Kareena, Shahid tank at Box office

July 12, 2010 17:00 IST

Last week saw two releases Milenge Milenge and Red Alert -- The War Within. Both got a very weak response from the audience.

As of now, I Hate Luv Storys is has got an average response, but with no good films scheduled to release this week, it has a fair chance of doing better.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the box office verdict for the week.
