Box Office: Dil Dhadakne Do has disappointing opening

June 08, 2015 15:43 IST

Kangana Ranaut still reigns supreme!

Dil Dhadakne Do failed to cash in on its multi-star cast as well as the huge hype created around it, as it opened to a weak response at the box office. The collections improved only marginally over the weekend.
