Jab Harry Met Sejal Box Office Verdict: Hit or Flop: Shahrukh Khan’s latest release has failed at the box office. The writing was on the wall in the weekend but the trend on weekdays is worse.

Like most of the other biggies, JHMS is a heavily profitable for producers. The film was sold at 75 crores to the NH Studios. But the distributor share can be 35 crores at maximum and they will suffer a loss of 40 crores. Also, it is likely to be a failure when it will make a premiere on TV and digital platforms.

Costs:

  • Production Cost: 65 cr
  • P&A: 20 cr
  • Total: 85 cr

Recovery:

  • All India Theatrical Rights: 75 cr
  • Satellite Rights: 45 cr
  • Music Rights: 15 cr
  • Digital, Merchandising and Ancillary rights Rights: 35 Cr
  • Overseas Rights: 40 cr
  • Total: 210 cr

Distribution:

  • Distributor Price: 75 cr
  • Distributor Share: 35 cr (expected)
  • Verdict: Flop

The total non-theatrical recovery is huge for a film like Jab Harry Met Sejal. Though it is unlikely that the buyers will make much of a profit. The film is a flop in India just like Tubelight which made profits for the makers but was a loss for distributors. In overseas, the things are slightly better but it is not up to the expectations. The film needs to gross more than $12 million for emerging success in overseas markets which is looking tough.

Jab Harry Met Sejal is one of the lowest performance for Shahrukh Khan starrer. It will be a huge setback for the actor as he is unlikely to get such high prices in the future.
