Jab Harry Met Sejal opening day Box office collection and occupancy report
It is quite obvious that Bollywood is currently going through a rough time and at this point eyes were at Imtiaz Ali‘s Jab Harry Met Sejal. The film passed the censor board test with U/A and released this Friday across 3200 Indian screens. Unfortunately, this Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer romantic comedy cannot play the savior.
Jab Harry Met Sejal first day occupancy report
Jab Harry Met Sejal opened with low occupancy throughout the country. In some places, shows had to be even cancelled or delayed for an hour or so due to the lack of audiences. Noon shows too witnessed no such growth and the occupancy remained 37.5% for 3200 screens which is lower than Raees. Interestingly, Salman Khan’s Tubelight too opened with 37.5% occupancy in 4350 screens which can be said a better opening than Jab Harry Met Sejal considering more screens and Pre Eid time frame. Evening and night shows badly need to witness great jump for a decent first day Box office collection.
Jab Harry Met Sejal first day collection prediction
There is sadly no sign of Jab Harry Met Sejal to do wonders at Box Office. The occupancy is already very low but more importantly, the audience’s reviews or Words-Of-Mouth for the film are more negative while reports are that audiences are leaving the theatres in the middle itself which is not a good sign for the film at all. The subject that Imtiaz chose for Shah Rukh can only be appreciated in some of metros and not by the mass audiences.
Well, coming to the numbers, Jab Harry Met Sejal will do a business of 16-17 Crore on its first day where only great occupancy in night shows can possibly boost the collections. So, Jab Harry Met Sejal is SRK’s weakest opening in recent years, weaker than ‘Fan’ and last released ‘Raees’, even weakest opening for any 3 Khans in recent years.
Talking about the overseas domains, Jab Harry Met Sejal performed really well on the first day in UAE. But again, the number of audiences will break down right from the next day due to bad reports. Too early to talk about but under this circumstances Jab Harry Met Sejal seems to end its domestic theatre run at 80 Crore which is right now looking so hard a task to perform.
