Couple of weeks back released Jab Harry Met Sejal has passed it’s second week on a disastrous note. From a long time superstar Shahrukh Khan is seeking for a successful venture and the same is going with director Imtiaz Ali. So what else could have been expected from their collaboration?
Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer romantic drama Jab Harry Met Sejal was released on August 4 worldwide with huge initial buzz due to solid star power and wide scale promotions. But still it did’t receive desired opening and also remained almost flat over the opening weekend due to mixed reviews.
Despite Raksha Bandhan holiday JHMS got failed to attract more audience after the weekend and did the business total 59.75 crores in the opening week, that included 45.75 crores of weekend and 14 crores of weekdays from around 3200 screens across the country.
In the second week, Imtiaz Ali’s directorial had newly released Toilet Ek Prem Katha of superstar Akshay Kumar in opposite which is being liked by everyone and diverted most of the audience toward itself. This is the reason, SRK-Anushka starrer didn’t take much growth in second weekend.
It raked the business of only 2.85 crores to it’s account, with 0.75 crore on Friday, 1.10 crore on Saturday and 1 crore on Sunday. Then in weekdays, once again JHMS dropped abruptly and showed no growth in business despite two holidays.
Jab Harry Met Sejal minted the amount of 0.50 crore on Monday (Krishna Janmashtami) and 0.45 crore on Tuesday (Independence Day). With further drops, it collected 0.25 crore on Wednesday and 0.20 crore on Thursday. With this, total 2 weeks collection of the movie has become 64 crores at domestic box office.
