It’s a known fact that Shah Rukh Khan has a massive fan following in overseas markets too, especially in UAE and UK. That was evident when his film Jab Harry Met Sejal did well at overseas box office even when it is struggling in India.
In its opening weekend, Jab Harry Met Sejal has collected around $7 million which amount to 44.60 crore. These are really strong numbers despite the movie getting panned by most of the critics.
The best figures have comes from UAE, US and UK. This is why SRK is often called as the global star. In India, its opening weekend total is disappointing 45.75 crore. One was expecting 60+ crore for the movie due to SRK brand name and its huge buzz.
JHMS’s India gross total is 68 crore and with 44 crore from international markets, its worldwide total has gone past 100 crore, standing at 112 crore.
Jab Harry Met Sejal is on course to become a flop. It has a big budget and it will be extremely difficult for it recover its costs. The film is one of the weakest performers of Shah Rukh in recent times.
It is impossible for the movie to even cross the 100 crore milestone at domestic market. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, it also stars Anushka Sharma. It is a love story of a Punjabi tour guide and a Gujarati girl.
