Mani Ratnam’s Raavan has been rejected outright by the audience worldwide. The film has collected Rs 24 crores in India and crashed completely after average business over the last weekend.
Breakup of collections
- Weekend (Friday to Sunday) – 17 crores
- Weedays (Monday to Thursday) – 7 crores
Raavan should be out of most theaters in the next 2 weeks and the final all India nett is expected to be somewhere around the 32 – 35 crore mark, which would be hugely disappointing.
In comparison, the other Big Pictures release, Kites, which was also rejected universally did much better business (close to 40 crores) in its first week.
