Box Office Collection Day 6
As per the media reports, Rocketry saw growth on Day 5 due to favorable word of mouth. The moviegoers are also demanding tax-free status for the film in the country. Going by the trend it will stay steady on Tue, as per our estimation, it will collect in the range of Rs 1.25 to 1.35 crores** in India on Day 6 (Tue).
Having said that, it will be a tough road ahead for Maddy’s film as this week’s release films will possibly create a dent in its collections.
Rocketry is an excellent picture. Let me appreciate Mr Madhavan for directing & producing ISRO Scientist “Nambi”. You made a great risk in bring the story of a patriot & intelligent scientist Dr Nambi” to lime light .
