Jai Ho has started slow on 2nd Friday in Morning shows. Film opened to occupancy of around 15-20% on average across India. However film is showing some jump in Evening collections as occupancy is around 20-25%. Jai Ho has able to retain around 55-60% of the screens from the first week. If film shows good jump in Friday Night shows and through 2nd Saturday and 2nd Sunday, then decent second weekend can be achieved.
From early trends looking like Jai Ho will collect in the range of 4 crore nett for 2nd Friday. If jump is bigger in night shows then final tally may come higher than the expected range. Jai Ho has collected around 88 crore nett in the first week. Film is set to cross 100 crore nett by the end of Second Weekend as per early trends.
Jai Ho is fighting hard to reach Hit status at box office and for that this weekend is extremely crucial. As Hasee Toh Phasee is releasing next week, film this week collection is extremely crucial. Yes, Jai Ho may collect after that also, but it may not be that significant.
