Demonetisation effect: Farhan Akhtar's 'Rock On 2' fails to rock on Box Office collection
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation scheme seems to have impacted Box Office collections of Bollywood's latest release ‘Rock On 2’.
As people preferred spending more time in banks than theatres, this week’s release Rock On 2 suffered heavily on the opening day.
Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Rock On 2’ released in 1700 screens across the nation and it was expected that the film will take an opening of more than 5 crores; but it managed to score only Rs 2-2.5 crores.

There were reports that producers may postpone release of the film but the film released as per schedule and it is too early to claim the overall loss.
As the buying power will restore, the film is expected to do some late business in coming days.
