In just 13 days of its theatrical run, the film has raked in a whopping Rs 117.78 crore in domestic collections, making it a triumphant addition to Alia Bhatt’s string of recent hits. The global box office numbers tell a similar tale of success, with a worldwide gross collection of Rs 225.2 crore. This milestone also marks a significant achievement, surpassing Ranbir Kapoor’s “Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar,” establishing “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani” as a formidable contender.
Despite facing competition from Hollywood releases like “Oppenheimer” and “Barbie,” the film captured the audience’s attention and secured a strong foothold at the box office. The initial slow start was quickly overshadowed by glowing reviews and positive word-of-mouth, turning the film into a genuine crowd-pleaser. Predictions point towards a potential lifetime collection of Rs 150 crore, solidifying its place as one of the standout Hindi films of the year.
A Glimpse Of The Story
The film, shot across vibrant locations including Mumbai, New Delhi, Russia, and Jammu & Kashmir, follows a delightful romantic escapade. The chemistry between Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt has struck a chord with the audience, resulting in a steady occupancy rate of 15.37% on August 9.
Awaiting The Next Challenge
As “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani” enters its third weekend, it faces new contenders at the box office—Rajinikanth’s “Jailer,” Sunny Deol’s “Gadar 2,” and Akshay Kumar’s “OMG 2.” While challenges lie ahead, the film’s resilience and enduring popularity hint at a promising continued run.
A Stellar Combination
The film’s success adds another feather to Alia Bhatt’s cap. Who has been on a winning streak with recent hits like “Gangubai Kathiawadi” and “Brahmastra.” For Ranveer Singh, this marks a much-awaited success after a string of lackluster performances in “83,” “Jayeshbhai Jordaar,” and “Cirkus.” “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani” not only embraces the power of love on screen. But also captures the hearts of audiences. Therefore setting the box office ablaze with its impressive numbers. As the film faces new contenders, its steady run and unwavering popularity promise to make it a memorable addition to Bollywood’s 2023 successes.
