65 crores! This could be the final collection of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ on the box office

2017 has surely not been a great year for Bollywood. The year witnessed some of the much anticipated films sinking at the box-office. And Salman Khan’s Tubelight and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal are two such films. The films flopped so badly at the box office that in various territories, many shows of the respective films were cancelled.

However, Jab Harry Met Sejal witnessed a huge response through advance bookings over its opening weekend, the collection of Rs. 50 crores in three days narrated the scenario of the audience’s reaction towards the film.

Although it was a slow start, Monday which was Raksha Bandhan gave decent numbers to Jab Harry Met Sejal only because of the festive occasion. Yet, from next day onwards which was Tuesday, the film kept on failing to bring more footfalls.

Only Rs. 2.50 crores were collected on Tuesday. And that’s not it, even Wednesday and Thursday also witnessed low collections of approximately Rs. 2.25 cr and Rs. 2 cr respectively.

Now that Akshay Kumar’s Toilet…Ek Prem Katha has hit the cinema screens, it is being estimated that this is going to be the last week of Jab Harry Met Sejal on the box-office. So, the overall collection that the film is expected to mint is only Rs 65 crores. Unfortunately, in last 7 years this is SRK’s first film that failed to gather numbers. Even Fan managed to mint Rs 84.10 crores.

“I am sure that a lot of people do not think that Jab Harry Met Sejal is an intellectual masterpiece, but I did not intend it to be one. Some said you really need to be intelligent to understand an Imtiaz Ali film. For me that was a blow. I feel that I have never been part of any intelligent club. I wanted to make a very simple film with all my heart. I have not made this film for praise,” Imtiaz Ali said.

Seems like audience is looking for something else, and it is not being delivered by the filmmakers of the industry. They are bored of watching the tried and tested formulas of Hindi films. In contrast, Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar’s Toilet…is also created quite a buzz among viewers. Let’s see what comes out this time.
