Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam starrer URI: The Surgical Strike is still managing to hold the audience’s attention at the box office and keep the cash registers ringing. The film is working its magic despite being in theatres for more than a month. Directed by debutant director Aditya Dhar, the film has managed to rake in Rs 1.70 crore on Monday and Rs 1.61 crore on Tuesday, bringing its total to Rs 216.21 crore.

URI: The Surgical Strike has even managed to surpass the fifth-weekend collection of SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. URI is also Vicky’s and Yami’s first film to cross the coveted Rs 100 crore mark. The film also stars Paresh Rawal, Mohit Raina and Kirti Kulhari in pivotal roles.

On the other hand, Kangana Ranaut’s historical Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi has crossed the Rs 91.70 crore mark at the box office since its release on January 25. The film has been mired with controversies but is still holding strong at the box office and is inching closer to the coveted Rs 100 crore mark. If it crosses that then it will be a huge boost for Kangana who has not only acted in the film but also is a co-director.

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi also stars Richard Keep, Ankita Lokhande, Danny Denzogpa, Jisshu Sengupta, Nihaar Pandya, Suresh Oberoi and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub.
