Eros International Media shares jumped as much as 5 per cent on Monday as the Mumbai-based movie production and distribution company's latest film 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' headed towards the Rs 50-crore mark in collections.

Another analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted that 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' likely recovered its cost over the weekend itself. The laugh riot featuring Kangana Ranaut and R Madhavan was made at an estimated cost of Rs 30 crore.


'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' has also proved to be a major success abroad, according to trade analysts.
