Everyone was expecting Rocket Singh - Salesman Of The Year to start with a bang, given the fact that Ranbir Kapoor's last two films, Wake Up Sid and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, had fetched a flying start. Also, the fact that Aditya Chopra, Shimit Amin and Jaideep Sahni had teamed up with Ranbir, only raised the expectations from the film. But the poor start of Rocket Singh sent shock waves within the industry. The film had a 20% to 40% start at certain plexes and at places, 10% to 15% start.
The reports are extremely mixed and it remains to be seen if the film picks up on Saturday and Sunday, like Yash Raj's previous two biggies, Chak De India and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
