Rowdy Rathore may enter 100 crore club!!

The Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi Sinha-starrer Rowdy Rathore may make its place in the Rs. 100 crore club in the coming weekends, according to trade expert Komal Nahta. He says, “Single-screen cinemas are going break's over Rowdy Rathore. It’s a straight blockbuster.”
Trade analysts says Rowdy Rathore is a Akshay kumar's Dabangg. I call it a wow-dy weekend for Rathore. Akshay lived the role and Prabhudheva knows his audience well. With Rs. 15.1 cr (Friday), Rs. 14.7 cr (Saturday) and Rs. 18.5 cr (Sunday), the film has netted Rs. 48.5 cr this weekend.” Two-tier cities like Kanpur, Nagpur, Indore, Jaipur, Udaipur and Lucknow recorded a collection with an average of 85 per cent in single-screens.

Adarsh rubbishes the film’s negative reviews, saying, “People want entertainment and this film offers it. They rubbished Sholay (1975) and called Hum Aap Ke Hai Kaun...!(1994). What matters is how much money the film is making.” 

Rowdy Rathore was released in 3,000 screens in India and overseas. Made at a budget of Rs. 45 cr, the film had recovered its money when its  satellite, music and home video rights were sold for Rs. 35 cr, Rs. 7 cr and Rs. 3 cr respectively. And with overseas collections of Rs. 11 cr over the weekend in addition, this is definitely the biggest solo release of his career.
