The much-anticipated romantic drama, “Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani,” had an impressive Monday at the box office, with collections in the approximate range of 6.90 crore nett.
After a lukewarm weekend, this strong Monday performance has injected new hope into the film’s prospects. The initial numbers for the film were not very encouraging, as the weekend collections were relatively low.
However, the tide seems to be turning as Monday significantly boosted box office numbers. The key factor here is the positive trend the film is exhibiting, indicating that it might have a prolonged run in the cinemas.
The success of “Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani” is largely dependent on how it performs in metropolitan cities, as they are the primary drivers of box office revenue. The film seems to be resonating well with the urban audience, and their continued support will be crucial in determining the film’s overall performance.
Based on the current trend, the film is expected to maintain a steady pace and accumulate around 70-72 crore nett in its first week. However, the real test will come with the crucial second Friday, where the movie will need to post strong numbers to compete against other releases in the third week.
Let’s take a look at the film’s box office performance in the first four days:
Friday – 11.10 crore nett
Saturday – 16.05 crore nett
Sunday – 18.75 crore nett
Monday – 6.90 crore nett (approximate)
Total – 53.05 crore nett (approximate)
The positive word of mouth is likely to work in favour of the Karan Johar directorial in the long term. The film’s star-studded cast, led by the charismatic performances of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, has undeniably been a major draw for audiences, pulling them to theatres. Additionally, Director Karan Johar’s masterful storytelling and unique vision have further enhanced the movie’s appeal, adding to its overall charm.
