Multi-starrer Rock On 2 has had a slow start at the box office with a collection of Rs 2.02 crore nett on its opening day. The film's day 2 earning also did not witness much growth at the Indian box office.

Starring Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Shashank Arora and Prachi Desai, Rock On 2 failed to impact at the box office in the first 2 days.

Directed by Shujaat Saudagaar, the sequel of Rock On had failed to impress most of the critics and looks like the audience also are not having a positive response to the musical drama.

Early estimates suggest that Rock On collected Rs 2.5 crore (approx) on Saturday, taking its nett 2-day domestic total at Indian box office to a little less than Rs 5 crore. Exact figures are yet to be out.

Although Rock On 2 lacked the required hype around the film, it is also being believed that the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes has affected its business.

In spite of being a solo release, Farhan Akhtar's Rock On 2 could not have impressive box office figures, at least in the opening 2 days. Apart from the demonetisation factor, last two big releases Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay too are running in theatres and that might be another cause of the film's poor opening performance at the box office.

While the original film was much appreciated, Rock On 2 could not match up to the expectations. With no other major release in coming week, it will be interesting to see if the movie shows some growth at the box office.
