This is a bad news for Shah Rukh Khan and his film Jab Harry Met Sejal as the movie has failed to grow on 2nd day. In fact, it has dropped on 2nd day. Saturday is the day when most of the growth of the film comes and that decides how big and long the movie will go during its run. With almost similar numbers for JHMS as that of Friday, the signs are telling that the film is struggling big time in theaters.
Jab Harry Met Sejal has collected 15 crore on its Saturday, making its 2 days total 30.25 crore. This is not expected from a Shah Rukh Khans film. By now, the collections should have crossed the 40 crore mark. His previous film Raees has collected 45+ crore in 2 days and it had clashed with Kaabil, proving that JHMS is not getting a good response.
With 3400 screens, the morning occupancy on 2nd day was similar to Friday but the growth didn’t come as evening and night shows were hardly crowded. Even the reviews and audience recommendation for this Imtiaz Ali directorial are negative, eventually witnessing the crowd staying away from its shows.
Now, all eyes are on Sunday collections which need to show massive rise otherwise the fate of the movie is sealed. It also has a Raksha Bandhan holiday on Monday to mint a strong earning but that is also looking tough as its opening weekend itself is dull so far.
Jab Harry Met Sejal also stars Anushka Sharma. It is a love story of a Punjabi tour guide Harry and a Gujarati girl Sejal. Sejal has lost her engagement ring and Harry helps her find it. In the process, they fall in love with each other.
