“Marching towards $17 million as the film approaches its fourth weekend, ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’ has truly connected with audiences and found its value at the box office. Its impressive numbers can also be attributed to overseas distributor, Moviegoers Entertainment, that has continued to secure screens for the film while up against major Hollywood releases in the form of ‘Barbie’ and ‘Oppenheimer’ and despite other major Indian releases, ‘Gadar 2’, ‘Jailer’ and ‘OMG2’,” a spokesperson for the UK distributors said.
‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’ has proved a hit with diaspora audiences as a quintessential Karan Johar entertainer with a social message, combined with stellar performances by its star leads – Bhatt and Singh, alongside veteran actors, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi.
