Rani Mukherji's latest release "Mardaani" is going rock steady in India.

The Tuesday's box office collection of the action drama film was in the same range like on Monday.

The film has now taken its five days total to ₹19.10 crore. The action drama film has also earned its production cost, which is said to be ₹14 crore within its first week.

The film is maintaining a steady pace at the box office because of the positive response from the audience. Mukherji's performance as a crime branch official and its strong storyline worked in favour of the film.

Here is the breakup of the film: Friday ₹3.46 crore, Saturday ₹4.75 crore, Sunday ₹6.25 crore Monday ₹2.43 crore and Tuesday ₹2.41 crore.

The film would safely sail into the safe zone after the first week's performance, as it has earned the production cost.

Meanwhile, the film is expected to fare in a decent amount in the coming days as it has been declared tax free in two states. After Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh government also decided to exempt the film from entertainment tax.

"The state government has decided to exempt the film from entertainment tax as it raises awareness about the trafficking of girls and women," an official statement issued, according to Press Trust of India.

"Singham Returns"

Ajay Devgn starrer "Singham Returns" also maintained a steady pace at the box office.

The film raked in around ₹2.36 crore on its second Tuesday, taking its overall total to ₹132.36 crore.

In its first week, the film was released in 3,600 screens, but in its second week the screen count came down to 2,000 screens, which affected the box office income of the film. But overall, the film maintained its position in the collection chart.

"Singham Returns" is a complete Bollywood masala entertainer film with action, drama, romance and comedy.

The film is a mass entertainer and hence it maintained a strong hold at the box office during its second weekend.
