The hype of the movie had made it clear that it would definitely cross a 100 Crores mark. But how soon that would happen was the only question? And living up to the expectations of the masses, Jab Tak Hai Jaan did the same but not with a bang, having taken 11 Days to reach the 100 Crore Club. The movie showed a considerable drop when it made 2.75 Crores on its 2nd Friday at the domestic box office. However, the 11 Day domestic total of Jab Tak Hai Jaan now stands at 100.75 Crores.
Anticipations were that the movie would cross 100 Crores in merely 6 days. However, due to unforeseen incidences, mixed reaction from audiences and stiff competition from Son of Sardaar, Jab Tak Hai Jaan couldn’t make it earlier than 11 Days. This means that Salman Khan is still leading with Ek Tha Tiger and Shah Rukh Khan’s fastest 100 remains Ra.One which took 10 Days to make 100 Crores.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan shares the 11 Day record with Agneepath and Rowdy Rathore. However from the looks of situations it is unlikely for the movie to beat their overall nett collection in India. Overseas might be a different situation as Jab Tak Hai Jaan is doing pretty well having already made 52 Crores plus in 10 Days. This also gives Shah Rukh Khan his 3rd movie in the India Box Office 100 crore club after Ra.One and Don 2.
With Jab Tak Hai Jaan joining the 100 Crore club, this list now contains 16 movies. We will soon have to come up with a 200 Crore club now or so it seems.
