Imtiaz Ali directed Jab Harry Met Sejal has turned out to be the biggest high profile disaster of 2017. The film saw mere Rs. 59.75 crore coming in its first week and that was definitely not a number that could have been imagined by anyone in the wildest of their dreams. The film has been rejected, and how, and this was demonstrated in the free fall that it experienced right through the weekdays.
In its first week, Jab Harry Met Sejal witnessed overall good but lesser than earlier expectations. It did the business of total 59.75 cr across the 3200 screens of country, that includes 45.75 cr of weekend and 14 cr of weekdays. The film was disappointing, no two words about it. However, the kind of crash that it has seen and the general avoidance from the audience is unprecedented.
Now it has entered in the second week and being the only strong option on box office, it is expected to get decent in this weekend. On Friday, it started the day on an average note and raked the business of 0.90 cr. After its 8th day, total domestic collection of Jab Harry Met Sejal is recorded as 60.65 cr. Let see how much rise it will take on Saturday and Sunday.
This is what happened with Jab Harry Met Sejal which could have possibly stretched towards the Rs. 80-90 crore zone at the least but would now end up at a much lesser total. While this is utterly disappointing, it is also a testimony to the fact that audiences have pretty much gone beyond the star power and are actually looking at something exceptional to play on the big screen if they have to make up their mind to step into theaters.
