Jai Ho has again started slow on Thursday (7th Day) Morning shows and there is still no significant jump in numbers on Noon and Afternoon shows. Film just showed decent numbers on Monday and after that has registered noticeable drop with each passing day. From early trends it is looking like in all probability Jai Ho first week collection will remain under 90 crore nett mark. Film is heading for 87-88 crore nett in the first week. Film had a good opening weekend of 60 crore nett, but weekdays have faltered badly.
Now all major hopes are remaining on second weekend business as there is no major opposition. Jai Ho is one of those rare films which have made one of the biggest profit for the makers as it was sold for astronomical price to Eros. But Eros and other sub-distributors are fighting hard to recover their cost. Eros might recover their cost in final tally as they have also sold the film for hefty amount to sub-distributors.
Still there is enough time and screens left for Jai Ho to collect significant, but whether it will in coming days is a big question. Also, Salman Khan string of 5 Blockbusters is looking like coming to an end with Jai Ho. Trends suggest film will at most be a Hit at box office. Looking in positive side, film is at least heading for Hit (Semi Hit) status and 100 crore club. It is not a outright Flop or Disaster by any means. Only thing is film has failed to match upto the last few releases of Salman Khan at box office.
