Rock On 2 managed to garner only a dingy profit on its second day of box office and this gloomy run continued for the third day as well. Apparently, this Farhan Akhtar and Shraddha Kapoor starrer got badly hit by the demonetization policy of Central Government. More than anything, everyone is blaming it on the country wide demonetization that has clearly led to the failure of drawing enough audience in the theaters all across the country because of lack of 100 rupees bill.
Well, Shujaat Saudagar’s film Rock On 2 literally had a lot of stars in the movie such as Shraddha Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Purab Kohli, Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai and Shashank Arora, so there was apparently nothing less on the starry quotient. But as per the majority who have watched the movie, this sequel of Rock On has failed to deliver the same blockbuster effect and hence, the success rate has been comparatively very low.

On a brighter note, Rock On 2 has a really long way to go since it has only been 3 days since the release and we can still expect a reasonable box office collection. But to come close to its own prequel, it still has a long journey to embark upon.
First Day Box office Collection of Rock On 2: Rs 2.02 Crores
Second Day Box office Collection of Rock On 2: Rs 2.25-2.50 Crores (Estimated Collection)
Day 3 Box office Collection of Rock On 2: Rs 3 to 3.50 Crores (Estimated Collection)

Producer Ritesh Sidhwani says, “ If Excel Entertainment had prior intimation about the decision it would have pushed the release date of the movie.”
“People are busy queueing up outside the banks and even if they are able to get the new Rs. 2000 note they are not able to get the change for it which is affecting the overall collection of the film. If we had any clue about the decision we would have definitely pushed the release date,” Ritesh told PTI.
