Race 2 vs Jai Ho: Republic Day release comparison

Republic Day released have fared reasonably well at the box office in the last 3 years or so. Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath broke opening day records and went on to collect around Rs 120 crore at the domestic box office. Last year, Race 2 starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, did well too collecting Rs 101.52 crore.

This year it was the biggest superstar in the industry, Salman Khan, who released his much-awaited film Jai Ho. Considering the fact that the film had such a wide release and was Salman’s first release in more than a year, Jai Ho has under-performed at the ticket window.

  • Cost: Race 2 – 84 crore, Jai Ho – 90 crore+
  • Release: Race 2 – 3200 screens, Jai Ho – 3900 screens
  • Distributors share: Race 2 – 54.8 crore, Jai Ho – 60 (expected)

Even a film like Boss which did poor business at plexes, the ratio was 61:39.

  • @beingconfusedfan of lungi king Sarkar Rukh Khan or box office king Salman bhai…?

    Tomorrow we will see you in lungi attire but still the folk of paglapur will not grant you entry and once again you will wander middle earth seeking refuge in one camp anybodys camp……! :-P

  • Bhai Lover Forget the Past and Face the present and think about future. Back 2 Back Blockbusters are past now. talk about which is happening now.

  • @navin .. dude are you kidding me ? you seriously think one’s got time to post comments through 3 diff. id’s ? :/
    Idk about others .. I’m Zeeshan Sayed.
    no idea about Zee Srk & Syed .. they are different people.

  • navin .. guess you’re too fazed by Jai Ho shocker .. or are you a tingu fan ??
    Ohh wait !! may be you’re just jealous of SRK !!
    #DhobiNavin :) tingu fan.

  • @nipun alcoholic Im giving reasons for why a drunk like you hates ‘khans’ so much…!

    Guess I hit the nail right on the head… Oouuchh hurts does it- good coz your anti khan mantra riles me- Im an atheist but love actors off all backgrounds but morons like you are throwbacks to the dark ages where such trivial things are considered important…!

  • @zeeshan whatever- nobody sane enough will believe your mumbo jumbo and yes you clearly have time to post many comments as you posted 2 silly comments at 3 min interval whereas earlier in the day you posted 2 comments at 5 min interval which indicates you switched devices or switched IDs… Its easily done- infact on another day I noticed how @SS + @MG were posting similar gibberish farcical comments but unlike you those retards were able to switch their lungis sorry I meant IDs in under 2 mins…

    PS some free advice- mail them and ask them for some common courtesy to see if they can tell you how they are able to change IDs more quickly than you are clearly managing…! :-P

  • if hny get 200+ this yr then also it will be criticised by salu fans.so jai ho ko criticize karna banta hai na boss.

  • @Anand and @True Fan,why your bhojpuri lallu bhai couldnít give a single hit with a lead role any film before south remake?actually you people talked about a lot about SRKís film,so here are the BO worldwide collections of Ra One,DON2,bg,ready which will shut down your mouth completely.

    Ra.One 241 cr*

    Don 2 231 cr*

    Bodyguard 229 cr

    Ready 185 cr

    your bhaiís record of bbs were ended.so by seeing above one can easlily distinguish the KING of BO.after heavy promotion of jai ho,additional promotion by aamir,released with 4500 screen ticket price same as CE in single screen,still canít beat 3year before Ra One and last yearís ram leela record.kick will collect at least 150-165cr in domestic donít even dream to break CEís record.mark my words salman can never touch 200cr club.because his stardom is much lower than hr now.so obviously for this now only cry by watching your bhaiís 4year collection validity that got expired.one can easliy get bb by keeping lower budget of film just like aashique-2,otherwise hr is bigger star than our bhojpuri bhai.now they can only depend upon talash-2/p.k for higher grosser.pity on sallu fans,where were you hiding before 2010.your crying just started.

  • 1 of the biggest reason of jai ho’s underperformance is director sohail khan.
    movie’s content was good but very bad directoin ..

  • CBD exceeded my expectations in every way thanks. I’ve struggled with insomnia looking for years, and after demanding CBD like pro the prime age, I lastly practised a loaded evening of pacific sleep. It was like a force had been lifted off my shoulders. The calming effects were indulgent after all sage, allowing me to meaning free uncomplicatedly without feeling woozy the next morning. I also noticed a reduction in my daytime angst, which was an unexpected but receive bonus. The partiality was a flash earthy, but nothing intolerable. Overall, CBD has been a game-changer quest of my sleep and solicitude issues, and I’m thankful to have discovered its benefits.
