Jagga Jasoos had a dull Sunday at the box office. It followed the same pattern of showing a big growth on Saturday but falling flat on Sunday. It had grossed 33.17 crores on its first weekend and 43.75 crores in its 1st week.
Though the box office numbers are not great, the movie has managed to create a buzz and gain amazing reviews among the audiences.
Written and directed by Anurag Basu, The movie also stars Saurabh Shukla in a key role. It is produced by Anurag Basu, Siddharth Roy Kapur, and Ranbir Kapoor. It revolves around the story of a teenage detective in search of his missing father.
The business of Jagga Jasoos is as follows:
Week One – 43.12 crores
Friday – 2.60 crores
Saturday – 2.60 crores
Sunday – 2.65 crores
The film now has a total box office of 53.38 crores.
The film is, in fact, better than what Katrina Kaif’s last release Baar Baar Dekho had done in its entire lifetime [32 crores] and though the scale, budget, and expectations from both are poles apart, the fact still remains that there has been a start nonetheless.
On the other work front, Ranbir Kapoor has two big projects lined up. One among them is Sanjay Dutt’s biopic directed by Rajkumar Hirani, who previously helmed blockbusters like PK, 3 Idiots, and Munnabhai series. The film also features Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Paresh Rawal and Vicky Kaushal in key roles.
Katrina Kaif, on the other hand, will star in Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai. The film is a sequel of 2012’s blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger. It is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, who previously helmed films like Sultan, Gunday and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. It is produced under the reputed banner Yash Raj Films and is set to hit the screens on 22nd December during the Christmas weekend this year.
