‘Jai Ho’ fails miserably at the Box Office

Superstar Salman Khan‘s ‘Jai Ho‘ has reached the 100 crore mark. The movie was released on January 24 but the trade pundits aren’t expecting this to set the Box Office on fire unlike Salman’s previous blockbusters which include ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, ‘bodyguard‘ and the ‘Dabangg’ films. For ‘Jai Ho’ has collected a mere Rs. 17 crores on it’s opening day – a figure that compares badly with the opening day collections of his other films.



According to sources, Superstar Salman Khan’s ‘Jai Ho’ collected over 100 crore in its opening weekend at worldwide Box Office. While gross in India is 78.90 cr, it raked 22.38 cr in overseas. Total worldwide gross is 101.28 cr. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: #JaiHo opng wknd: India *nett* Rs 60.68 cr, *gross* Rs 78.90 cr. Overseas *gross* Rs 22.38 cr. Worldwide total [gross]: Rs101.28 cr.

Here is Jai Ho area wise overseas box office report:

USA $ 643,059 [Rs 4.05 cr]
UK £ 245,246 [Rs 2.56 cr]
Canada $ 174,685 [Rs 1.10 cr]
Australia A$ 243,778 [Rs 1.34 cr]
UAE-GCC AED 4,800,000 [Rs 8.24 cr]
Pakistan $ 350,000 [Rs 2.21 cr]

But with first Shah Rukh Khan‘s ‘Chennai Express‘ and Hrithik Roshan‘s ‘Krrish 3‘ breaking Aamir Khan‘s ‘3 Idiots’ record to become the highest-earning Bollywood film, and then Aamir coming up with ‘Dhoom 3‘ to recapture his own record, Salman’s ‘Jai Ho’, isn’t expected to match these records. ‘Jai Ho’ is directed by Sohail Khan and stars Salman Khan with debutante Daisy Shah as well as  Tabu and Danny Denzongpa.
