Red Chillies Entertainment’ latest collaboration with superstar Shahrukh Khan has not resulted out well. The last week released movie ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal‘ is not getting much response at box office and after 10 days of release, it is still far way from the mark of 100 cr. Despite so much hype, heavy promotions and mixed reviews by most of critics, it has almost failed to sustain up to the expectations and emerged as the biggest commercial disaster of the year.
In the opening week, Imtiaz Ali’s directorial did the business of 59.75 crores, that included 45.75 crores of weekend and 14 crores of weekdays from 3200 screens across India. Now Jab Harry Met Sejal is running in it’s second week and was expected to do atleast an average business in the weekend. But it witnessed abrupt drop in footfalls and minted the amount of 0.75 crore with 80% of dip than the previous day.
Then with little growth, Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma’s third collaboration raked the business of 1.10 crore on Saturday and 1 crore on Sunday. With this, total 10 days collection of Jab Harry Met Sejal has become 62.60 crores. On other side Mubarakan is holding well and should be a concern for already struggling Jab Harry Met Sejal. Also this week release Akshay Kumar starrer Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has opened on a decent note but picked up on its opening weekend.
It also has an extra advantage of Independence Day on Tuesday. Helmed by Imtiaz Ali, the film received a mixed response from critics and audiences alike. None the less, Shah Rukh and Anushka’s Punjabi and Gujarati impersonations have been appreciated by one and all. Jab Harry Met Sejal is A search for Sejal’s engagement ring makes Harry understand love and relationships better, while Sejal experiences newfound freedom, security and solace in Harry’s company.
