It’s no secret now that Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is not sustaining at the box office and the film is carrying extremely negative word-of-mouth. The growth on Sunday isn’t really there, when (given the high costs and star cast) today should have seen the film crossing the 25 crore mark at the box office.
Tomorrow is a partial holiday for ‘Raksha Bandhan’, but we doubt the film will hold up. Some multiplexes are bringing down the ticket prices to weekday levels tomorrow, while others will continue selling tickets at weekend rates. Tuesday is the first weekday for the film, ticket prices will come down all across and since the film is only performing at metro cities – business is likely to come crashing down. And then there is a big film like ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ scheduled for next week.
The collections of the film has shocked the industry and added to the gloom in the ‘Post Bahubali 2’ era. Almost all films have fallen. A film like ‘Tubelight’ that was expected to do 300 crore, finished with collections of 120 crore, while another major superstar like Shah Rukh Khan could now be giving a film that grosses less than his 2010 film ‘My Name Is Khan’. In fact, the collections of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ could end up being lower than a small critically acclaimed film like ‘Hindi Medium’.
These are disastrous times for the industry. All eyes will now be on Akshay Kumar’s ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’.
We are going with 67 crore as the lifetime collection of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’.
