This week's new Hindi releases Nautanki Saala and Commando have received an excellent opening at the Indian Box Office. In the first weekend, the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer has topped the collection chart, while the Vidyut Jamwal starrer landed in the second spot. Meanwhile, last week's release Chashme Baddoor, which has graced third spot, seemed to be giving tough competition to the new releases.

The Ayushmann Khurrana starrer fetched a decent start at multiplexes of major centres, while the Vidyut Jamwal starrer had a better start at single screens of mass-dominated belt on Friday. Commando, which did better collection than Nautanki Saala on their opening day, showed dip on Saturday, while the business of the latter went up.
Nautanki Saala has collected Rs 13.25 crores nett at domestic Box Office in the first weekend and its breakup is Rs 3.25 cr on Fri, Rs 4.75 cr on Sat and Rs 5.25 cr on Sun. Whereas Commando has raked in Rs 11.18 crores nett at desi Box Office in three days and its breakup is Rs 3.69 cr on Fri, Rs 3.39 cr on Sat and Rs 4.10 cr on Sun. Both films would eventually turn out to be decent earners by the end of the first week.
