Jumanji: The Next Level Box Office (India): Apart from Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani 2 and Emraan Hashmi’s The Body, another major release of the week is Dwayne Johnson starrer Jumanji: The Next Level. Though the movie witnessed a full-fledged release today across the country, yesterday there were paid previews held at several places.
Speaking about yesterday’s paid previews, Jumanji: The Next Level has earned an impressive total of around 1.30 crores, which speaks enough for the strong buzz the movie is enjoying amongst the audience. With good reviews and positive word-of-mouth pouring in, the movie might hit the bull’s eye on opening day i.e. today.
There are high chances that this fun-filled adventure flick dominate the new Bollywood releases and even last week’s Kartik Aaryan starrer Pati Patni Aur Woh.
