In its second week, Jai Ho was the preferred choice of the audience as it added further 20 crore in its kitty. With no major competition around it and the collections being stable, albeit on a lower side, the film managed to cross the 100 crore mark. Currently it stands at around 107 crores mark after its two week run and may just chug along for a few more days till the arrival of Gunday.
One By Two has turned out to be a complete washout at the box office, what with just around 2.5 crore coming in its first week run. As things stand today, the film would fall short of 3 crore lifetime, which is a pity considering the fact that it was reasonably promoted. In fact for Abhay Deol too, this must be a huge shock because he would have certainly expected these to be the collections on Day One, and not lifetime.
Of course one wasn’t expecting great jump from the film in terms of footfalls, considering the fact that it was aimed at a niche urban multiplex visiting audience. However with that segment of audience shunning the film as well, it was a game of no-show from the very beginning. Very disappointing.
