Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s latest film ‘Jai ho’ has managed to collect over Rs 60 crore in the opening weekend in India.
‘Jai Ho’ has garnered a mixed response from the audience and critics alike.
The movie, despite mixed reviews, saw a rise in the collections on Sunday, which was Republic Day.
Noted film critic Taran Adarsh gave the official figures, “#JaiHo Fri 17.75 cr, Sat 16.68 cr, Sun est 26.25 cr. Total: ₹ 60.68 cr nett. India biz only. Figures from my sources & confirmed with Eros.”
With this collection ‘Jai Ho’ stands at the 12th spot in top opening weekend grossers. Shah Rukh (with preview) and Aamir Khan had entered the Rs 100 crore club post the opening weekend with ‘Chennai Express’ (Rs 100.42 cr) and Dhoom: 3 (Rs 107.72 cr) respectively. In fact Salman Khan’s blockbuster film ‘Ek Tha Tiger had collected Rs 100.16cr in the opening weekend in 2010.
Trade analysts also believe that Salman Khan’s ‘Jai ho’ may not be able to collect the huge figures that were expected from it.
The Sohail Khan film also stars Tabu, Danny Denzongpa, Suniel Shetty and newcomer Daisy Shah.
‘Jai Ho’ is about the angst of a common man who has to fight against corruption to make ends meet.
