‘RA.One’ fails to beat Bodyguard’s opening week box office collection

Superstar Shahrukh Khan’s RA.One released amidst the Diwali fiesta in both 2D and 3D. After SRK’s rigorous promotions and all the hype about the film, it managed to gather about Rs 170 crore worldwide at the box office in the opening weekend. In spite of releasing the film in more than 4000 screens worldwide and hiking up ticket prices, the film still falls short when compared to SRK’s arch rival, Salman Khan’s Bodyguard BO opening collection. Trade analysts however are willing to give the SRK superhero flick the benefit of doubt and wait till Monday before giving out the final verdict of the film’s fate. They expect the film to pick up post Monday and the real figures will then be calculated. But theatre owners are doubtful that the sales will pick up. In spite of releasing during the festival season, the film didn’t do as expected. So will SRK’s RA.One cross Bodyguard’s benchmark? Only time will tell!
