John Abraham's espionage thriller Romeo Akbar Walter has been in theatres for a little over a week now and so far it has performed decently at the box office. Co-starring Mouni Roy, Jackie Shroff, and Sikander Kher, the film released in theatres on April 5 and got off to good start despite garnering mixed reviews. The spy thriller, directed by Robby Grewal, did well over the first weekend as well but on Monday it saw a sharp dip in its collection and since then RAW has been collecting in the range of Rs 2 crore on weekdays. However, yesterday, the film's collection went down further. Romeo Akbar Walter Box Office Collection Day 6: John Abraham and Mouni Roy's Spy Thriller Holds Up Well on Wednesday
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the microblogging site Twitter a while back and announced the updated figures. He wrote, ''#RomeoAkbarWalter has limited days to add to the total, since #Kalank arrives on Wed... [Week 2] Fri 1.25 cr. Total: ₹ 34.29 cr. India biz. #RAW.''
A report in Bofficeindia.com also stated, ''Romeo Akbar Walter had low collections of 1.25 crore nett apprx on its second Friday though a 30% drop from Thursday is reasonable. There were no major releases which enabled this film to get some collections on the second Friday but it really needed to take more advantage and to be closer to the Thursday number.''

While Romeo Akbar Walter has failed to really get cash registers ringing at the Indian box office, John has two more films lined up for release this year. The actor will first be seen in Batla House and then in Anees Bazmee's comic caper Pagalpanti.
