Rocky aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani made $4.20 million during the course of one weekend overseas. The global gross was Rs. 87 crores when combined with the Rs. 52.50 crores earned in India.
Rocky aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani had a successful weekend at the foreign box office, earning approximately $4.20 million (Rs. 34.50 crores). The film made an estimated Rs. 87 crores throughout the course of its global weekend when added to the Rs. 52.50 crores it earned in India. Depending on whether actuals place the first weekend over or under Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, it will either be the second or third highest of the year.
It seemed highly possible that the movie would have made less than $4 million from where it began on Friday, but it had a really strong weekend with several cities seeing increases from Saturday to Sunday, which helped it over the $4 million barrier. Occupancies were higher than collections would indicate in some locations, and this likely contributed to a better trend owing to spillover, which might have benefited stronger promotion for the movie. The movie is currently in a strong position to hit the $10 million milestone for its whole run, which has been extremely rare in recent years with only two Hindi films managing to get there in the last three years.
With approximately $1.70 million throughout the weekend, North America provided the most support for the movie. On Sunday, the movie remained practically unchanged from Saturday, which is very encouraging for legs. An estimated $1.10 million was made in the Middle East, with the UAE performing particularly well on Saturday and Sunday. With a weekend haul of £375K, the UK fared fairly well and has a chance to surpass $1 million overall. For quite some time, the UK market has been in decline; you can learn more about it here. Rocky Rani would put on a strong performance if she could surpass Brahmastra’s £1 million milestone in that area, which saw big figures in most markets.
In addition to directing some of the biggest Hindi film hits like Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, My Name is Khan, and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, director Karan Johar has an impressive track record abroad. Given how the Bollywood overseas business has struggled since CoVID, the release of Rocky aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani adds to that.
Bollywood romantic comedy family drama Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, commonly known as RRKPK, is directed by Karan Johar. The movie, which was made by Dharma Productions and Viacom18 Studios, stars Dharmendra, Alia Bhatt, Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi, and Ranveer Singh.
