It was a fair Monday for Jawaani Jaaneman as 2.03 crores came in. The film is hanging in there after Friday collections of 3.24 crores and though a higher number would have only enhanced its fortunes further, the fact that there hasn’t been a major fall is decent enough as well.
The Saif Ali Khan starrer has collected 14.86 crores so far and would be around 20 crores before the first week is through. Now had this been the weekend collections itself for the urban comedy-drama, it would have indicated a much bigger lifetime total ahead. For now, though, Jawaani Jaaneman could well be aiming for a 30 crores lifetime and that would help it gain a fair amount of respectability.
Saif Ali Khan would next be seen with Rani Mukerji in YRF’s Bunty aur Babli 2 and that one should be a biggie. On the other hand producers Deepshikha Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani and Vashu Bhagnani have their hands full with Coolie No. 1 coming in next and then Bell Bottom in early 2020.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
