The fantasy comic adventure Jumanji: The Next Level picks up where 2017's Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle left off, but there is a difference. The twist is that the grandfather (played by Danny DeVito) of one of the game's original players and his old-time buddy (Danny Glover) get transported into the game, too.
Jumanji's collection is more than that of Rani Mukerji-starrer Mardaani 2. The crime thriller which has received a positive response from the critics has minted Rs 18.15 crore in three days. Mardaani 2 was released in 1600 screens and managed to earn Rs 7.80 crore on the third day, more than double of its first-day collection of Rs 3.80 crore.

The film is a remake of the 1978 film of the same name and stars Ananya Panday, Kartik Aayan and Bhumi Pednekar in lead roles. Looking at the film's success, it looks to comfortably sail past the Rs 75 crore mark.
With the entry of Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 3 this week, it will be interesting to see how these films fare up at the box office.
