Make way for the film of the year, The Jungle Book....
So as expected, The Jungle Book is turning out to be huge, hands down! Having some of the finest cast on board like Scarlett Johansson, Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong’o, Christopher Walken and Idris Elbato voice the realistic CGI animals along with a crazy awesome director like Jon Favreau and the little hero Neel Sethi, it couldn’t have got better, right? From the time the trailers have hit the web, it has only sparked one message, EXTRAORDINARY! In fact, not just the English version of the film but even the Hindi dubbed version has a spectacular cast with Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan Khan, Om Puri, Nana Patekar, Shefali Shah and Bugs Bhargava lending their voices to the iconic creatures. Well, turns out everything has insanely worked in favour of the film as we've just got the box office figures of The Jungle Book's day 1 collection, and boy, it seems to be enjoying a spectacular run at the ticket windows. Yes!
Trade analyst and movie critic Taran Adarsh just tweeted The Jungle Book's first day figures saying, "#TheJungleBook takes an AWESOME start. Audience feedback is SUPER! Fri ₹ 9.76 cr nett. India biz. What's INCREDIBLE is that #TheJungleBook is 2nd HIGHEST OPENER of 2016 *so far*, after #Airlift. Surpassing Bollywood + Hollywood biggies!" Yes, it's the second highest opener of the year after Akshay Kumar's Airlift which had a grossed a whopping sum of Rs 12.35 crore on Day 1. Whatta start to The Jungle Book!
Now it's left to see if The Jungle Book will further manage to race a spectacular run even in the coming week, considering Shah Rukh Khan's Fan is releasing on April 15. What do you think?
