Hrithik Roshan's "Mohenjo Daro" is struggling at the box office, with its per day collection being very average. The big budget movie has crashed at the Indian box office during its second week, having collected just Rs. 3.88 crore over the weekend.
"Mohenjo Daro" has completed its 10 day-run at the box office but the film's earnings are quite disappointing. After having collected Rs. 8.87 crore on its opening day, the Hrithik-starrer had picked up on its first weekend but its business witnessed stiff fall after the first Monday.
Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, "Mohenjo Daro" had earned Rs. 51.18 crore net at the domestic market by the end of its first week. It suffered a major fall in its collection over the weekdays, followed by even worse business over the second weekend.
"Mohenjo Daro" collected just Rs. 3.88 crore in the last three days, taking its 10-day Indian box office collection to Rs. 55.06 crore net. Revealing the day-wise break-up of the film's second weekend earning, Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#MohenjoDaro crashes in Weekend 2... [Week 2] Fri 1.05 cr, Sat 1.28 cr, Sun 1.55 cr. Weekend 2: 3.88 cr. Total: 55.06 cr. India biz [sic]."
In the overseas market, "Mohenjo Daro" earned Rs. 26.20 crore by the end of its second weekend, taking its total 10-day worldwide collection to Rs. 81.26 crore. However, the film has crossed Rs. 100 crore mark at the worldwide market if its gross collection is taken into consideration. The film's gross worlwide earning over 10 day stands at Rs. 102.67, of which Rs. 76.47 came from the Indian market.
It has been reported that the much-hyped movie showed the best performance in the UAE, GCC and Pakistan, as far as overseas market is concerned. Its overseas earning fell drastically too, after it minted Rs. 19.01 crore (approx) by the end of its first extended four-day weekend.
"#MohenjoDaro – OVERSEAS – Total after Weekend 2: $ 3.9 million [26.20 cr]. Some markets yet to report...Best in UAE + GCC and Pakistan [sic]," trade analyst Adarsh tweeted. With the second weekend collection being so low, "Mohenjo Daro" is likely to fade away at the box office in the coming weekdays; limiting its lifetime net domestic collection to around Rs. 60 crore. While the film failed to receive positive reviews from critics, tough competition from Akshay Kumar's "Rustom" added to its downfall.
