Shujaat Saudagar’s recently released musical drama ‘Rock On 2,’ which stars Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Prachi Desai and Shashank Arora in lead roles, has failed drastically at the box office in domestic as well as in overseas market. The film which is a sequel of the 2008 hit film ‘Rock on’, was unable to attract the audience in the theatres.
The film being a musical failed to attract the viewers as the music, which is supposed to be the biggest highlight of a film was a major disappointment. Apart from that, the film had a Really boring script and average performance. Arjun Rampal was yet again the best part of the film.
The film which released on November 11, have several reasons behind the film’s failure. The demonetization by Modi Government of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes played an important role in film’s poor show at the ticket windows as well. The film failed to show the growth in collections since then. The film collected Rs 2.50 crore nett approx (25 million) on Saturday and continued with the same trend on Sunday too with Rs. 2.50 crore nett approx. (25 million) The further collections of the film have dropped abruptly. The film did a business of Rs 1.25 crore nett approx (12 million) on Monday and dropped further with Rs 90 Lakhs (9 million) nett approx on Tuesday. The total collection of the film stands at Rs. 8.95 crores (89.5 million) nett approx.
From here on, the film has very little chance to take the collections to a respectable figure.
