Last Friday, two Bollywood actors Kunal Kemmu and Randeep Hooda made their directorial debut with Madgaon Express and Swatantrya Veer Savarkar respectively. While one is a comedy flick, the other one is a biopic on Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. As both the films have clashed together at the box office, we got to see the winner of this race. Madgaon Express starring Divyenndu, Pratik Gandhi, Avinash Tiwary is leading the box office race compared to Randeep Hooda starrer.
