Jabariya Jodi managed to show some growth on Saturday with 4.25 crores coming in. On Friday the film had collected 3.15 crores so this is more than 30% jump. That said, it would helped the film if the numbers had jumped by over 50%. That would have given far better indications of a positive hold ahead.
The Prashant Singh directed film has collected 7.40 crores so far and with further jump expected today, the collections are set to go past 12 crores once the weekend is through. Given the merits of the film, this Ekta Kapoor production deserved better numbers at the box office since entertainment quotient is there.
For Sidharth Malhota and Parineeti Chopra, this is an important film and they would be waiting to see how it holds up during the weekdays. Numbers would need to be stable in days to come so that there is screen availability from Thursday onwards.
Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
