We don't know what to blame, the weak plot of Rock On 2 or the demonetisation but Farhan Akhtar's film Rock On 2 has failed to create any magic at the box office. Rock On 2, which is a sequel to the 2008 film Rock On, was unable to bring audiences to the theatres even on the weekend.
The movie earned Rs 2.02 Crores on its opening day. On Saturday it collected Rs 2.41 Crores and on Sunday the movie did a business of 2.58 Crores. Film critic Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, ''RockOn 2 is DISAPPOINTING... Fri 2.02 cr, Sat 2.41 cr, Sun 2.58 cr. Total: ₹ 7.01 cr. India biz.''
Meanwhile, check out some tweets on the movie below.
Dil Chahta Hai was a cult movie... Something Rock On was n #RockOn2 can never be! Sequels shouldn't be made!

#RockOn2 - It has a few mature sequences but not recommended even if they offer the tickets in return of the old currency notes.

The Government's decision to demonetise Rs. 500 and Rs 1000 notes has badly affected the collections of Rock On 2, feels the movie's producer Ritesh Sidhwani.

In an interview to a leading news agency, he said, "People are busy queueing up outside the banks and even if they are able to get the new Rs. 2000 note they are not able to get the change for it which is affecting the overall collection of the film. If we had any clue about the decision we would have definitely pushed the release date.''
Starring Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Shraddha Kapoor, Purab Kohli and Shashank Arora, Rock On 2 was released on 11th November.
