Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is all set to clash with Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Thackeray. The two movies have set up a box office battle over this Republic Day weekend (January 25). And while we are keen to see both of them, we also want to know which one will emerge triumphant? Will it be Manikarnika or Thackeray? The fact that both of them are biopics of revolutionary Indian leaders has got everyone excited, including us! The buzz around both the film seems high, but looks like Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi will be the one taking a massive opening at the ticket window. Thackeray, on the other hand, will start off slowly at the domestic box office.

It’s not us, but the box office trackings that reveal this to us! Super Cinema’s forecasts and predictions are generally bang on and their latest update have left us stunned. According to them, Manikarnika will open to a day 1 collection of Rs 13 – 15 crore, which is massive for such a film, that too on a non-holiday Friday. Obviously, with Republic Day on the next day, there will be a major spike and it will end up with a massive first weekend collection. Thackeray, on the other hand, will only be able to rake in Rs 2.75 – 3.50 crore. Yes, it will benefit from the January 26 holiday, but the opening weekend collections won’t be massive.

Clearly, Kangana’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi will trump Nawazuddin’s Thackeray at the domestic box office. But, what do you guys have to say about this?

Ajay Devgn has been in the film industry for over two decades and even today he is as entertaining as he was when he started his journey back in 1991. However, in the past few years, the talented actor has established himself as a bankable star. He is someone who can easily carry a film on his shoulders and get cash registers ringing. No wonder, he is one the busiest actors in Bollywood today. From working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali to teaming up with Rohit Shetty, Devgn has worked with various filmmakers and has also proved his versatility as an actor. In a nutshell, he is a complete package.

In fact, Ajay’s fan base has also increased lately because of the projects that he has been doing. His latest release Total Dhamaal arrived in the theatres yesterday, February 22, and got off to a good start. The comic caper, which co-stars Madhuri Dixit Nene, Anil Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi and few others, ended up earning Rs 16. 50 crore on day 1 which we think is mighty impressive.

While we are sure Total Dhamaal will continue to draw the audience at the cinema halls, over the years Ajay have delivered many blockbusters. In fact, Golmaal Again, which came out in 2017, is his highest grosser in India till date. Apart from Golmaal Again, check out how his last 10 films did at the box office and you’ll know why Ajay is considered a force to reckon with in Bollywood.

Coming back to Total Dhamaal, it’s the third film in the successful Dhamaal franchise directed by Indra Kumar. And next, Ajay will be seen in the historical drama Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior. Directed by Om Raut, the film has already gone on floors and also stars Sanjay Dutt, Saif Ali Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kajol in pivotal roles. The film is scheduled to release this year on November 22. So are you guys excited for Ajay’s next? Tell us in the comments section below.
