Jai Ho the Salman Khan starer reportedly was made on a budget of Rs 75 Crore..the movie hit 4,500 screens all over india. The movie collected around Rs 17.55 crore in the country on Friday according to an official statement. Rajesh Thadani from Multimedia Combines said. “As per my knowledge, it’s less than Rs 17 crore. The figure is quite low. When Ek Tha Tiger released in 2012, it collected around Rs 30 crore on its opening day. It’s Republic Day today (Sunday), so the figures will be better. But it is expected to earn maximum Rs 25 crore,” he added.
Directed by Sohail Khan, the movie also stars newcomer Daisy Shah along with Tabu and Danny Denzongpa, is a political thriller which has Salman Khan in the lead role with a heavy dose of action sequences. Like his previous super hit movies like Wanted, Dabangg2, and Ek Tha Tiger- were all action packed movies made for the masses and Jai Ho too belongs to the same category.
Punnet Sahay of Spice Cinemas says that the movie being the same genre again will not excite audeinces. “On Friday, the occupancy was just 40 percent and Saturday was 50 percent. Sunday’s morning shows were around 80 percent. “Going by the performance, Jai Ho will probably touch Rs 100 crore in a week, but not in the first three days of its release. Some people from the audience said that it’s repetitive. People are probably fed up of the fact that he is continuously doing action movies,” said Sahay.
