When a Bollywod movie grosses less than a Harman Baweja film in the opening weekend at the box office, there are only two words in the English language to describe its miserable fate: EPIC DISASTER.
Ranbir Kapoor’s Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year has fared miserably at the U.S. box office.
So bad that even Harman Baweja’s What’s Your Rashee had a higher opening gross ($169,005).
There can be no bigger shame for Rocket Singh’s main star Ranbir Kapoor and the movie’s producer Yash Raj Films.
In the December 11-13, 2009 opening weekend at the U.S. box office, Rocket Singh could manage only a pitiful $164,649.
Just in case you are wondering, Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films is credited as the producer of Rocket Singh.
Rocket Singh, which came in at No-25 for the December 11-13 weekend, opened in 70 theaters giving it an average gross of $2,352.
