Despite having an average opening weekend at box office, Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal has still managed to enter the list of Highest Opening Weekend Grossers of 2017. It has collected 45.75 crore in its 1st weekend. Considering it an SRK film, trade was expecting a 60+ crore total in weekend but that looked like a far fetched dream after its first day.
Jab Harry Met Sejal has surpassed the opening weekend collections of films like Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Jagga Jasoos and Half Girlfriend.
Baahubali 2, Raees, Kaabil, Tubelight and Jolly LLB 2 are ahead of it. What’s more disappointing is that SRK’s Raees, despite clashing with Kaabil, had collected more than JHMS in first 3 days.
100 crore is impossible for this Imtiaz Ali directorial now and this movie is one of the weakest performers of Shah Rukh Khan in recent times. It is also one of the biggest disappointments of 2017.
Here are Top 10 Highest Opening Weekend Grossers of 2017:
|Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (Hindi)||128|
|Tiger Zinda Hai||114.93|
|Toilet: Ek Prem Katha||51.45|
|Jolly LLB 2||50.46|
|Jab Harry Met Sejal||45.75|
