Box Office: Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana fares below average

November 13, 2017 18:11 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana gets a poor opening and its growth over the weekend is not good enough to see the film to safety.

Qarib Qarib Single, with its appeal limited to metro multiplexes, gets an average opening. The film has improved over the weekend but will need to sustain through the week. 

The House Next Door flops.

Vinod Mirani gives us his weekly verdict.
