Despite taking an average opening of 15.25 crore, Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal has entered the list of Highest Opening Day Movies of 2017. This a how massive fan following is for SRK. Although everyone was hoping for better numbers, all eyes are now on its Saturday and Sunday collections which can turn things around for the film.
The makers took a good decision not to releases JHMS widely as its story didn’t have a mass appeal. With around 3400 screens, it was released in big numbers in metro cities.
However, 15 crore is one of the lowest opening for a Shah Rukh Khan film as he is known to collect 20+ crore and sometimes even beyond that. The reviews for Jab Harry Met Sejal are not good so it is going to affect the footfalls. Even the audience is not much happy with the film and its story.
SRK’s previous film Raees, despite clashing with Kaabil, had collected 20.42 crore. So, you can understand how weakly JHMS is trending.
Here are Top 5 Highest Opening Day Movies of 2017:
Baahubali 2 (Hindi) – 41 crore
Tubelight – 21.15 crore
Raees – 20.42 crore
Jab Harry Met Sejal – 15.25 crore
Jolly LLB 2 – 13.20 crore
