‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani,’ starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh, has now been likened to ‘Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar’s’ milestone. At the box office, the picture is competing with ‘Barbenheimer,’ which has outperformed predictions in India.
Rocky & Rani Kii On July 28, Prem Kahaani was released. Karan Johar, the director, makes his directorial debut in his 25th year. Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh, who were last seen in the hit film Gully Boys, appear in the film.
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani has grossed 4.10 crores in ticket sales countrywide, excluding restricted seats. According to Koimoi, this figure includes the sale of nearly 1.15 lakh tickets, making it a notable feat for a Bollywood film in the post-pandemic age. Notably, this sum exceeds Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar’s Day 1 advance booking total of 3.60 crores gross.
Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar earned a total of 15.73 crores from its gross start of 3.60 crores, making it the fourth greatest Bollywood opener behind Pathaan (57 crores), Adipurush (37.25 crores – Hindi), and Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan (15.81 crores), according to Koimoi.
The picture starring Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, on the other hand, profited from the Holi festival, which contributed to its successful opening. The focus now goes to Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani to see whether it can match the 15.73 crores earned by Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, helmed by Luv Ranjan.
Rocky & Rani Kii Prem Kahaani faces off against Barbenheimer, which has outperformed all expectations at the Indian box office. Barbie has made 27.50 crore in the first seven days, whereas Oppenheimer has made 73.15 crore in the same time frame.

“Ranveer, Alia shine bright like diamonds in KJo’s return to form,” India Today writes, while Times Now says, “With influences from the golden era of Bollywood, Karan Johar creates a splendid cinematic experience, using space, pauses, and silences to enhance storytelling.”
“Jaya Bachchan is enthralling. Her dominating presence, authoritative demeanor, and frigid looks – this is a standout performance that will be remembered by moviegoers. “Shabana Azmi is fantastic; she delivers a controlled performance without going overboard in any sequence,” noted Bollywood Hungama film critic Taran Adarsh.
