Though Dabangg Khan’s new film didn’t witness an earth shattering opening, his film is in fact doing very well at the box office. As per the latest buzz, Jai Ho is now a part of the coveted Rs 100 crore club
Sohail Khan’s Jai Ho starring his superstar brother Salman Khan and newbie Daisy Shah released last Friday (24 January). While Salman Khan’s latest offering started on a disappointing note with collecting only Rs 17.75 crore on its opening day, Jai Ho’s collection picked up on Sunday and the film approximately raked in Rs 26.25 crore. Internationally too, the Salman starrer initially had a dry run but Sohail Khan’s directorial venture eventually showed growth. And as per the media reports, Sallu miyaan’s much-talked about Jai Ho has now crossed the Rs 100 crore benchmark worldwide. Film critic and tade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “Jai Ho started on a slow note in the international arena, but the biz witnessed day-wise growth in several markets. Jai Ho opng wknd: India *nett* Rs 60.68 cr, *gross* Rs 78.90 cr. Overseas *gross*Rs 22.38 cr. Worldwide total [gross]: Rs 101.28 cr.”
Within five days of its release, Salman’s film has grossed Rs 100 crore but sadly there is no hoopla around this piece of news. Maybe coz Aamir Khan’s Dhoom:3, Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish 3 and Shahrukh Khan Chennai Express which released last year raised the bar too high as far as numbers game is concerned. Whatever the reason but we do think Jai Ho is certainly not a flop. It may not break any records or create new ones at the box office but people are still going to the theatres to watch their favourite Khan. “Jai Ho passes the crucial ‘Monday test’. Collects Rs 9.50 cr. Total: 70.18 cr nett. India biz only” posted Adarsh.
Remember the old adage – slow and steady wins the race? Look like that’s the case with SK’s new film, hai na?
