Juhi Chawla and Madhuri Dixit in Gulaab Gang

Last week's release Gulaab Gang failed to live up to expectations.

The film was below average during its opening weekend and is expected to go down further as the week progresses.

Meanwhile, Kangna Ranaut starrer Queen is going steady and Total Siyapaa has, well almost, sank without a trace.
