Jai Ho won’t click any more, say trade pundits

Trade experts say in comparison to the star's previous films, this won’t create any fireworks in terms of records. Reportedly made on a budget of Rs 75 crore, Jai Ho hit about 4,500 screens in India. It collected Rs 17.55 crore in the country on Friday, according to an official statement. ‘As per my knowledge, it’s less than Rs 17 crore. The figure is quite low,’ Rajesh Thadani from Multimedia Combines said.

‘When Ek Tha Tiger released in 2012, it collected around Rs 30 crore on its opening day. It’s Republic Day today (Sunday), so the figures will be better. But it is expected to earn maximum Rs 25 crore,’ he added.

Directed by Salman’s brother Sohail, the movie, which also stars newcomer Daisy Shah along with Tabu and Danny Denzongpa, is a political thriller with a heavy dose of action sequences featuring Salman. Coincidentally, Salman’s super hits Wanted, Dabangg, Dabangg 2 and Ek Tha Tiger- were all action-packed dramas. And Jai Ho too belongs to the same category.
