"Queen" is giving tough competition to recently released " Bewakoofiyan" - while the Kangana starrer has hauled in Rs.21 crore and is still going strong at the box office, the weekend earning of Sonam Kapoor's film is just Rs.4.74 crore, say trade pundits.

Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines summed up the films' performances:"'Queen' is doing an outstanding business and it's still going houseful in many theaters. Though 'Bewakoofiyan' released this Friday, yet the business of 'Queen' has not been affected."

Directed by Vikas Bahl, "Queen", an atypical drama, came out March 7 along with much talked about Madhuri Dixit-Juhi Chawla's gritty hinterland drama "Gulaab Gang" and Yami Gautam and Ali Zafar's romantic comedy "Total Siyapaa".

Madhuri and Juhi in "Gulaab Gang" created a lot of pre-release buzz, but thanks to word of mouth publicity "Queen", which offered a tailor-made role to Kangana, left it behind in the race at box office. Even cross-border love story "Total Siyapaa" failed to impress critics and audiences.

After it exceeded the expectations of all and sundry in its release week, "Queen" is giving a tough competition to Yash Raj Films' release this week "Bewakofiyaan", a comedy that also stars Ayushmann Khurrana.

Film critic Taran Adarsh shared the first weekend earning of "Bewakoofiyan" and the second week collection of "Queen" on his Twitter page.

He tweeted: "'Bewakoofiyan' Fri Rs.2.23 crore, Sat Rs.2.51 crore. Total: Rs.4.74 crore nett. India biz."

"'Queen' (Week 2) Fri Rs.2.15 crore. Grand total: Rs.21 crore nett. India biz."

Thadani said: "'Queen' is doing well in the multiplexes universally and is growing universally with each passing day. The collection of 'Bewakoofiyan' is not up to the mark."
