JAB HARRY MET SEJAL had a fall in business on the second day of around 5% which pretty much seals its fate as the weekend will find it impossible to reach 50 crore nett which is too low for a Shah Rukh Khan starrer. The collections on Saturday were in the 14-14.25 crore nett range. On the other hand the film could have dropped more on Saturday as it has a limited audience. Basically it will hold around these levels over the weekend due to Shah Rukh Khan box office clout but then go down fast over the weekdays. There is a holiday for Raksha Bandhan on Monday but its very likely the film could see a noticeable drop despite the holiday.
Friday - 15,00,00,000 apprx
Saturday - 14,25,00,000 apprx
TOTAL - 28,25,00,000
The business is poor all over barring Mumbai, Pune, Delhi NCR and Bangalore as these places held or gained on Saturday while it dropped in most other places. The SRK stronghold Kolkata also saw a drop in collections. Mysore is performing best for the film.
It will be the first Shah Rukh Khan starrer to go below 50 crore nett for the weekend since DON 2 in 2011. This is not counting the guest role in DEAR ZINDAGI. Even a FAN managed to collect 52 crore nett plus and that film was probably a little more niche than this as was devoid of music as well.
