Ra.One nets Rs 803 million at BO

MUMBAI: Shah Rukh Khan‘s most ambitious superhero film Ra.One, as things emerge, has mainly its special effects to offer sans a plausible script and entertainment. Eventually the film ends up with more than its share of detractors as the audience show thumbs down to the film.

The film opened to average opening of Rs 146 million on 26 October, reached its pinnacle with an impressive Rs 235 million on day two but started to slide thereafter. The movie ended its five-day weekend with a net collection of Rs 803 million with an added advantage coming from 3,300 print release as well as from enhanced admission rates.

The controversy created around the film‘s comparison with Salman Khan‘s Bodyguard, backfired as the campaign based on false figures fails to stand its ground.

Ra.One‘s collections, as the new week opened today, are low and expected with little hope of sustaining.

Meanwhile, both Tell Me O Khuda and Damadamm failed to make any mark with poor or nil audience turn out.

However, Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge remained steady despite dull period. It collected Rs 19 million to take its two week tally to Rs 55.5 million.
Azaan earned a symbolic Rs 5 million with a two week total reaching to Rs 23 million.

Rascals added Rs 9 million to take its three week total to Rs 278 million.
Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster added about Rs 10 million despite all odds to reach a total of Rs 99 million.
