Jazbaa has taken a decent opening at the Box Office. The occupancy was expected to increase with every passing show and this is exactly what happened when footfalls saw an escalation in the evening and night shows, especially at the multiplexes. As a result, the film’s Friday collections stand at 4.23 crore.
With this, the film has taken one of the best opening amongst 2015 releases that have featured a woman as the central protagonist. Earlier this year, NH10 took an opening day of 3.35 crore and that belonged to similar genre. While the Anushka Sharma starrer went on to do good business at the Box Office, it has to be seen that how far does Jazbaa go from here.
The Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer has seen decent to very good reviews all over and the word of mouth is on the positive side as well with no one really disliking the film.
Since there isn’t much competition in theaters currently, Jazbaa has in it to grow reasonably well over the weekend and then sustain during the weekdays.
Comparison with other releases this year:
Jazbaa (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) – 4.23 crore
Ek Paheli Leela (Sunny Leone) – 4.2 crore
NH10 (Anushka Sharma) – 3.35 crore
Dolly Ki Doli (Sonam Kapoor) – 2.5 crore
Note: All collections as per production and distributor sources
