Mohenjo Daro Box-Office: First flop for Hrithik Roshan since Guzaarish

Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro failed to set the cash registers ringing as the film made just around Rs 50 crore in its opening week.

The four-day extended weekend helped the period drama sustain a decent level, however, as Catch had predicted, there was a 75% drop in the collections on Tuesday because of a not-so-favourable word of mouth. There was a marginal growth in the collections on Thursday because of Raksha Bandhan holiday, but it made no difference to the film's fate.

Amongst all the territories, the Ashutosh Gowariker-directorial fared the best in the southern markets like Andhra Pradesh, Chennai, Mysore and Kerala.

Day Wise Collections:

  • Opening Weekend (4 days): Rs 40.90 crore
  • Tuesday: Rs 3.00 crore
  • Wednesday: Rs 2.75 crore
  • Thursday: Rs 3.35 crore (Estimate)
  • Total: Rs 50.00 crore (Estimate)

Mohenjo Daro is the first flop for Hrithik Roshan since Guzaarish (2010). Post Guzaarish, Roshan had five releases and here's how they fared:

Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobara: Hit

Agneepath: Super Hit

Krrish 3: Blockbuster

Bang Bang: Above Average

Mohenjo Daro: Flop

The film has been discontinued from major screens in India and is now looking to end its run at the Box Office with collections close to Rs 60 crore. Mohenjo Daro has been made on a budget of 120 crore inclusive of print and publicity.
