Trade analyst were thinking that the business of Rowdy Rathore will be affected by Shanghai. But it was vice versa. It seemed to be unstoppable at the Box Office as it remained the first choice of filmgoers. It raked in Rs 22 crores nett in the second weekend. It fared well in the weekdays too and collected another Rs 13 crores nett.
Rowdy Rathore, which had grossed Rs 79.52 crores nett in week one, had failed to break the first week collection record of Agneepath, which had collected Rs 85.88 crores in the eight-days extended week. Agneepath had added Rs 23.12 crores to its two-week total to Rs 109 crore. Whereas, Rowdy Rathore has broken its second week record by adding Rs 35 crores nett to its total collection Rs 114.5 crores nett.
However, despite getting flowery reviews from critics, Shanghai failed to get a big opening at the Box Office. Although the film witnessed some growth at hi-end multiplexes of metros, its collection could not go beyond Rs 12 crores nett in the first weekend. But the movie slid downwards in the weekdays. It added Rs 5.5 crores to its first week's total Shanghai.
