Jai Ho First Day Box Office Collections: Early Estimate

Jai HoJai Ho has collected around Rs 17-18 crore at the domestic box office, as per estimates based on collections from a few centres. The film has done well at single-screens, but the response at multiplexes is quite similar to Akshay Kumar’s Boss.

While evening and night shows did witness decent growth in business, the footfalls (number of people who watched the film) at multiplexes was less than 50% of Ek Tha Tiger and even lower than films like Dabangg 2.

Extreme cold in North India also seems to have affected the film, as the occupancy in circuits like East Punjab, Delhi / UP was the lowest for a Salman Khan starrer since Veer.

When the final collections come in, the first day collections of Jai Ho could be around the same level as Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, which sold fewer tickets but collected about the same due to the fantastic response that it got at multiplexes.

The opening day business is way below trade expectations, so the film has pick up tomorrow and on Sunday for it to have any chance of recovering its high costs. The producers of the film have already made huge profits, but if the film doesn’t pick up, the distributors might end up in the red.

On the bright side, the reports from theatres is good, probably the best for a Salman Khan film since Dabangg (2010).



  • Movies don’t run just by publicity and creating hype …people are fed up with this kind of movies ….
    Talent salman khan ???? Where is that ?
    Improve your acting skills rather than taking digs at king khan and gaining publicity …
    17…18 cr ? Bad figure for SK movie
    Wake up salman khan ..

  • I thought after jai ho Salman should do ek tha tiger kind of action in upcoming movies like kick, kabir khans next.

  • Now we ll see some excuses from Salman fans. Salman is not supported by big banner. Not an eid release. Cold wave in the north. All the Salman fans were not aware that Jai ho released yesterday, etc etc. lol!!

  • I am a Salman fan and I thought low collection of jai ho is due same kind of south Indian action, very low promotion.

  • Salman should learn from shahrukh to how to promote film.shahrukhs happy new year poster comes 10 month before films release and Salman releases his films poster

  • Salman should learn from shahrukh to how to promote film.shahrukhs happy new year poster comes 10 month before films release and Salman releases his films poster 1 month before films release.he promote jai ho only 15 days.he had to continuosly promote his films 1-1.5 months atleast to get good collections.

  • The film is getting incredible WOM.
    I am very happy Salman is doing such amazing content based inspiring movies.
    On the other hand, SRK is doing crappier and crappier movies. Ra.One, Chennai Express, Fan and now HNY.

  • this is one of d bst movie of salman after DABBANG….it gives a beautiful msg to all citizens of india…..i’m not a biggest fan of salman though i suggest all people to go and watch this movie…..

  • ur so called movie from so called mega super ultimate star Salman khan collected around 16 cr (5000 screens)…Pathetic situation…

  • @Aeeyy y r u so obsessed with khan. According to Boi boss did 12 cr on Eid holiday while jai ho 15 cr on non holiday (final fig yet to come). First Akki need to cross 60 cr barrier which he stuck with last 5 movies. Don’t compare Akki with khan. This is Salmans lowest opener still better than akshays biggest opener. This shows everything. I like akshays acting but I really hate his fans. Who runs don’t accept truth.

  • No offence to salman or his fans, but this proves that a favourable release date like eid and xmas are the real stars. Srk showed it on eid with chennnai express. srk, aamir or hrithik can break any record. Sorry salman fans but his dream run is over.

  • Alok Nath Assessment:
    I am Disappointed by Day-1 box office collection but not totally surprised. Except for Salman there was nothing exciting about the promo, songs.
    1. Why Salman keeps on giving chances to his crappy brother who doesn’t know anything about direction.
    2. Heroines Salman chose in past were never good actors but at least they were Good Looking, this girl is neither.
    Although I have hearing few positives about this movie, Hoping a pick up during the weekend!
    @aeeyy: Agreed…I have saying this constantly that TOP 4 or 5 stars can break opening record with good release date and content.
    @trooper: Whatever Jai ho has collected is coz of Salman not even two ppl will turn up to watch Daisy Shah’s acting, shoddy music, and Direction of Sohail Khan..So This movie will not affect Salman’s Stardom.

  • wtf … Some srk fans shouting about the star power of salman ..? Their self proclaimed kings movies even struggles to cross 120cr before the crap names CE . We salman fans dont give excuses like srkians there are many for jai ho . By the way jai ho is very good movie … The word of mouth is extremely positive and collection will pick up in upcoming days . Hats Off to salman even his movie coming after gap of a year ..He release his movie with less ticket prices than CE and D3 . True entertainer superstar of comman Indians .

  • @Indicine, why didn’t you say that it had much lower ticket price comparing to CE and Dhoom3 on top of being a non-festive release? The WOM and audience feedbacks are awesone. So, it will run a long time in theatres and make huge collections…

  • Aam Aadmi ke upar movie banayi hai bhai ne…..Aur Isiliye tickets ke rates nahi badaye…..take Aam Aadmi dekh sake….♥♥♥
