Mumbai, Nov 19 (): Always the magic of late legend Yash Chopra has worked well and his last venture, “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”(JTHJ) in which he used the same magic based on romance formula, has also proved his talents.

The movie has done a good job in the box office collection centres, raking in 85 crores in its long six-day opening weekend at the domestic box office.

As per reports stated in boxoffice capsule, the collection at the domestic box office is as follows – the movie collected 15 cr on Diwali day, 19.50 cr on Wednesday, 14.50 cr on Thursday, 11.00 cr on Friday, 11.00 cr on Saturday and the early reports say 14.00 cr was collected on Sunday.

So, the total domestic box office collection is 85 crores and by adding 45.50 crores of its overseas collection, the total worldwide collection for the movie rounds up to 130.50 crores.

Trade analysts say Jab Tak Hai Jaan is doing well at the multiplexes but the single-screen business has not been that strong. The movie has witnessed a roaring opening in the overseas market too.

The movie, JTHJ featuring Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma is a love story released on 2,500 screens on the auspicious occasion Diwali, Nov 13. The movie is shot in colourful foreign locales, which is produced under family banner Yash Raj Films by Aditya Chopra and was said to have made at a budget of Rs 50 crore.

Before the release of the movie, JTHJ faced some serious real drama, since the movie’s title was announced. The director of the film, Yash Chopra passed a month before the release of the movie, which was followed by release clash with Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardaar. And the sudden demise of Balasaheb Thackeray has also considerably affected the business of the movie. In spite of all such disturbances, the movie has managed to do well at the box office.
