocketing expectations from the it. But the film had nothing new to offer. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh called Simran overall disappointing while praising Kangana’s performance. The film raked in Rs. 2.77 crore on its opening. 

Farhan Akhtar’s Lucknow Central Box Office Day 1 Collection 

Farhan Akhtar-starrer met the similar fate. Despite having such a wonderful actor as a lead, the film failed to cast its spell on the audience. The screenwriting was lacking, which gets the entire course of the film tedious.  Farhan Akhtar and the supporting cast’s acting was, however, lauded by both critics and movie buffs. Lucknow Central raked in Rs. 2.04 crore on its opening. 

Going by the day 1 report, both Simran and Lucknow Central are standing face-to-face with each other on box office. Let’s see which film manages to excel over the weekend.
