Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma‘s Jab Harry Met Sejal has been one of the most anticipated films of the year. As expected the movie has received overwhelmed response from audience across the country as well as overseas. From critics also it has got rave reviews, which have generated positive word of mouth about it and attracting more audience toward theaters.
The multiplexes in big cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore and Kolkata are the second best of the year after Bahubali – The Conclusion. At other places the opening is not strong as a Raees or Tubelight but that is expected as the content is more urban. If we compare day 1 occupancy then it is similar to Tubelight on lesser volume but it is lower than Raees.
On the opening day, Jab Harry Met Sejal recorded 55% of occupancy for morning shows in India, while in north alone it opened up with 45-50%. Multiplexes across the country witnessed good growth from evening shows and garnered the impressive business of 15.25 crores from 3200+ screens.
Most of the audience liked the film and showing big thumbs up. Their positive reactions have generated positive word of mouth for Jab Harry Met Sejal, which attracts more audience toward theaters. After such response, it positively seems to take growth over the weekend and Monday (Raksha Bandhan) ofcourse.
Jab Harry Met Sejal is eventually a film which is more content driven rather than the one which opens with a bang so it will have potential upside on Saturday and Sunday. But while the film has started off on such an interesting note. Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma to the cast has already doubled up the expectations for the film. It is also being said Shah Rukh Khan asked Imtiaz not to keep the story too dark but light hearted.
