Couple of weeks back released much awaited Hindi movie of the year, Jab Harry Met Sejal has actually got failed to impress most of the audience. Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer this romantic drama was expected to end the dry spell of box office, but it itself become the victim due to weak script and unpleasant music.
Directed by Imtiaz Ali, JHMS is the third collaboration of Shahrukh-Anushka after 2008’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and 2012’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan. So it was also expected to perform like their previous movies, but this one betrayed them and fans. Instead of recreating the magic, it emerged as the biggest commercial disaster of the year so far.
From a long time superstar Shahrukh Khan and director Imtiaz are seeking for a hit and this time too they both have got nothing but disappointment.

Then in the second week, it had another biggie Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha in opposite which is being liked by everyone. So the conditions for Jab Harry Met Sejal were became more harder and it ended the week with only 4.25 crores that included 2.85 crores of weekend and 1.40 crore of weekdays. After two weeks, total collection of the movie was recorded as 64 crores at domestic box office.
Now JHMS is running in the third week and has only limited screens left across the country. In the third weekend, it garnered the business of total 0.21 crore with 0.06 crore on 3rd Friday, 0.07 crore on 3rd Saturday and 0.08 crore. With this total domestic collection of Jab Harry Met Sejal after 17 days of release, has become 64.21 crores. Now it doesn’t even seem to touch the mark of 65 crores in lifetime.
