Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, the current trend suggests that the film will continue to remain low during the weekdays. The film, however, does stand a chance in its second weekend. But again, it might face a tough fight from the much-in-buzz Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga which is set to hit the screens this Friday. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga film is the romantic drama which stars Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao in the lead roles.
