Hrithik Roshan’s pre-historic period-drama Mohenjo Daro becomes a big losing affair for the producers. It is very painful to get this kind of horrendous results at the box office after spending huge investment in a film but this is the truth for Ashutosh Gowariker’s directorial.
On 1st Thursday i.e. the 7th day of Mohenjo Daro, despite the Rakshabandhan Holiday, it has only collected around Rs 4.24 crore and finished its first week to Rs 51.18 crores, which is certainly a big disappointment for the makers.
Akshay Kumar’s Rustom, which was released on the same day has again emerged out as the winner and collected more than double what Mohenjo Daro got on Yesterday. Not a single centre in the country has seen more turn out of the film as compared to Rustom.
Especially in North Indian region, Mohenjo Daro is just thrashed by Rustom and it becomes the biggest flop of the year after Fitoor and Fan. The cost of production of Mohenjo Daro is around Rs 115 crores and with the way it going it will end its lifetime journey at the box office around Rs 65 crores.
One more concern for the makers of Mohenjo Daro is that it had released in more than 3000 screens across India and despite most of the single screen theatres in the country had been occupied by the film, it hasn’t come out as the winner at the box office.
