Hrithik Roshan's "Mohenjo Daro" may have failed to get the expected box office collection on its first weekend, but has managed to cross Rs. 50 crore mark in the worldwide market.
"Mohenjo Daro" was one of the most awaited movies of this year, but the film's box office business has been below expectation. Hrithik had also appeared on the big screen after a long gap. However, even his star power could not help its commercial run.
Nonetheless, the gross worldwide collection of "Mohenjo Daro" crossed Rs. 50 crore by the end of the first weekend. The Ashutosh Gowariker directorial earned around Rs 42 crore (gross) in three days at the Indian box office. Adding to the total collection, "Mohenjo Daro" collected around Rs 20 crore at the overseas market. Thus, the gross worldwide collection of "Mohenjo Daro" stands at around Rs. 62 crore (approx).
As far as overseas market is considered, "Mohenjo Daro" has been performing better in UAE-GCC and USA-Canada. The film opened with an overseas collection of Rs. 6.82 crore of which Rs. 3.15 crore came from UAE-GCC and Rs. 1.57 crore from USA-Canada.
Hrithik's film started with a below expected business of Rs. 8.87 crore at the domestic market, but its box office collection picked up in the weekend. "Mohenjo Daro" collected Rs. 9.60 crore on Saturday and Rs. 12.07 crore on Sunday, taking its total nett collection to Rs. 30.54 and gross collection to Rs. 42 crore at the domestic market by the end of opening weekend.
The period drama has been facing tough competition from Akshay Kumar's "Rustom". Although, "Mohenjo Daro" had released with more screen count than the Akshay-starrer, Hrithik's latest film is behind "Rustom" in the box office run.
