John Abraham’s Rocky Handsome had just about decent collections on Friday. The film was expected to record good numbers after Paid Previews brought in 1.77 crore on Thursday. However, with 5.29 crore coming in, the film has now accumulated 7.06 crore so far. Frankly, more was expected.


While it was predicted that competition from Hollywood release Batman v Superman won’t make much of an impact, that wasn’t the case to be as the superhero flick ended up collecting more. Though the word of mouth is mixed, the impact has still been felt from the collections standpoint. This isn’t all as Kapoor And Sons is continuing to do great guns and that further took away a good market share from the Nishikant Kamat directed film.

The good news for the film though is that at single screens and interiors, it has a market wide open. Hence, collections from these centers should be good for the action entertainer, which further caters to the markets there.

Stay tuned for the weekend updates.

Note: All collections as per production and distributor sources

  1. I don’t understand why did Koimoi thought Batman v Superman won’t effect Rocky Handsome collection. Specially when last year F7 did 100 crores business in India and Man of Steel also did a commendable business inspire of mixed reviews. Regarding BvS the curiosity and public eagerness was high from the release of the teaser which reflected at YouTube and Facebook. With time it increased among the people. Rocky Handsome trailer or first look was kool but could not match with the hype BvS created. People loved John doing the action specially his punches but that was not good enough to do more business than BvS in the opening week.
