Shah Rukh Khan’s much awaited film Jab Harry Met Sejal is released today and everyone knows the kind of buzz and hype it is carrying. The advance booking for the movie was decent and its morning occupancy is also good. Multiplexes are witnessing a good numbers of footfalls.
Jab Harry Met Sejal is overall witnessing an occupancy of around 35-40% on its opening day. Kolkata, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Delhi and south regions are positive but this is not expected from a Shah Rukh Khan film. One hopes for massive footfalls for his movies, considering his gigantic fan following. Obviously, the content of Jab Harry Met Sejal is more urban so the appeal is not going to be universal. Single screens theaters are not that impressive for Jab Harry Met Sejal.
Afternoon shows’ fill rate for JHMS is looking in the same range as morning shows. Multiplexes are going to be major contributors for JHMS. One is hoping that the occupancy will grow upto 60% in afternoon shows.
Jab Harry Met Sejal has got around 3500 screens in India so it can mint enormous amount of money if the occupancy rises to 70-80%. Evening and night shows will definitely become packed and so is expected from the weekend. It will need good reviews and word of mouth to sustain and collect a good total on its opening day.
Keep following us as we will updating the occupancy and first day collection trends in our subsequent articles.
