The box office collection of "Roy" might not be as expected, but the first week earning is the third highest of 2015. Surprisingly, "MSG: The Messenger" has the highest six days earning, beating Akshay Kumar's "Baby" record.
Trade analysts were expecting "Roy" to collect good numbers from its box office run and end the dry spell. But instead the collection dropped, making it an average grosser.
In one week, the film starring Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles has minted only ₹41.77 crore.
"#Roy Fri 10.40 cr, Sat 11.16 cr, Sun 7.12 cr, Mon 3.65 cr, Tue 3.76 cr, Wed 2.92 cr, Thu 2.76 cr. Total: ₹ 41.77 cr. India biz," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The film's performance might have been average, but for the producers it has turned out to be a profitable film. The producers invested ₹40 crore to make the movie and they have earned the cost with just first week run.
Meanwhile, "MSG: The Messenger" film, which was released along with "Roy" has taken the lead at the box offices in India. The film has performed way better than Akshay Kumar's "Baby" and "Roy" in India, according to reports.
Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's film has earned ₹89.29 crore in just six days of its release, according to The Indian Express.
Keeping in mind the six days collection, the film might have reportedly earned more than 4 crore on seventh day thus beating the lifetime collection record of "Baby".
"Baby" was the highest grosser film of 2015, but if "MSG" collections are anything to go by then it has become the biggest grosser film of this year.
