Ra.One collects Rs 625 mn gross at BO in 2 days

MUMBAI: Eros International Media (Eros International) said today that Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan‘s superhero film Ra.One has garnered a gross collection of Rs 625 million in first two days.

Ra.One, produced by Red Chillies Entertainments was released across theatres worldwide on 26 October.

The movie grossed Rs 265 million with a net of Rs 185 million on Wednesday, making it the highest ever Diwali day collection in the history of Indian cinema, eros said.

The second day collections on Thursday were even more as the film raked in Rs 360 million gross with a net of Rs 251 million.

"Also in the overseas market, the film has shown magnificent performance being the highest collections for any Indian film so far," the company said.

Eros International Media SVP distribution Nandu Ahuja said, "We are witnessing unparalleled collections across the country with record breaking figures from different territories. Business usually gets hampered on Diwali day in the evening due to Laxmi Pooja, despite which Ra.One has performed exceptionally well across the country and has proved to be the biggest ever Diwali day release. The film has opened at 95 to 100 per cent collections from most territories and is a sure sign of one of the biggest blockbusters in the making in Bollywood. The second day figures have also broken records for the highest collections for a single day for an Indian film."

Eros International Media Group CFO Kamal Jain added, "Majority of the film‘s costs have been recovered before the film hit theatres and the box office numbers are exemplary giving major boost to profitability. We are extremely happy with the box office performance of the film as the same is very much in line with our expectations."

Ra.One opened across more than 4,000 plus screens worldwide - 3,100 plus screens in India and 904 prints internationally, including 3D, Tamil and Telugu.
