On the last weekend of July, we got to see a clash of Hindi films with South films at the box office. Mohit Suri’s multi-starrer film Ek Villain Returns’ which features actors John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria in the lead roles, seems to be giving tough competition to Kiccha Sudeep's pan-India film ‘Vikrant Rona’. Interestingly, ‘Vikrant Rona’ is being promoted by Salman Khan in the Hindi belt. Take a look at how both the newly released films performed at the box office on Sunday.

Vikrant Rona: Kiccha Sudeep's film did exceptional business at the box office in the first three days. The film surpassed the total collection of many Bollywood films in its initial phase itself. The power of South Star seems to be successful once again in pulling people to the theatres. This is the reason that the film collected Rs 14 crore on Sunday. Released across 2,500 screens globally (compared to 5,250 in the case of 'Shamshera'), the Kiccha Sudeep-starrer has raked in Rs 53.30 crore within four days.
Day 1: Rs 19.6 crore
Day 2: Rs 8.3 crore
Day 3: Rs 11.4 crore
Day 4: Rs 14.00 crore
Total: Rs 53.30 crore

Jug Jugg Jeeyo: Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Neetu Kapoor and Anil Kapoor's film has so far collected Rs 84.96 crore. If we talk about non-dubbed films released this year, 'Jug Jugg Jiyo' has become the sixth highest grossing film. Trade analysts believe that despite the new release, 'Jug Jug Jiyo' will continue to entertain the audience in the theatres and will soon cross the Rs 90 crore mark.
