Jism 2 Witnesses Record Drop at the Box Office
After a decent day 1 at the box office, Jism 2 fell flat on Saturday. It seems the hype Bhatts had created over Sunny Leone didn’t work any wonders for the film. Bad reviews and negative word of mouth publicity has finally taken its toll on Jism 2. The movie which had grossed a 7.30 Crores nett at the domestic box office on Day 1, fell down to a mere 4.50 Crores on its 1st Saturday. The total collections of Jism 2 as of now is 12.85 Crores.
What can be disastrous for the distributors is the fact that the box office was worse affected in regions where Jism 2 had taken a good start on Friday. Consider CI, CP and Rajasthan and you will realize that the movie witnesses a drop of over 30-40% on it’s very second day. This is indeed astounding as the box office collections generally increase on weekends.
As per claims the movie was made out of a budget of 6-7 Crores. Add to it another 4 Crores on publicity. The Bhatt’s it seems have nothing to lose in this game. However, the distributors which bought the movies for humongous amounts of money will suffer the most in this case. There is no reason to believe that Jism 2 will recover on Sunday. The movie it seems will end up a disaster at the Indian box office.
