Jab Harry Met Sejal Day 2 Box Office Collection Update

Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ was below-the-mark on its opening day at the box office, with collections of Rs 15.25 crore on Friday. The Day 1 business is similar or slightly higher than Imtiaz Ali’s last film ‘Tamasha’, which collected Rs 11 crore on its opening day – but it had a lesser star, released on 2000 screens two years ago and the average ticket price was significantly lower too.

In fact, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ has all-time highest average ticket price at multiplexes, even higher than films like ‘Bahubali 2’ and ‘Tubelight’. Higher ticket rates is not necessarily a good thing from a business point of view, because it could have an impact on the occupancy levels in theatres.

The opening of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is lower than SRK’s last film ‘Raees’ which was involved in a box office clash with Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’. ‘Raees’ was a film that appealed to a wider section of the audience, especially at smaller cities and towns where ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ hasn’t even got an initial. The lead star is the same in both films, in fact here we have a top female star like Anushka Sharma in a commercial film, but it’s the treatment that discouraged the audience from queueing up at theatres on Friday.

Amongst 2017 releases, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ has taken the third best opening of the year after ‘Tubelight’ and ‘Raees’. But the occupancy wasn’t that much higher than films like ‘Jolly LLB 2’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ – those films were desi entertainers and had something in it for audience at smaller cities.

On the all-crucial Day 2, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ has slipped at multiplexes with occupancy dropping by 15-20% from Friday morning levels. At some places the drop is as high as 30% from Friday. This could be because Shah Rukh Khan films get higher footfalls on Friday morning, as his fans do watch his films ‘first day first show’.

Business is expected to escalate in the night. Occupancy for shows from Saturday evening onwards are crucial for such films, but there is uncertainty and fear within the industry and trade because the reports are dismal.

Due to high costs and a disappointingly low starting total, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ Day 2 box office collections need to grow by atleast 20% growth today, which would mean collections in the 18-19 crore range and a 21 crore plus total tomorrow. That kind of growth will take the film to a 55 crore first weekend – which wouldn’t be enough, but it would suggest a healthy trend and help the film take advantage of the partial holiday for Raksha Bandhan.

Update: Official Day 1 collections, Rs 15.25 crore.

  • Audience keeps coming on day 1 to watch his movie and SRK keeps disappointing them on a regular basis. Watched the movie and the only thing I can say is I am Extremely Disappointed. My rating is 2/5 and I am being lenient here.

    Managed to watch the whole movie (extremely painfully) only because of SRK otherwise it is absolutely un-watchable. My expectations from the movie were low but I am still disappointed. Extremely silly plot, silly characters, silly dialogues, songs un-necessarily popping out. You dont feel a single bit for the characters. I cannot find a single reason to recommend some one to watch it. I have seen few Imtiaz films and this is his worst work.

    Had SRK done this movie 15 years back it may have been acceptable. But today while Aamir is selecting movies like PK, 3I, Dangal, I don’t know what SRK made select this movie thinking that this will bring him back into the game.

    After all the disappointing movies he has done, SRK is still the one after Aamir & Salman who can constantly deliver a solid opening (regardless of genre). But I dont know how long that will continue for SRK as he keeps disappointing the audience again and again.

    This will be both a critical and commercial failure. Box office wise I see this going Fan way and crashing big ways Monday onwards. No way I expect it to cross 100 cr and it will be a flop which it deserves to be. SRK was at the top of his game once and he has failed to change himself with times. His poor script sense is leading to his downfall. The rule is simple. You work hard and intelligently both keeping in view what audience wants. Aamir has done that and made his way to the top. If you don’t you will continue to come down like what is happening to SRK currently. It is a sinple rule. No emotions involved.

    The only positive thing which may come out from this movie is that its box office result may force SRK to change his thought process. Be more serious about selecting good scripts, choose a better team and stop taking audience for granted.

    Anyways Hope never dies and it shouldnt. One can only hope he delivers something satisfying in future.

    I was around for this movie only. Might be back around Diwali time for Golmaal 4 as that should be a fun movie. Might be.

    In the meanwhile well wishes for TEPK and Baadshaho. Both are looking interesting. Industry badly needs them to be hits.

      • A fan cannot praise when a movie is s#it. He has been letting us down for past 6 years after MNIK. Only Don 2 was good.

    • Today’s movies…..
      1.no plot/wafer thin plot/plot with potholes
      2.no character depth/back story
      3.limited characters ,revolves only around hero and heroine with sidekicks as fillers.
      4.loosing desi touch,shooting done abroad
      5.no family member shown ,no character artist involved ,movies like arun,jhms have not a single of protagonist family member
      6.remakes/reboot made just to encash success of previous movies

    • Frankly no SRK fan is bigger than me in this world but I just couldn’t go to theatre 2nd time even though I booked it before watching first time. It’s such pathetic movie. Anushka character was more torturous to me… how can you force the guide just for the missing ring?. What’s his fault?. Also how the he’ll you can say to him to treat her like girl friend just bcoz he is lonely??. Is she really in love with her fiancee ..?. Why the he’ll she goes to pubs n bars in those countries..just to invite trouble??? Yuck characterization. Even SRK keeps on saying in the movie that we should stop this nonsense now..thats what the impact of this movie on every audience.

      This time I’m pretty sure SRK didn’t liked the movie himself that is the reason I guess the movie got delayed release in Dubai ie after 6pm on Thursday…he knows bad reviews will affect india collections. SRK should have thought this while reading the script….

      Anyways I will still love SRK what he has done for the past 25 years. I really want him to read these comments from true fans and create havoc in box office collections in his future movies.

    • 20 years have been flop – Salman, Aamir, Akshay …Success after 2010, when millions of peasants from the villages came to work for the city,in industry, they replenished the number of moviegoers.
      Today, 70% of viewers in India and Asia – yesterday’s peasants, urban slum dwellers and their children … The rapid development of the economy has given them a job, earnings, they have increased the cinema audience … But the level of development of thinking lags behind the material level. Morally and culturally they are still at the level of the Middle Ages … For these 70% viewers primitive movies of your idols about the village, fighting in panties, about toiletes , film – animation etc.You from this number

  • One more flop in Srk’s kitty. Now those Srk fans who were barking at the time of Tubelight will learn lesson.No star in the world can carry a film only on his stardom. There must be at least one or two things to support like good content, popular music, good trailer. Both Tubelight and JHMS lacked everything.

    • @Tiger;
      How many support Srk want to give good opening, let me tell you that JHMS Trailer was received well by audience and trade people (compare to Tubelight which was rejected by trade), JHMS has Top Heroin (Tubelight does not have any heroin), even Music also received very well of JHMS, 3-4 remakes are out, song with Diplo, they also release some songs in other languages just like Srk did at the time FAN (while in Tubelight except 1-2 songs nothing is good, even those songs are slow and non-massy)……..What else you want for support……Even Ticket Price are higher than Tubelight…..Still only 15cr opening while Tubelight give 21cr opening that too in Ramadan Period, which means in normal day it will collect 25-26cr easily in worst condition (don’t forget that Salman has huge fan following in Muslims……

    • Maybe its not a masala film which we are expecting him to make and cross 300 and 1000 cr mark, u guys call salman actor who barely acts and does only remakes to cross 300 crore, cmon guys hits and failures are part, maybe SRK have to plan it better as a businessman but dont say he’s bad as actor. Just 1 movie cannot make and break any actor, he’s the one who is experimenting with characters, superhero, bootlegger, guide, army officer, his own fan. When everyone was remaking south indian movies to earn money, he still had guts to make experimental movie with huge budget. A movie can be hit or flop on its merit but his acting should not be questioned. Even Aamir’s Talaash was disaster, but no one complained at that time. Coz box office is not always important, if u go to hollywood, none of the biggest blockbusters are even nominated for any awards as there is difference between earning money and a performance oriendted movie and SRK always performs.

  • Imitiaz Ali has officially lost it. Man is repackaging same story in his every film and if he can’t think of new ideas then he should collaborate with some others writers or pick other writers script.
    i don’t understand the urge to write when u can’t think of something novel.

    And as for Srk i don’t think he even read the scripts. Signing crap after craps, Taking audience for granted and serving them garbage. If he will not respect the audience now than time won’t be far away when his film will not be getting the initial.

  • King Haters, don’t be so happy seeing 15cr collections of JHMS. Picture abhi baaki hain…Red Chillies official figures yet to come out. And we all know the prowess of Red Chillies calculator. They are capable of giving 9cr extra collections per day. So, don’t be surprised if we see 24cr (15+9) nett collections for JHMS opening day.
