In terms of business, according to early estimates, Rustom has manged to take an opening of approximately 13.50 crores* at the box office. The film enjoyed decent footfalls in cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, UP etc compared to Mohenjo Daro.
The Ashutosh Gowarikar film on the other hand, took an opening of approximately 8.50 crores at the domestic box office. The numbers look slightly low for a Hrithik Roshan film since films like Baaghi and Dishoom took a better opening than this.
It will be crucial for Mohenjo Daro to build up over the weekend and it will have to rely on a huge positive word of mouth for the same. Rustom on the other hand is expected to pick up over the weekend considering Akshay Kumar’s films in such genres, always manage to put up a good weekend business.
