Raksha Bandhan Box Office Collection: Akshay Kumar's latest theatrical release film had a huge setback at the box office. Touted as one of the most anticipated and big films of the year, Raksha Bandhan failed to make a mark at the ticket window. The family drama highlighting the bond of a brother and sister was released on the festive occasion, but it missed gaining an audience at the theaters.
Raksha Bandhan Lifetime Box Office Earnings
According to a report in Box Office India, "Raksha Bandhan will end its run with lifetime business of 45 crore nett as its run comes to and end this week." "The performance overseas is also horrible as it failed to collect in any market. The saving grace is the revenue for digital and satellite which will save the day in terms of economics for another film gone all wrong. The combined business of the Raksha Bandhan and Laal Singh Chaddha on Rakhi / Independence Week releases will hardly be 105 crore and that is with a number of big holidays. This does look the lowest point ever for Hindi cinema at the box office. The question now is there a bigger low to come or this is as worst as it gets. Both films had that dated look despite the big stars and both films seemed more for home viewing rather than cinemas so the fate of the films is not surprising. The surprise was how fast they went out."
