The sheen surrounding Salman Khan since the days of 'Dabanng', one of Bollywood's leading stars, seen fading as he has not been able to prop up the Jai Ho box office collections.
So, far from reaching the massive figure notched up by Dhoom 3, Salman Khan left his fans wondering about when Jai Ho will pass the first hurdle of Rs 100 cr, let alone reach the mammoth record set by Dhoom 3. The game of course is now over.
According to figures confirmed by the Eros International plc (Eros), Jai Ho's box office collections were Rs 102.58 crore with $16.3 million gross worldwide, despite its release on a non-holiday weekend.
"#JaiHo *actuals* Week 1 - 88.78 cr, Wknd 2 - 13.80 cr. Grand total: ₹ 102.58 cr nett. India biz only. Figures confirmed by Eros," tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
Jai Ho's box office collections have been Rs 88.78 crore for the first week (till Thursday) as far as India business is concerned.
‘Jai Ho’ had collected a 'meager' Rs 17.75 crore on its opening day. Though the film's business did pick up on January 26 and collected Rs 26 crore, it was unable to sustain it the next day. Aamir Khan-starrer Dhoom 3 has the highest opening day domestic box office collections record of Rs 36.22 crore.
Produced by Eros and Sohail Khan Productionz, the Salman Khan hit has appeared on approximately 5,000 screens worldwide starting on January 24, 2014.
Jai Ho also started on a slow note in the international arena. The film, however, picked up and fared exceptionally well in UAE-GCC region, Pakistan and USA-Canada with the collections of Rs 22.38 crore. Overall, it managed to collect $4.5 million (Rs 28.20 crore) till Wednesday. In Pakistan, Jai Ho collected Rs 2.21 crore in the opening weekend.
