The two day Rangoon collection totalled to 13 crores. The film got little profit out of the investment but could be a major setback on Shahid carrer if not able to mint out the overall production budget.
Marketing strategy for Rangoon collection was poor. The primary campaign just started a week before the actual release, which was a disaster in itself. Apart from that there were no actual superhit songs in the film which could boost the earnings a lot.
The overall response from overseas market was below the par level. Despite having a large following among international audience, Shahid Kapoor was not able to mint out the best out of it.
