When a Shah Rukh Khan film releases, the box office numbers are expected to be record breaking or at least massive. But, that doesn’t seem to be the case with his latest romantic film Jab Harry Met Sejal. This Imtiaz Ali directorial witnessed an average opening weekend and couldn’t even manage to cross the 50 crore mark. This pretty much sums up the fate of the movie at box office.
Jab Harry Met Sejal has collected 15.75 crore on its Sunday. The occupancy and footfalls didn’t improve much but at least they improved unlike on Saturday, which had seen a drop. The total of Jab Harry Met Sejal is now 45.75 crore in 3 days.
Here are Jab Harry Met Sejal Opening Weekend Collections:
Friday – 15.25 crore
Saturday – 15 crore
Sunday – 15.75 crore
Total Collections – 45.75 crore
Audience has stayed away from the movie despite it being an SRK movie as reviews and word of mouth for it have been negative. The response from single screens was already dismal but even in multiplexes of metro cities, the footfalls were disappointing on Sunday.
Today is Raksha-Bandhan so there is a partial holiday in the country. However, it still remains to be seen whether it will benefit Jab Harry Met Sejal or not. It is hard to predict because the movie has not performed well in its opening weekend itself.
JHMS won’t even be crossing the 100 crore mark now and it is on the verge on being a flop at box office. Bollywood is going through a struggling phase as not a single big star movie has collected a decent amount in last couple of months.
