Box Office: Dear Zindagi opens well

Last updated on: November 28, 2016 19:55 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Dear Zindagi has done fairly well in its opening weekend at the box office. But since it caters to a multiplex audience only, it will have to sustain over the next four days to cover costs.

The other release, Moh Maya Money, flops.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the weekly verdict.
