Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#RockyHandsome Thu previews ₹ 1.84 cr.
India biz. VERY GOOD!"
On Friday, the movie obtained second highest opening after
Akshay Kumar's Airlift in the morning shows. The film
opened to 25-30% occupancy, which is really good, while Batman
Vs Superman opened to 50% occupancy.
Though Rocky Handsome is a solo Hindi release, it is
facing stiff competition from Hollywood film, Batman Vs
Superman, especially since the former movie released in very
limited number of screens.
Rocky Handsome is targeted towards single screen
theaters and other small centers as Batman Vs Superman
will take better occupancy in multiplexes.
John Abraham starrer has opened to mixed reviews, but mostly
good ones which has helped in attracting the viewers. Good word of
mouth has increased the footfalls in the evening and night
Since Good Friday is a holiday, the long weekend has proved to
be beneficial for the makers who are expecting to cash in on it,
The film has collected Rs Rs 5.29 crores on Friday, reported
trade expert, Taran Adarsh, "#RockyHandsome Thu previews 1.77 cr,
Fri 5.29 cr. Total: ₹ 7.06 cr. India biz."
In spite of other good movie releases, Sonam Kapoor's
Neerja is running into its 6th week and Kapoor And
Sons starring Alia Bhatt, Fawad Khan and Sidharth Malhotra too
is running successfully for it is a flawless movie.
These two old but damn good movies are also giving John's film a
little competition, especially Kapoor And Sons which has
collected Rs 100 crores at the Box Office.
