Box Office: R... Rajkumar is below average
Shahid Kapoor and Sonakhi Sinha starrer R.... Rajkumar did not get any takers in multiplex theatres but had a decent run in single screen theatres.
In its opening weekend, the film has fared below average at the box office and will find it difficult to sustain through the week.
The week's other release Club 60 found some appreciation from a section of moviegoers but lack of promotion and star value has marred whatever prospects it had.
