Jab Harry Met Sejal: Lifetime Box Office Prediction Update

Note: The final IndicineLBO Prediction will be published tomorrow, this is just a quick update on what number to except from the lifetime business of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal.

It was one of the biggest releases of the year, a film that was expected to bring the best out of Shah Rukh Khan and more importantly the director, Imtiaz Ali, who has directed films like Socha Na Tha and Jab We Met.

But right from the moment the first ‘mini trail’ was out, the interest in the film dipped and the survey we did during the ‘Tubelight’ weekend, made it pretty clear that the normal audience (not including fans) simply weren’t interested in SRK’s latest offering.

Yet, we expected the film to collect around 17-18 crore on its opening day at the box office. That was the ‘IndicineFBO’ average range, for which we were criticised and mocked from those who were certain that the film would open above 20/25 crore.

The decision to stick to the 16-17 crore range came when the response to the advance booking was dismal outside the main cities. The final prediction was supposed to be 16.5 crore, but we decided to go with 17 crore. A case of pressure from fans affecting our prediction accuracy, because lower prediction and higher collection would mean extreme criticism.

Coming to the lifetime box office collections of the film, the reports vary from negative to extremely negative. There’s a drop of 15-20% on Saturday from Friday (until 3PM) and even though business is expected to pick up in the evening and peak at night, the film would need nothing less than a miraculous turnaround to show the kind of big growth it needs on Saturday and Sunday – after a poor start on Friday.

We are currently expecting the film to wrap with lifetime collections of around 75 crore. The level of collections in the next three days will decide if it goes above that number or does the unthinkable and falls below. We should be able to get a more accurate figure looking at the Saturday number.

Stay tuned for the final ‘IndicineLBO’ box office prediction tomorrow.

  • JHMS fails to beat Salman’s 3.5 years old release Jai Ho’s opening day collections… And it might fail to beat Salman’s 23 years old release HAHK’s lifetime collections. 3.7 billion fans wala global Megastar… Hahahaha.

  • PIYA MORE is becoming huge chartbuster…

    Music is becoming a rage!!!

    Don’t underestimate BAADSHAHO..
    @indicine ..u will regret.



  • World’s biggest superstar + iconic director + chart buster music and above all World’s biggest superstar in his best avatar (i.e romantic)… But opening day – 15cr, lifetime collections will be less than 75cr. Thu hai aisi lanat bhari zindegi pe..??

  • Bollywood is really really in big trouble .. Last hopes for industry are : tepk, golmaal , padmavati and TZH ……..

  • Global king is struggling to deliver a clean hit from 3 years, a HGOTY since last 10 years, JHMS fails to match 3.5 years old release Jai Ho’s opening day, lifetime will be less than Salman’s 23 years old release HAHK… Can’t understand WTF his 3.7 billion fans are doing!

  • Without Anushka, it would have done 60 cr lifetime… Aukaat of Self proclaimed King/World’s biggest star….

  • Srk should be removed from Superstar’s league…. 5 back to back Flops after HNY…. Dwarf will be 6th….

  • Haters always cry over manipulation.JHMS BOI fig is 15.50 crore.And official figure is 15.25 crore.
    Hats off to SRK for giving less collection than actual.

  • Although I hate Srk but some of his movies are kind of must watch as a bollywood lover and that’s the reason I went to watch the movie expecting a better treatment of the same Rom Com..But I was so disappointed as a viewer.. I mean how can you sign the movie which the viewers are watching in the last few years again and again, and there are so many songs it felt like a sooraj barjatya movie. Yes the performances are very good but the story nullified everything.in one hand we have regional movies doing wonders and in other hand we have bollywood whose last successful movie is Lipstick under my burkha..Nothing to say??

  • Ego Bruising moment for SRK fans….
    Now onwards be matured enough and Respect Other Stars…
    And watch TOILET-EPK on 11 August.

  • No matter how good or bad movie is.Go and watch JHMS.after that We have to wait till Christmas 2018 to watch him on big screen.

  • I can’t believe my eyes …lots of promotions , srks favourite genre I. E romance .top actress named anushka sharma ; full open week still only 75 weeks …..srk listen pack your bags now. ..

  • Nothing Against SRK,
    As Aamir said
    ‘Tubelight/JHMS failure won’t affect Salman/SRK’s Stardom’.
    But Haters were Trolling Aamir After PK & DANGAL Opening.
    But Now they will Realise
    Aamir’ Most Films are OffBeat still Record Openers,
    Aamir Turned his Offbeat films in to All Time Grossers.
    Pk took 26Cr Opening without Even Trailer,
    Only BRAND AAMIR Can Achieve this.
    And When he Does Commercial Films,He Takes BO by STORM.
    (Remember Dhoom3 Opening-
    90-95% Occupancy All Through Out the WEEKEND?)

  • Salman fan mocking SRK now..
    SRK fans mocked Salman during tubelight..
    But as a fan on hindi cinema, I m worried..
    Are we seeing end of Bollywood..
    @Indicine- pls answer

  • In this industry there is only one actor who can cross the 100 cr mark with a rejected product

    megastar superman salman

  • Fan which earned 85 crores in 2016 is looking baahubali 2 in front of jhms…srk kya sochke jhms ki thi…now paying public I has become much more intelligent and classy now ..people will not see same ddlj or kkhh type stuff again and again…..will india accept 52 yr old grandfather romancing his granddaughters aged anushka. …srk agar tum ashirwaad de dete anushka ko jhms mein to film all time blockbuster hoti.. but tum ne romance kiya ..ab bhukto..srk rk is still living in his days of 30s.

  • Its called Karma….
    Its getting back to srk for arrogance and egoistic behavior towards other actors… nobody can escape from Karma!!!
    Karma is hitting him like it did with salman even salman is known to arrogant with actors , insults people at awards shows…..both r bad and arrogant people….gud to c their films getting flopped at box office…

  • Jhms may do unthinkable now. .anything can happen now ….if Sunday did not do any chamatkaar …even 50 crores is looking mount everest now.. mega gigantic disaster is on the way..people are doing thoooooo thoooooo everywhere in india..whole india is thooking on your face srk…..yaad hai naa kaabil se clash kiya tha jaan boojh kar …usi ki saajaa hai yeh.yaad rakh na. ..

  • Now the collection of Tubelight which was 125cr is look like a Mountain in front of JHMS…..and remember that beside screen size nothing is in fair with Tubelight, in every department JHMS is ahead whether its Ticket Price, Top Heroin, Promotions, Songs, Trailer response etc etc….in everything JHMS leads still 1st day and lifetime collection is way below then Tubelight…..

    Now his fans should be shamed and please stop calling him World’s biggest superstar….You are making fun of him…..

    • @Salman fan
      Yeah today Salman>SRK in opening
      But Tubelight had other advantages
      1. 1200 more screen (DZ did 8cr opening in 1200 screens)
      2. Director of Ek tha tiger and BB
      3. Solo Eid
      4. Best phase of Salman
      Music of JHMS was also not chartbuster
      Trailer came just 14 days ago

      But I graciously accept Salman>>SRK
