Released yesterday the film despite its hype took off to a rather slow start.

Collecting Rs. 6.07 cr Rangoon stands as the fourth highest opening day grosser of 2017. Though the film’s collections do not surpass the collections of previous releases like, the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees that collected Rs. 20.42 cr, the Akshay Kumar starrer Jolly LLB 2 that collected Rs. 14.27 cr and the Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaabil that collected Rs. 10.43 cr, it does manage to overtake the collections of The Shraddha Kapoor starrer Ok Jaanu that collected Rs. 4.08 cr.
