Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani
Karan Johar-directed ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani’ has made ₹27.15 crore at the domestic box office in two days, the makers of the movie said Sunday.e
The Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer was released in theatres on Friday.
“The celebrations of love get bigger & louder at the box office - your prem for #RockyAurRaniKiiPremKahaani is unstoppable!" Johar's banner Dharma Productions said on Twitter.
According to Dharma Productions, “Rocky Aur Rani..." collected ₹16.05 crore on the second day after its release, bringing up its total earnings from ₹11.10 crore to ₹27.15 crore.
The film follows the love story of ‘Rocky' and ‘Rani', who belong to contrasting backgrounds and cultures. It also stars veteran actors Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi.
As a love story of a Punjabi man and a Bengali woman, ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani' plays with stereotypes only to later break them, said writer Ishita Moitra, who believes the film is all about “falling in love with the differences" between people.
The family entertainer follows the love story of Rocky Randhawa (Ranveer Singh) and Rani Chatterjee (Alia Bhatt), who belong to contrasting backgrounds and cultures.
“It is about celebrating your differences, it's a shout-out to inclusivity. There are many reasons why we hate someone or judge others, but it's about rising above those differences, accepting each other, and living with love. We were playing with the same stereotypes.
“In the film, no one is perfect. Like, this (culture) is a stereotype but when you invert it, you dig deep, you fall in love with the differences... Eventually, they stand for each other, they rise above those (things). Everybody understands there's no perfect community, perfect person or perfect love. You have to first make the stereotypes to break them," Moitra, also belongs to a Bengali household, told PTI in an interview.
The writer, whose dialogue credits include ‘Shakuntala Devi', ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain' and ‘Four More Shots Please!', said Johar's brief was to keep the story “relevant and entertaining".

AP Dhillon Shares Cryptic Post Amid Shubh India Tour Controversy
AP Dhillon has shared a cryptic post amid the ongoing controversy surrounding Canada-based singer and rapper Shubh, whose Still Rollin tour now stands cancelled in India. Dhillon's post comes hours after Shubh issued a public apology for sharing a distorted image of India's flag on social media.
Dhillon didn't address the controversy directly, but requested people to not spread hate. He also spoke about how over the years it's become difficult for artists to stay focused on their craft as “someone, somewhere, is going to spin the narrative to their liking and create more division.”
“I try to stay out of all the social mania as it is clear to me that regardless of what I say or do, it is a lost cause… I try to be mindful of everyone's sentiments but it's gotten to a point where we have to second and triple guess our every move due to the fear of unintentionally fueling even more division,” Dhillon wrote on his Instagram Story.
The ‘Brown Munde' hitmaker continued, “Special interest and political groups constantly use our public image as a chess piece to further their agenda while we are just trying to make art that helps people on an individual level, regardless of their color, race, religion, nationality, gender, etc. Spread love not hate. Let's start thinking for ourselves and not let hateful influences program our beliefs. We are ALL one. Let's not let man made social constructs divide us. Division has gotten us to this point but unity is the key to the future.”
Canada-based Punjabi singer Shubhneet Singh, popularly known by his stage name Shubh, on Thursday expressed his disappointment after his India tour was cancelled following allegations of his support for Khalistan.
In a lengthy Instagram post on Thursday, Shubh said he was “extremely disheartened” by the cancellation of the tour. Reacting to the controversy, Shubh clarified, “My intent in resharing that post on my story was only to pray for Punjab as there were reports of electricity and internet shutdowns throughout the state. There was no other thought behind it, and I definitely didn't intend to hurt anyone's sentiments.”

When Thalapathy Vijay Encouraged Atlee To Give His Life To Jawan Published 23 minutes ago
Atlee is currently riding high on the success of the Bollywood blockbuster Jawan, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Nayanthara in the lead roles. While the director is well known for his collaborations with South Indian superstar Thalapathy Vijay, he recently opened up about the actor's reaction to him working with King Khan. In an interview with Hindustan Times, the filmmaker shared that the opportunity to work with SRK was like a dream come true moment for him. Atlee shared that initially, even the Master star couldn't believe him, but later, he encouraged the director to pour his heart and soul into the project.
The filmmaker recalled, “When Shah Rukh sir asked me to make a film with him, it was like a lifetime opportunity for any director. I was very happy, I said yes. Then I went to Vijay sir and told him. He said, ‘Are you serious? He came to you?' I said he did. He said, ‘Give your life to it'.”
“I learnt a lot from Khan sir, by being patient, getting everything right, taking the film to the next level. Shah Rukh sir has taught me to raise the bar. My next film will have even better energy and we'll make something bigger than Jawan,” Atlee added.
Further, the director mentioned that initially, he thought of creating a typical romantic film with SRK. However, the superstar expressed his desire to be a part of a project that fit Atlee's unique style and vision. He wanted to explore something different that he hadn't attempted before. This pushed the filmmaker to create a new concept and storyline that would align with his own creative world.
Meanwhile, in an earlier interview with Siddharth Kannan, the Bigil director spoke about the potential collaboration between, Thalapathy Vijay and Shah Rukh Khan and shared that both actors had expressed genuine interest in working together on a project. Initially, Atlee thought they might be saying this as a birthday gift to him. However, the following day, Vijay confirmed his commitment to the project, while Khan, who was present during this conversation, also shared his eagerness to collaborate and asked if they were serious about making a film together.
Jawan is continuing its remarkable run at the global box office, having recently crossed the milestone of Rs 800 Crore in worldwide earnings. In India, the action-packed drama is rapidly approaching the Rs 700 Crore mark, while its overseas collection has collected Rs 295 Crore.
