Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro saw some signs of life at the box office on Sunday after disappointing results on the first two days.
A period drama with the Indus Valley civilisation as its backdrop, the film’s box–office collections on Friday and Saturday were far from impressive, not living up to the expectations. The big budget Mohenjo Daro estimated box office collection on day two, Saturday, stood at Rs 9.6 crore while it earned Rs 8.8 crore on Friday. Sunday saw the film reaching Rs 12.07 crore.
A trade analyst tweeted, “#MohenjoDaro witnessed growth on Sat and Sun, but needs solid numbers on Mon to leave a mark… Also needs to be consistent on weekdays…”
Mohenjo Daro has so far earned Rs 30.54 crore in India biz. He had tweeted earlier, “#MohenjoDaro Fri ₹ 8.87 cr. India biz… Will need to show solid growth to leave a mark!”
Directed by Gowariker, Mohenjo Daro shows Hrithik taking on a man (Kabir Bedi) bent on destroying one of the world’s oldest cities. The film is set during the Indus Valley civilisation and has been made at a massive cost of Rs 100 crore.
The period drama also spent Rs 15 crore on promotion while earned. Rs 60 crore from the sale of satellite rights and the music rights.
Backed by Disney, Mohenjo Daro is releasing on about 2300-2500 screen.
Hrithik can be seen in a movie after two long years. His last film Bang Bang with Katrina Kaif managed to earn Rs 27.54 crore on day 1 at the box office. – CINEWS
