Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ made it to theatres last Friday and contrary to our expectations the film failed to make it big at the box office. Fans and critics expected the movie to end the jinx that Bollywood has been going through in recent times.
But seems like the audience has turned quite choosy while selecting the film, and ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ has not made it. The box office numbers are really disappointing.
As per statistics, in one week, this film has managed to garner approximately Rs 58 crore nett at the box office. SRK’s last film ‘Raees’ that had made it to the theatres in the month of January this year proved to be one of the highest grossers of 2017 till date. In one week, ‘Raees’ managed to cross Rs 100 crore mark at the box office. Looks like SRK’s gangster avatar worked better than his lover-boy character for the audience.
This week, we have Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar’s ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ making it to the theatres. The anticipation for this film too is very high, but we hope that it does not meet the same fate of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal.
