Begum Jaan first day collection: Clash With Furious 8, Manje Bistre
Begun Jaan has been severely affected by its clash with a Hollywood biggie Furious 8 and Gippy Grewal’s Punjabi movie Manje Bistre. Released on only 200 screens in Punjab, Haryana and Delhi City, Manje Bistre literally thrashed out Begum Jaan in NCR region.
