7 Days Total Collection of Rock On 2
Shujaat Saudagar’s musical drama ‘Rock On 2,’ which stars Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Prachi Desai and Shashank Arora in lead roles, continued its poor show at the box-office on its fifth day. On Tuesday, the film recorded a shockingly low collection of Rs 90 lakh. The total collection of the film after a five-day run stands at Rs 8.95 crore. According to experts, the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes by the government has little to do with the film’s failure as Hollywood film ‘Doctor Strange’ saw an upsurge in its collections despite the note ban.
Most cinema chains have even slashed the ticket prices owing to the dull response that the film is getting but even that couldn’t do much for ‘Rock On 2’. In the opening weekend, Shujaat Saudagar’s directorial recorded very poor occupancy of 10-20% through out and did the business of only 7.01 crores from 1700 screens across India. Now the movie is running weekdays and asusual getting witnessing lesser footfall in theaters than before. On Monday, due to holiday it showed little better performance than previous day and raked the business of 3 crores.
Then on the next day i.e. Tuesday, Farhan Akhtar starrer faced abrupt drop and managed to secure the amount of 0.91 crore. On Wednesday, Rock On 2 reported more drop in its occupancy and minted the amount of 0.70 crore* and 0.55 crore* of Thursday. With the end of its 7th day, total one week collection of Rock On 2 is recorded as 12.25 crores*. Now from this new week, an awaited action drama film Force 2 is releasing, so it will not be easy for existing ones to retain their pace.
