Jagga Jasoos 1st Weekend Box Office Collection Report: Shows Good Trend


After earning a decent amount of money on its first and second day at the Indian Box Office, Jagga Jasoos has shown growth on its third day as well. It has earned 13.07 crores on its Day 3. With the aid of this impressive growth, Jagga Jasoos brought in 33.17 crores throughout its entire weekend. Despite such good numbers, Jagga Jasoos need 65 crores to get the hit tag. Thus, weekdays are going to be crucial for the Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starer film.

Talking about the high budget of the film, trade analyst Girish Johar said:

”Makers could have cut the cost of production by 50%. If the film wouldn’t have been delayed, Jagga Jasoos would have a cake walk at the box office.The film is getting a lot of traction from children and families. Usually, families avoid watching the film during the evening. So I am expecting 10-20% jump on Sunday, a crucial day for any film. I am also expecting the film to collect an ideal Rs 35 crore during the first weekend. But we will have to wait for Monday to decide the final fate of the film.”

The film is made on a budget of 110 crores including total costs required to make the film. Delays were one of the main reason behind the high budget. A source further stated:

”The film should have been made in Rs 50-60 crore. The film was also shot multiple times. Ranbir Kapoor and Anurag Basu didn’t have a script in hand and they were shooting the film on Anurag’s instinct. There was also an entire song shot on Govinda. That track was also reshot and eventually taken out. All this must have increased the budget.”

Jagga Jasoos has received mixed to positive reviews from the audience as well as critics. Despite such dueling circumstances, it has sustained well during its first weekend. It should maintain its growth rate in weekdays as well to register a good lifetime total at the Indian Box Office.
