  • November 21st, 2012.

Before the theatrical release of Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan, there was tremendous curiosity in the trade. Can Jab Tak Hai Jaan beat Ek Tha Tiger to be the year’s biggest grosser? If it does, can it go on to finally cross the 202 mark of 3 Idiots, thereby also joining the 200 crore club?

3 Idiots, currently holds the record for the highest grossing Hindi film in history. The record was set in 2009. Since then, every big ‘superstar’ release was expected to surpass the Aamir Khan classic. Ek Tha Tiger came close, but finished it’s record-smashing run 2 crores short of the 202 crore target.

Below, we track Jab Tak Hai Jaan’s box office figures day wise and compare it to Ek Tha Tiger and 3 Idiots. This page will also be updated everyday with predictions.

Note: Due to fewer screens and competition, the opening weekend of JTHJ is unlikely to come close to ETT. In the long run, with good word-of-mouth and family audience coming out in numbers to watch Yash Chopra’s last film.. who knows?

Jab Tak Hai Jaan vs Ek Tha Tiger vs 3 Idiots

Updates

  • 13th November: Shahrukh Khan’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan opens well on 2500 screens in India. Business at mass centres affected due to competition from Son Of Sardar. Also, the runtime of 3 hours has resulted in fewer shows at multiplexes. Diwali festivities in most parts of the country, considerably reduces occupancy for afternoon / evening shows. Day 1: 15.2 crore
  • 14th November: Picked up all over India by more than 30% to record a healthy two day total. Again, SOS affected collections in North India. Day 2: 19.54 crore
  • 15th November: Expected drop on Thursday. Nothing major. JTHJ continues to do well at multiplexes across India. Super strong in West Bengal, Nizam/Andhra and Mysore. At this point, after 3 days (considered to be the first weekend), Ek Tha Tiger leads with 60.34 cr, followed by Jab Tak Hai Jaan 49.22 cr and 3 Idiots with 40 cr (incl preview shows).
  • 16th November: Will be updated soon with official figures. Early estimates suggest a 30% drop.
  • 17th November: Business dropped on Saturday as theatres in Maharashtra were shut down after the passing away of Bal Thackeray.
  • 18th November (Sunday) : While the all India business picked up by 10%, all theatres in Maharashtra remained shut. The records of 3 Idiots and Ek Tha Tiger out of reach now.
  • 19th November: The film dropped considerably on it’s first weekend (Monday).
  • 20th November: Dropped again by 13%. Business in Maharashtra was back to normal, but didn’t help the total.

@Aashkaran, yes. And we did mention it too. But if the film is good, it will do well in the longer run. Today and tomorrow will be crucial.

People Says : Ek Tha Tiger Release with 3300 Screen and Earn 61-62 Cr. in 3 days
and Jab Tak Hai Jaan 2600 Screen so Earn 45 Cr.

My question is what about
Bodyguard and Dabangg ??

3days: Bodyuard 52cr (2250) Screens

3days: Dabangg 49cr (1800) Screens

3days: JTHJ 45 cr (2600) screens

If there was no competition from son of sardaar the single halls would also be ruled by JAB TAK HAI JAAN.And considering 3 idiots that is a really very respectful total really.But ek tha tiger will never be considered in the run because it had 15% high ticket price which brings its total down to 185 cr.And the screen were 3500 as well.

And 3 idiots scored 8.3 in idmb whereas JAB TAK HAI JAAN has recorded 8.4 and still growing.But ek tha tiger has just got 5.3!It really did not deserve to break the record.Now all eyes are surely on the business of jab tak hai jaan SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.

And anyways JAB TAK HAI JAAN has already collected 4.3 million$( 22 crores)overseas without counting countries like PAKISTAN.In pakistan the film is expected to shatter even the collections of the pakistani blockbuster BOL.And the lifetime expectations overseas can be said to be around 70-75 crores(at the least).And locally due to TALAASH coming up I donot think it will break the records but will go upto 175 crores margin which brings its total to 250 crores nett.And also it has the chances to break 3 idiots record of 270 crores nett.

Shahrukh Khan -- The sexiest actor in the world
‎[Must Read] -- One thing that very few people
know or we can say more than 90%
people are not aware about this.

Ek Tha Tiger :- 3300 screens

Running time -- 2hr 10 min

No of shows in 1 screen -- minimum 7

Total no of shows in 1 day in India:- 3300 x 7 =
23100

Jab Tak Hai Jaan :- 2500 screens

Running time -- 3hr

No of shows in 1 screen is 5

Total no of shows in 1 day in India :- 2500 x 5 = 12500

Difference :- 23100 -- 12500 = 10600

So ETT had 10600 more shows than JTHJ in India

In Overseas ETT released in 600 screens & JTHJ in
650 screens

ETT 600 x 7 = 4200
JTHJ 650 x 5 = 3250

Here also ETT got 950 shows more
than JTHJ
Worldwide 3 days collections

ETT = 74 crores
JTHJ = 72.5 crores…

So ETT got 10600 + 950 shows more
thn JTHJ and collection is just 1.5
crore more than JTHJ.

Now think before commenting on JTHJ, SRK & Yash Ji.

No chance to beat 3 Idiots it was a masterpiece. The repeat value of the film made it what it is today. 3idiots also released with 1500 prints almost half of ETT and 70% less then JTHJ. If ETT and JTHJ both have released with the same amount of prints i bet none of them would have crossed 125 crores because script is pretty weak. Dabangg 2 will beat Lifetime record of 3idiots bcoz of number of prints and marketing otherwise even it cant. I know its hard for srk fans to digest that after Om Shanti OM he hasnt been able to deliver a monster hit. Aamir and Salman have captured but massy and multiplex crowd. I am predicting a 140-145 crore lifetime for JTHJ bcoz of 6 day weekend otherwise a film like JTHJ would have not done more then 90+ business if released on a regular friday…

And to all the mathematics wizards out there even if you release your movie with 30000000 prints it wont automatically generate revenues actually it will increase the cost of the movie but heaps and bounds. Secondly even if a movie releases with record prints that doesnt mean it will earn money bcoz you need people to go and watch movie. If nobody goes to these theatres then what will print count do?

srk haters. if u r bad in calculations plz see the figures of indicine on this page rather than calculating by Ur self
first mistake about screens. some says 2660 some says 2700
but as indicine has pointed out ITS 2500.
AND 3 DAY TOTAL IS 49.22CRORES AND NOT 45

Indicine please enlighten srk fans that print counts doesnt mean anything but can only increase the budget of the movie and can only help in first 3 days. Plus SOS got bad single screens and JTHJ took all the prominent screens of the major cities why is that not mentioned? i dont think so 500 screens would made a grand difference when you already have 6 day weekend. If people are not watching the movie how on earth will print count help the film?

So… when heroines say that ‘I wore a bikini because the story demanded me to’, I did it (the kiss) because the story demanded it. Believe me or don’t believe it,” said the 47-year-old actor, who has been in showbiz for over two decades.

Shah Rukh feels doing something as intimate as a kiss on screen, is mechanical.

“It is very mechanical with 100 people telling you what to do. It’s very odd. I don’t even do photoshoots with heroines if it is not for my film and that is also rude, but I don’t want to waste anyone’s time. I find it very awkward taking my shirt off and posing. I can do it in character for film,” he said.

SRK WILL DO ANYTHING FOR MONEY.
