The Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer ‘Jab Harry met Sejal‘ saw a big drop on Monday after which the collection comes up to 6-7 crore nett. Looking at the 55% drop from the first day, it seems like only the opening day collection was the best. We’d expected the movie to make good numbers considering it was a long weekend with Monday being a holiday on occasion of Raksha Bandhan. The movie saw the best collection South and West Bengal and those places are where Raksha Bandhan isn’t a major holiday and so the business had a big fall. Due to the holiday, the film held better in UP and Rajasthan but will see a drop today.
The film has made a little over 50 crore nett at the box office in four days and considering that the film might not work as much in its second week, the collection won’t go higher. The early estimate of the first week business is that of 60 crore nett but again, it all depends on the fall today. Ever since Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’, the box office has been seeing a horrible run and now it is kind of getting scary as the flops pile.
Even though, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ was never going to be a huge hit since it is an urban film and with Imtiaz Ali’s touch to it, the movie was not supposed to reach a good number. It was only the presence of Shah Rukh Khan in the film which was expected to make some collection. But overall, this movie looks like a fail.
