Directed by Omung Kumar, "Mary Kom" came out Sep 5 and till Tuesday it has collected Rs.38.95 crore at the box office. The film is reportedly going steady. However, there was dip on Monday owing to Ganesh Visarjan in Mumbai, which makes for 40 percent of the total market share, said a source from the production house. According to Priyanka, the film has "opened well and that is a huge relief for me. Now let's see how long does it sustain in the second week."
The actress, who has turned producer with "Madamji", which is being directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, says she is yet to understand the number game, but hopes to learn on the job. She said: "I am a creative person and I get confused with the number game. I have a very strong team. Eventually when you make a film, it will be a learning experience." Meanwhile, "Mary Kom" is riding ahead on positive word of mouth, and the makers are confident that since English language Bollywood entertainer "Finding Fanny" is a niche offering it may not eat up the box office share of "Mary Kom" when it hits the screens Friday
