Jai Ho has collected around 60 crore in its first weekend at the domestic box office, with the Salman Khan starrer showing fantastic growth in business on Sunday. Even films that have excellent word-of-mouth fail to pick up by 60% on Sunday, something that Jai Ho has managed to do.
In some centres, the Sunday collections of Jai Ho was more than the combined total of Friday and Saturday, which clearly suggests that the word-of-mouth is probably the best for a Salman Khan film in recent times.
Today (Monday) will be extremely crucial. Initial reports from exhibitors for the morning shows, suggest that the film has managed to hold well at single-screens. Multiplex business is down by around 30-40% compared to Friday, which is normal.
If the film manages to hold at 10 crore+ today, then it has a good chance of crossing the 100 crore mark in its first week.
Jai Ho First Weekend Collections (Actuals)
- Friday – 17.38 crore
- Saturday – 16.45 crore (5% drop)
- Sunday – 26 crore (approx) (58% growth)
