Akshay Kumar starrer Raksha Bandhan was never to score in multiplexes as subject seems too dated and treatment felt cliche. On top of that clash with Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha made it split its earning by at least 25%.
Film didn’t open well and then it failed to grow on day one. Film collected poor 8.20 cr nett on day one which was actor’s lowest opener of year behind Bachchan Pandey and Samrat Prithviraj. Film received mixed reviews and urban markets were always suppose to be repulsive for this so growth didn’t happen despite poor day one.
Film collected 6.40 cr nett on day two which was drop of 23%. Film was expected to jump big today as holiday affect has kicked in but film failed to do so. As per early trends, film should collect 6.51 cr nett which is still poor.
Film has 3 – day total of 21.51 cr nett which is still below par. Film needs big jump in next two days for any chance of decent lifetime total.
Film was very poor in overseas market with roughly 51 lacs on day one and will struggle to cross 2.50 cr over weekend.
