Jagga Jasoos Box Office Collections Reeling Under the Pressure of its High Budget
The much-awaited Disney India musical movie, Jagga Jasoos starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif released last Friday on the 14th of July, and rendered a rather poor day one collection. While some people loved the movie for its novel-like feel, others chose to give it a royal rejection. The film has a thorough Disney-feel, which some have embraced and others have ignored. So, what are the current stats saying, with the film’s ongoing box office collections? Well, the movie is minting better money now, wherein as per the stats, the collections saw a 30% jump right on the second day post the film’s release. However, as per trade experts, the film is expected to gross an estimated figure of Rs. 35 crores in its first weekend, but that won’t be enough at all to recover the huge cost of production that has been incurred for the film.
The film that has been made on a massive budget scale of around Rs. 110 crore, faced a lot of problem due to constant delays with its release, which had also contributed in the cost of production going high. According to some trade experts, the makers could have easily cut down the cost of production by 50% and if the delays wouldn’t have happened, then the film’s success would have been way easy. They also averred that since most of the traction for this movie is coming from kids and families, they would have to wait till Monday to make a final call on what’s in store for the film’s fate.
The movie however had a very good start in Pakistan, where on day one, it had better collections than Baahubali 2! It collected a total of 73 lakhs there, while Baahubali had collected 69 lakhs. But on second day, Jagga Jasoos’ figures went down in Pakistan as well. Well, now it will be a good wait to see how the overall verdict in terms of box office success of Jagga Jasoos turns out to be!
