Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro failed to sparkle at the box office despite the successful actor-director jodi of Hrithik and Ashutosh Gowariker coming together. Mohenjo Daro box office collection on day one stood at Rs 8.8 crore and it is expected to rake in about Rs 10-12 crore on day two.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#MohenjoDaro Fri ₹ 8.87 cr. India biz… Will need to show solid growth to leave a mark!”

Directed by Gowariker, Mohenjo Daro shows Hrithik taking on a man (Kabir Bedi) bent on destroying one of the world’s oldest cities. The film is set during the Indus Valley civilisation and has been made at a massive cost of Rs 100 crore.

Produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Sunita Gowariker for Disney’s UTV Motion Pictures and Ashutosh Gowariker Productions, the period drama also spent Rs 15 crore on promotion. The film has already earned Rs 60 crore from the sale of satellite rights to Star TV and the music rights to T-Series.

Comparing Mohenjo Daro to the other big release — Akshay Kumar’s Rustom — this weekend, Adarsh wrote, “#Rustom starts with a bang… Leads by a big margin… Emerges 4th highest opener of 2016… Fri ₹ 14.11 cr. India biz.”

Mohenjo Daro, which opened on around 2500 screens, was expected to earn around Rs 10 crore on the box office on day one. The film saw Hrithik romancing debutante Pooja Hegde on awe-inspiring sets but fell short of numbers earned by the actor’s last outing in bang Bang which earned Rs 27.54 crore on day 1 at BO.
