Box office collection : Jai Ho collects 88.78 crore in its first week (7 days)

Mumbai, Feb 1 (): Salman Khan starrer Jai Ho has completed its seven-day theatrical run with above average collections at the box office. The film has done its first week run with approximately Rs 88.78 crore earnings.

Trade analyst and film critic tweeted, “#JaiHo Wknd 60.68 cr, Mon 9.50 cr, Tue 7.30 cr, Wed 5.80 cr, Thu 5.50 cr. Week 1 total: ₹ 88.78 cr nett. India biz only”.

Trade experts had expected that one week collection of the movie would be closer to 200 crore mark, but the action drama has not surpassed even the 100 crore mark in the Indian market. It has also been unsuccessful to beat the records of Salman Khan’s previous hit films.

Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger had raked in Rs 32.92 crores at the Indian box-office. Jai Ho was released in 4,400 screens in the domestic market on January 24 and opened to overwhelming response in both multiplexes and single screens. Even though the movie had a huge screen count and good occupancy rates that ranged between 80% and 90% on the opening day, it could not beat the first day business record of Ek Tha Tiger.

In spite of receiving positive word of mouth, Jai Ho could not show any improvements in the coming days. Its collection rather dipped on Saturday. Sunday collection was bit encouraging, but not up to the mark. It saw nearly 40% fall on Monday and its business continued to dip through the following weekdays.

Its break-up for week one is Rs 17.75 cr on Fri, Rs 16.68 cr on Sat, Rs 26.25 cr on Sun, Rs 9.50 cr on Mon, Rs 7.30 cr on Tue, Rs 5.80 cr on Wed, Rs 5.30 cr on Thu.

The seven-day collection altogether is little more than what Salman Khan’s previous movies like Dabangg, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2 had earned in their opening weekend.

In seven days, Jai Ho has collected 88.50 cr nett and now it is heavily dependent on 2nd weekend for showing a good lifetime number. The Salman Khan starrer will fall short of his previous starrers like ”Dabangg”, ”Bodyguard” which were released 3-4 years back in 1000 screens less.
