With Mardaani up for release, we look back at how married heroines have fared at the box office.

Rani Mukerji will be seen in her first release after marriage, in Mardaani.

We will know how the film fares, when it releases on August 22.

Until then, here's a look at how heroines, fresh after marriage, have fared at the box office earlier.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya Rai got married to Abhishek in a grand way in 2007.

Her film Jodha Akbar released the next year, and her on-screen pairing with Hrithik Roshan was much appreciated. Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the film started slow but went on to consolidate its place well.

Box office collections: Rs 68 crores.

Madhuri Dixit had almost completed Pukar before she tied the knot. The film released in 2000, a few months after she got married to Dr Sriram Nene.

In a role with grey shades, Madhuri managed to impress though it was her co-star Anil Kapoor who walked away with the National award.

The film was a slow starter at the box office and went on to be an average runner.

Box office collections: Rs 11 crores.

Playing a nagging housewife to Emraan Hashmi's character in the film, Vidya tried her best -- she even promoted the film in character -- but it didn't help.

Box office collections: Rs 38 crores.
