Shah Rukh Khan’s superhero movie, Ra.One (Read Review), which released yesterday (Wednesday, October 26) made Rs. 15.50 – 16 crore in all-India net collections on the opening day.
The collections of the movie were affected because of the Diwali celebrations, with many Hindu families staying at home for pooja and festivities. Although the film might have failed to break the opening day record of Bodyguard (Rs. 21 crore net), Ra.One has set a new record for Diwali day collections.
However, given the hype around the film, the extensive promotional campaign and the raised ticket prices, the opening day collections of the Shah Rukh Khan starrer were not up to the mark.
