Roy 3rd Day (Sunday) Collection : Roy has a decent Sunday at Box Office with collection of around 8 crores
Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez starer romantic thriller Roy was released on Friday along with MSG -Messenger of God. As predicted by us, the movie got off to a decent start at domestic Box Office. We predicted that the movie would collect around 8 to 10 crores on opening day. We are once again bang on with our predictions as the movie has collected 10.4 crores on its opening day.
Roy has a decent opening weekend at domestic Box Office. Despite receiving poor reviews from critics and audience, the movie showed a decent growth on its second day (Saturday). The collection on second day saw growth because of Valentine Day Holiday and Ranbir Kapoor’s fan following. Roy collected 11.16 crores on its second day at Box Office.
On Sunday, the movie remain strong and collected around 8 crores despite India-Pakistan world cup match. Roy is now the second highest opening weekend grosser of 2015 with collection of around 31 crores. Baby remains the highest opening weekend grosser with collection of 36.07 crores. Roy is running strong specially in metros and multiplexes like Delhi, Gurgaon and Mumbai.
Roy was one of the most anticipated movies of 2015 because of presence of Ranbir Kapoor who was absent from big screen for almost one year. Ranbir Kapoor fans were eagerly waiting for the movie release and it seems a driving factor for big opening at Box Office. Super hit songs and Valentine fever also provided boost to the first two days collection.

Though the movie got a decent opening at Box Office,the reviews from public and critics has been poor. Most of the critics have thrashed the movie stating it as a dull romantic thriller and a slow torture. It would be interesting to see how the movie performs on coming days following such poor reviews. The real test for Roy will start from Monday. The performance on week days will decide the Box Office fate of the movie.
Roy is made on a budget of 40 crores (Including Printing and Advertisement cost). The movie should recover its budget quite easily and it would be interesting to see if Roy become the first hit of 2015 which Bollywood is looking for.
Stay tuned for more Box Office collection and updates.
