The Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal is continually failing to sustain at the Indian box office. The film started off on an average note previously collecting 15.25 crores on its first day which was far below the trade expectations. Following the poor first day, it brought in 15 crores and 15.50 crores on its first Saturday and Sunday respectively. Continuing the disappointing run, the movie further drops on its first Monday as it collected only 7.15 crores which takes its total to 52.90 crores.
As a matter of fact, this is Shah Rukh Khan’s most dull film in recent years. Whether it is the opening of the film or the opening weekend, the movie has failed to match his standards by all means. Even Raees that released earlier this year earned 59.83 crores despite facing competition from another big film like Kaabil. This fact narrates the tale of Jab Harry Met Sejal and its disappointing performance.
The movie needs to stay stable on weekdays and hope to sustain in the second week as well to post a respectable total. However, with the kind of word of mouth the film is carrying, it looks like it is going to further drop on weekdays and finish its run in the second week itself as Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is releasing next week. SRK has disappointed his fans yet again with his script choice. Though, it is surprising how Imtiaz Ali could direct a film like this.
On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan would love to forget Jab Harry Met Sejal and focus on his upcoming movie with Anand L. Rai that also features Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. On the other hand, Anushka Sharma will start gearing up for his upcoming production film ‘Pari‘.
