After a long delay, finally the much awaited offering of Ranbir Kapoor with ex-girlfriend and Bollywood’s one of the most popular actresses Katrina Kaif, Jagga Jasoos is all set to hit theaters this Friday i.e. July 14. Directed by Anurag Basu, this musical adventure film is expected to take decent start at box office.
After the mammoth Baahubali 2, almost all the anticipated Indian films got disappointment at box office. Infact superstar Salman Khan starrer highly buzzed Tubelight faced a denial of audience. Half year has passed and Bollywood witnessed only several hits.
So this is why, trade analysts do not have high expectations with Jagga Jasoos. But considering the previous records of Ranbir and Katrina together, then their third collaboration seems able to take a decent start. Also with the promos, it has created good buzz among moviegoers.
Earlier Ranbir and Katrina were seen together in 2009’s Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and 2010’s Rajneeti. Both the films were came out good and the actors received huge appreciation for their crackling chemistry. With Anurag Basu, Jagga Jasoos is the second collaboration of Ranbir after a big hit 2012’s Barfi!.
Fortunately all the facts seem in favor of Jagga Jasoos, which is releasing on more than 1800 screens in India and 610+ screens in overseas. As per reports, it has recorded decent advance booking and positively expected to witnessed 30-35% of occupancy across the country.
With good pre release hype and decent advance booking, Jagga Jasoos seems to take the opening of 7-8 crores at domestic box office. It could show good jump over the weekend, if audience and critics react in favor.
Another Hindi offering Shab and much buzzed American film War for the Planet of the Apes are also being released in opposite to Jagga Jasoos this Friday.
