Trading analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest figures for the film directed by Raj Mehta, tweeting Thursday: “#JugJuggJeeyo crosses 50 cr on day 6… Stable at national chains, but remains weak outside metros and also mass circuits… Fri 9.28 cr, Sat 12.55 cr, Sun 15.10 cr, Mon 4.82 cr, Tues 4.52 cr, Wed 3.97 cr. Total: 50.24 cr. #Indian affairs.”
JugJugg Jeeyo had an impressive opening and it made 37 crore at the domestic box office, in the first weekend. The checkout collections on day one were: 9.28 crores, 12.55 crore on day two, and 15.10 crore on day three, putting the opening week number on 36.93 crores. The numbers fell Monday, as the film saw collections plummet by 50 percent. Since then, the collections have been declining.
Created by Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions, JugJugg Jeeyo is a comedy drama that tells the story of a family, in which the father (Anil) and son (Varun) plan to separate from their partners.
The film marks Prajakta Kohli’s Bollywood debut. It also marks the return of Neetu Kapoor to the big screen, after a nine-year hiatus. She was last seen in Besharam (2013), in which she starred with her late husband, Rishi Kapoor, and their son Ranbir Kapoor.
About the kind of film that works at the box office, director Raj Mehta had told PTI earlier in June: “Every week new theories come out about what kind of films will or will not work. Some say the trend is for big movies, others say it’s not quite the case. There’s a lot of uncertainty, I don’t think anyone knows what’s going to work. Does that contribute to the anxiety? Absolute. Because you can never be sure that you’ve made a movie that’s going to do well. This is my second film, I’m following up on a successful debut, so there’s that pressure too. But the times are such that you don’t know what’s going to work.”
