John Abraham’s ‘Rocky Handsome’ mints Rs 16.12 cr on 1st weekend

John Abraham starrer movie ‘Rocky Handsome’ had a fairly good run at the box office in the three days following its release. By its first weekend, the action-thriller managed to collect over Rs 16 crore, including the paid preview held on Thrusday, a day before its release.

The film which released on Friday, March 25 collected Rs 5.29 crore. It raked in another Rs 4.83 crore on day two, Saturday and Rs 4.13 crore on third day, Sunday. The paid preview on March 24 brought in Rs 1.84 crore, taking the film’s first weekend collection to Rs 16.12 crore.

Noted trade analyst Taran Adarsh posted the film’s collection on his Twitter timeline. “#RockyHandsome Thu previews 1.77 cr, Fri 5.39 cr, Sat 4.83 cr, Sun 4.13 cr. Total: ? 16.12 cr. India biz,” he tweeted.

Directed by Nishikant Kamat, ‘Rocky Handsome’ has received mixed response, but has been appreciated for its high-octane action sequences and never-seen-before hand-to-hand combat scenes. The film benefitted from the Good Friday holiday, but also faced competition from Hollywood flick ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and also from the romantic drama ‘Kapoor & Sons’ which released the previous week on March 18.

‘Rocky Handsome’ is an adaptation of 2010 Korean film ‘The Man from Nowhere’ and also stars Shruti Haasan, Natalia Kaur, Nishikant Kamat, Sharad Kelkar and child artiste Diya Chalwad.
