Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkumar Rao-starrer Roohi was one of the first major films to release after the Centre allowed cinema halls to function at full capacity in the country. The horror comedy film managed to rake in Rs 17.50 crore in the first week of its release. The film was released on Mahashivratri i.e March 11.
Gross collection of Rs 17.50 crore is a respectable number in view of the COVID-19 outbreak scenario in the country, explained box office analyst Taran Adarsh. After registering high numbers during the weekend, Roohi's daily collections have been on a downward slope during the weekdays. Adarsh provided a day-by-day breakdown of Roohi's domestic earnings.
