Challenging Star Darshan's Roberrt was released amid much fanfare. The film graced the theatres on March 11 coinciding with Maha Shivratri in Kannada and Telugu (dubbed version) languages. Upon its release, Roberrt received a tremendous response from Karnataka, however, the film failed to impress the Telugu audience, which quite reflected on its box office collection as well.
Though the film was expected to weave magic in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the huge success of Naveen Polishetty's Jathi Ratnalu which released on the same date deviated the attention of the cine-goers, becoming one of the reasons for Roberrt's failure.
Talking about the film's business, it has so far acquired a total share of Rs 25.4 lakh in Telugu states The total gross collection of the Darshan-starrer is Rs 0.42 crore while the film has incurred a huge loss of Rs 1.55 crore. Notably, the film did an overall business of Rs 1.50 crore in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
