Jai Ho box office collection: Salman Khan starrer earns over Rs 50 crore in its opening weekend

While Dabangg Khan’s latest outing had a dull start on its first day, the movie fared well on the weekend (Saturday and Sunday). However, Sohail Khan’s directorial venture still has a long way to go

Jai Ho starring Salman Khan and newbie Daisy Shah hit the screens on Friday. Since Sallu miyaan was returning on the big screen after a year, the expectations were sky high from this flick. However, Jai Ho received thanda response on the day of its release and collected only Rs 17.55 crore net. On Saturday, the collections went down further. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “Jai Ho Fri – 17.55 cr, Sat – 16.25 cr. Total – 33.80 cr nett… Info collected from my sources and confirmed with Eros. India biz only.” But as per media reports Salman-Daisy starrer showed growth on Sunday. “Jai Ho biz skyrockets today. Huge jump in biz” posted Adarsh.

According to Boxofficeindia, “Jai Ho had a good weekend thanks to very good business on Sunday which was a national holiday. The film collected 17 crore nett on Friday and 16 crore nett on Saturday and the Sunday total as per early estimates is around 25 crore nett. This will give weekend figures of around 58 crore nett”

With no big film releasing this week, Salman Khan’s latest offering has a good chance of raking in more moolah. But will it enter the Rs 100 crore club or break any box office record? We’ll have to wait and see!
