Jagga Jasoos as a film was able to show healthy growth over the weekend. For it to remain stable, weekdays were essential. Previously, the film collected 8.57 crores on its first day before earning 11.53 crores and 13.07 crores on Saturday and Sunday. The film managed to stay decent on its first Monday as well collecting 6 crores*. Thus, taking its total to 38.22 crores* as of now.
This is the second time when Ranbir Kapoor collaborated with Anurag Basu for a film. They have worked together formerly in a movie like ‘Barfi’ which went on to earn 100 crores at the Indian Box Office. The duo would wish the same for Jagga Jasoos as well. Moreover, this was the first time when Ranbir Kapoor filled in producer’s shoes for a movie. Talking about his experience as a producer, he said:
“In the first year when we were working on the film, we thought about a TV show, a prequel like ‘Junior Jagga’ or a spin-off. But the film took a lot of time, and it was a hard film to make.”
Jagga Jasoos was a tough film to make according to the makers. The delays added further complications. Still, it has brought a new genre to Bollywood which is quite commendable. Despite the mixed reviews, the film is staying decent. As per the looks of the present situation, the movie will earn close to 50 crores in its first week. The recovery of the costs looks tough unless it shows additional growth throughout the weekdays and has a solid week two at the Indian Box Office.
Ranbir Kapoor has confirmed that makers are planning to opt for a sequel to Jagga Jasoos if the film manages to stay in the safe zone. With current situations, it’d be interesting to see what the film-makers will decide. The musical thriller also features Katrina Kaif in the lead role. It revolves around the pursuit of Jagga to find the mystery behind his dad’s disappearance.
