Jagga Jasoos Box Office Collection Prediction day 1: The much-awaited movie starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif is all set to hit the screens this Friday. Due to a number of reasons Jagga Jasoos is predicted to make better than average business. These multiple factors are coming together of a star couple combination (Ranbir-Katrina) and successful director-lead combination (Ranbir-Anurag Basu). Ranbir’s last release, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, a commercial release, had a good opening at Rs 13.3 crore despite a clash with Shivaay. This time the movie has no competition on box-office. Anything less than Rs 8 cr on opening day will be a disappointment for Jagga Jaasoos makers. That said, the movie is expected to make a fast-paced start as it is said to be a very expensive film and costs have escalated immensely.
The movie should first appeal to the critics, and then the audience and thereafter word of mouth will take over to ensure it lasts well into the second week, else it will be chalked up as a flop. If the movie reviews are kind to the stars, then the seeds for the first step to success would have been sowed. Why will it not do as well as Ae Dil Hai Mushkil? A number of reasons have been listed by Bollywood Hungama and among them are change in schedules, Ranbir and Katrina breaking up as a couple, absence of Govinda and Anurag Basu experimentation and even the fafct that there will be no extended weekend to bank upon. Directed by Anurag Basu, Jagga Jasoos features Ranbir Kapoor as Jagga, Katrina Kaif as Shruti, Saswata Chatterjee as Jagga’s father, Kiran Srinivas, Sayani Gupta as Little Girl, Saurabh Shukla as Teacher, Adah Sharma, and Denzil Smith in important roles. Having witnessed a masterclass in Barfi last time, let’s keep our fingers crossed and figure out what Basu has cooked for us this time.
