With the release of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor's Saaho this week, the Hindi box office will have a few big banners vying for the top position. Batla House and Mission Mangal are currently bringing in considerable numbers, and may well prove to be tough competitors for Saaho.

Batla House has successfully completed a two-week run. The total collections of the film by its third Thursday stand at Rs 1.72 crore, bringing the total up to Rs 91.76 crore.

On the other hand, Akshay Kumar, Fox Star Studios, and Hope Productions' Mission Mangal had a considerable run at the box office earning Rs 178.11 crore in two weeks. The space film is inching closer to beat his highest grosser, 2.0 (which garnered Rs 189.55 cr).
