Jagga Jasoos becomes Ranbir Kapoor's second worst opener in recent times after Bombay Velvet

Jagga Jasoos becomes Ranbir Kapoor's second worst opener in recent times after Bombay Velvet

Ranbir Kapoor‘s Jagga Jasoos might have been one of ambitious projects that he produced, but looks like it has fallen flat on its back! After a lot of delays, controversies and hype, the movie released on July 14 and opened to an average opening occupancy of 20-25 per cent across India. It managed to recover in the evening shows, but collected only Rs 8.57 crore at the domestic box office on day one. With that, Jagga Jasoos has now become Ranbir Kapoor’s second worst opening in recent times after Bombay Velvet! A lot was expected from JJ, but with such a bad opening, things aren’t looking good for the movie…

If you see the first day collections of Ranbir’s last few releases over the past five to six years, is it quite clear that Jagga Jasoos is his second worst opener. Rockstar (Rs 10.60 crore), Barfi (Rs 9.20 crore), Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (Rs 19.45 crore), Besharam (Rs 21.56 crore), Tamasha (Rs 10.94 crore) and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (Rs 13.30 crore) have had better openings than JJ (Rs 8.57 crore). Only Bombay Velvet (Rs 5.20 crore) has had a lower opening than his latest release. Considering that Jagga Jasoos has had such a poor opening and has got mixed reviews, the film might end up becoming one of his biggest flops yet.

However, with a good word of mouth publicity and the excitement in children to watch this film, Jagga Jasoos might be saved. Looking at the current trends, we expect the movie to rake in Rs 25-30 crore over the first weekend and around of Rs 60 crore in its lifetime run. This would mean, the makers of Jagga Jasoos would lose a lot of money. With a budget of Rs 100 crore, the film should at least collect Rs 150 crore at the domestic box office to register a considerable profit.
