Updated Box Office Numbers for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
For a Shahrukh Khan movie, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi does not seem to be having a great time at the box office.
Yes, we know that on Sunday we said that Shahrukh Khan’s latest crap-show Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi was storming the U.S. box office. But keep in mind that the initial $1.25 million figure was based on studio estimates.
Today, we’ve the actual full three-day weekend numbers from Boxofficemojo and the numbers are significantly lower.
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi grossed only $911,771 at the U.S. box office for the opening weekend (December 12-14, 2008) as against the studio estimate of $1.25 million.
And the actual gross numbers show that Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is not doing that well at the box office compared to SRK’s earlier movies like Om Shanti Om, Hrithik Roshan’s Jodhaa Akbar or Akshay Kumar’s Singh is Kinng.
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi had no competition and yet could gross only $911,771.
Please look at below UPDATED table (reflecting actual gross) to see how Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has fared compared to other prominent Bollywood movies at the U.S. box office for the opening weekend:
An outrageous insult to the loyal Bollywood fans (as if a wife can’t recognize her husband without his moustache), Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi takes Bollywood to a new low.Â
Since Shahrukh Khan is the superstar of Bollywood (a fact this clown never ceases to preen about), if his movies don’t gross even a million dollars in the opening weekend, the signs are ominous for the ultimate fate of this movie. Very ominous.
Since Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is unadulterated garbage, we find it hard to believe this piece of trash will generate any positive word of mouth.
Plus with Aamir Khan’s Ghajini expected to release on December 24, Shahrukh Khan and Yash Raj have only a short window of opportunity to capitalize on the buzz, if at all there is any, for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
