By Goher Iqbal Punn, Film Critic & Entertainment Analyst, Showbiz Bites

jai ho still-01-showbizbitesJai Ho 1st day box office collections reveal that the film has done really well rather brilliant at the box office. The film opened to brilliant and massive occupancy of around 95 to 100% in the morning shows. Well, Jai Ho 1st Friday box office collections are really heart-hitting and magical. The movie received around 17.50 crore. The sources reveal the movie, which was expected to do far better in later shows of the day, could not bring up the occupancy in evening and night shows, as the expectations were. Therefore, the business could not emerge according to the expectations on 1st day in domestic market. Well, Salman Khan now even could not break his own records of previous blockbusters like Ek Tha Tiger. The opening day business could not sparkle up the business and hence Salman had to disappoint though the business is remarkable if we single it out from the comparisons with Salman Khan’s previous endeavors.

The expectations from the opening day in India were around 28 to 33 crore, but Jai Ho 1st day box office collections went contrary to expectations due to the later shows of the day and the poor business from North India. Jai Ho 1st Friday box office collections are lower than Salman’s previous blockbuster successes like Ek Tha Tiger, as it is now revealed from the business reports. But it seems that the film will gain momentum on Saturday (2nd day) and in particular on Sunday making the opening weekend lucrative. But nothing could be predicted, as the film’s opening went against the predictions and expectations.

The business in North India has been reported dull and continues being the same till the latest reports, but the rest of the country produced gigantic results such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi, Ahmadabad and Pune (both on single screens and multiplexes, but single screen’s reports are higher than multiplexes). Around 15 to 20 shows are running a day in all major cities. Tickets’ prices are low to get more audiences to theaters. All business gimmicks have been used to gain abundance of masses to theaters. But if we carefully judge the business, the low ticket price too can become the hurdle in gaining more business. Well, that’s not the actual matter. If Dhoom 3 can make it big with high ticket prices, then why not Jai Ho with low ticket rates because with low ticket price, masses come more to theaters than higher prices.


Jai Ho 1st Friday box office collections are nice but not satisfactory for Salman and the investors for sure. The opening weekend will decide the actual fate of the movie.

Early Trends of Jai Ho 1st Day Box Office Collections Prior to Release:

Jai Ho 1st day box office collections will be dashed off at this page once the movie releases on 24th January and the business winds up. Well, as per the expectations, Jai Ho 1st Friday box office collections will be in between 28 crore to 33 crore (approximately). Although the movie is not expected to surpass Dhoom 3’s 1st day business, but Salman Khan can surely surpass all of his previous movies’ 1st day business with Jai Ho. But the macho man seems to have fears of losing at the box office this time around. He showed his fears about box office dull for Jai Ho in the media. Now whether he is not sure of the good content of the movie or he knows the flaws the film carries, this all will be dished out to all of us once the movie hits the screens.


If the movie carries the flaws and Salman’s fears turn out to be true, then the first day’s business of the movie could be lesser than the expectations. But since Salman Khan’s stardom is much higher and he is considered to be the box office igniter, the opening occupancy could really be simply awesome and magical with housefull tags pasted outside the theaters. Jai Ho 1st day box office collections, as per the expectations and Salman’s big stardom, would be really giant, as mentioned in above lines.

Film’s distribution rights have been bought by Eros International for 120 crore. Movie is going to be released in 5000 screens (approx.) in India and 600 screens (approx.) in overseas market. Jai Ho was made with a whopping budget of 60 crore excluding Salman Khan’s fees (as it is a home production). Jai Ho 1st Friday box office collections are expected to be record-breaking of Salman’s previous movies.
