Filmmaker Karan Johar’s family entertainer, ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’, has had an exceptional response in the UK and overseas markets in its debut weekend, collecting around $4 million despite Barbie and Oppenheimer dominating theaters. While competing with these Hollywood releases for screens, the film is still proving to be highly successful in cinemas around the world.
As a result of exceptionally strong ticket sales, ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’ is on course to outperform ‘Tu Jhooti Main Makkaar’ and ‘Jugjugg Jeeyo’, two earlier releases of the same genre, within week one of its theatrical release.
The major markets’ approximate collections are:
United Kingdom – ?375,000
US / Canada – $1,800,000
Gulf – $1,050,000
Australia – A$410,000
‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’ has the added attraction of hugely popular and accomplished lead actors, Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh, alongside veteran artists, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi, collaborating with filmmaking maestro, Karan Johar, in this family-friendly genre.
Viacom18 Studios and Dharma Productions’ ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’, produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta, is in cinemas now.
