Opening Weekend collection: ‘Jagga Jasoos’ earns Rs 33.17 crore

Anurag Basu’s directional venture ‘Jagga Jasoos’ strikes the right chord among the audience. The film has been able to drag audience to the theatres and earned a promising weekend collection at the ticket counter. The film earned Rs 33.17 crore in the opening weekend. Strong word of mouth and positive critical reviews worked in favour of the film.

Trade Analyst, Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the weekend, figures. “#JaggaJasoos had ? 33 cr+ opening weekend, witnessing growth on Sat and Sun... Plexes of metros contributed largely to the biz. (sic),” he tweeted.

"Weekdays are crucial for #JaggaJasoos... High costs + mix word of mouth are deterrents... Has to score on weekdays + Weekend 2 to sustain. (sic),” he further added.

Taran Adarsh also tweeted about the three days box-office collection in numbers. “#JaggaJasoos Fri 8.57 cr, Sat 11.53 cr, Sun 13.07 cr. Total: ? 33.17 cr. India biz (sic),” read another tweet.

‘Jagga Jasoos’ is receiving great response and is slowing making up to the box-office chart but the film has long way to go to recover the production cost. ‘Jagga Jasoos’ is made on a exorbitant budget of Rs 110 crore. 

Recently at an event, Ranbir Kapoor promised to compensate the loss for the distributors if ‘Jagga Jasoos’ failed. "Personally, if my film fails and I am making money out of it, then I will pay back the distributors. It has been going on since my grandfather's (Raj Kapoor) time in 1950s. The style of making films where everyone makes money, not just the producers but also distributors and exhibitors. It is a healthy exercise. If someone loses money on something and you have made money out of it, it's good to compensate. Like when Mera Naam Joker released, distributors incurred losses. So when Bobby released, my grandfather gave a bigger share to the distributors than the exhibitors,” said Ranbir

‘Jagga Jasoos’ is the story of Jagga played by Ranbir Kapoor in search of his missing father and helping him in his mission is journalist Shruti aka Katrina Kaif.
