Advance booking specially in multiplexes for Evening and Night shows for Saturday is much better and one expect good jump in later half of the day. Still a long way to go and let's wait and watch how the film performs. Jai Ho is one of the Salman Khan films which has not opened Bumper across India and film content will drive it through the first weekend. Let's be positive and expect that film will end up with decent numbers in the First Weekend at box office.
