A hit for Salman, a miss for Rani

September 21, 2009 18:39 IST

Finally, Salman Khan can let out a sigh of relief, as his movie Wanted is a hit with movie goers.
Rani Mukherji, on the other hand, was not so lucky as her film Dil Bole Hadippa had a weak opening, and did not improve much even on Eid day.
