Box Office: 'Nautanki Saala', 'Commando' indulge in a stiff battle

New Delhi: 'Nautanki Saala!' and 'Commando' are giving a tough fight to each other at the box office with Rs 7.5 crore and Rs 7.08 crore earnings respectively in first two days of their releases.

If director Rohan Sippy's 'Nautanki Saala' is a comedy of errors with entertaining performances by actors Ayushmann Khuranna and Kunal Roy Kapoor, 'Commando' is an action-packed drama riding on the shoulders of lead actor Vidyut Jamwal.

Trade analyst Taran Aadarsh tweeted: "'Nautanki Saala!' Friday (collection) Rs 3.25 crore. Picked up at the (multi)plexes of urban centres."
