Salman Khan movie ”Jai Ho” launched across 4300 screens approx in India and in over 700 screens overseas. The movie has the massive burden of box office records and Salman Khan has to make it into 200 Cr nett club with this after ”Chennai Express” and”Dhoom 3”.
The movie has taken an extraordinary opening in CI, CP and Mumbai with close to 90% occupancy. But south and north lagging behind with occupancy of 50% which isn’t great. Single screens in Kanpur, Surat, Lucknow, Pune and Delhi have nearly packed houses, but multiplexes aren’t up to the mark.
One should take into account the non holiday element. JAI HO will improve as the day progresses and good day one is on the cards. Jai Ho should easily cross 20 cr nett hurdle but anything above 25 cr nett will be a perfect outcome. As of now 23-25 Cr nett day one looks feasible, though this type of massive release and jump in the evening can change the situation.
