Jab Harry Met Sejal Advance Booking and Opening Prediction

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The last few months have been terrible for Bollywood film industry. The trade has suffered back to back failures like Tubelight, Jagga Jasoos, Munna Michael and Mubarakan. Neither the films are taking opening, nor the content is clicking with the audience. Now Bollywood is badly seeking for a hit film.

This Friday will saw the release of Shahrukh Khan starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal. Also starring Anushka Sharma, the film is directed by Imtiaz Ali. Even though SRK is going through a slightly bad phase, yet his all films have taken good initial and he will be hoping to do the same with JHMS.

The advance booking for Jab Harry Met Sejal is just about decent as approx 30% tickets have been sold so far. The film has fared better in Delhi/NCR and Hyderabad but it is way below the mark in Mumbai (15-20%). There is no competition in South India so it will open better there. Kolkata is decent but nowhere close to SRK’s other films. Overall the response is average but considering the genre, it is reasonable. Like most of the other biggies, the corporate booking has been done for JHMS too.

Rom-com urban films have a target audience and this is the case with Jab Harry Met Sejal. Ideally speaking the film had potential to open better but the promotional strategy has been a blunder from Red Chillies Entertainment. Still, there is Shahrukh Khan factor which has given the film an extra push. Also, music is a hit as songs are topping the charts.

Jab Harry Met Sejal will release in approx 3400 screens. We are expecting the film to open at 18.0 crore on the first day. This will be a good number for a rom-com film. The film will grow over the weekend if it is expected by its target audience.

      • @roric. Akshay jaisa fattu to nh h jo 18cr m movie bana k hit krra.. Star isko bolte h 150 hit hone ko lgte. Agr akshay ko 150 hit hone ko lgte to ek movie hit nh deta wo… ABH BH BHAI KA CRAZE WAISA HE H SALMAN SRK AMIR OR AKSHAY INAKE AJUBAJU B NH H. Acha hua akshay k movie ko 150 nh lgta hit ko wrna ky pta kb hit deta wo 150 to kr nh skta wo isse age ranver n ranbir h or kangana b h so sry iss b b utna he rhega uska 100ho he jayega bjp wle in k sth h or bhul he jao kbh khans k aju baju ayega

          @sahil pagal kahi k . Tu akki s jalta hai . Tere stars ne konsi hits de di hai. Big budget hone k bavjood bhi flop pe flop .
          Beta akki safe game khelta hai. Tu chahe fattu kahe par aaj to akki ka zamana hai. Pitty on u sahil. Poor nd frustrated fan .

        • Esa h to fir shahrukh ne kyu hata li apni movie akki ki movie samne se…..????
          Ab kon hua fattu ???

  1. Few hours left for King’s arrival!!

    #4thAug

  2. 18 cr will be a good start. Anything below 17 cr will be disappointing for me.

    • bombay just well below….kolkatta not intrested……only corporate booking……no one can save it….word of mouth will play so earlier…..after monday it will be crashed

  3. 🚬Gangs of Ajay Devgn🔫🔪 Reply

    Weekend should be around 60 cr + benchmark.

  4. Prashant abhishek Reply

    Expecting 20+ crore.it it collected 20 + then credit will surely go to SRK’s star power considering genre, limited appeal,average advance booking, working day release.

  5. Aamir new tweet Kiya Hai to pakka movie ko fayda hoga. 😘

    Mera prediction
    JHMS-145cr..

    Agar story entertaining rahi to samjo 150cr par

    Best of luck Srk n Srk fans. 😍

  6. I watched Srk n anushka on chala Hawa yeu dya.

    Maza aagaya 😍
    Bass sabhi ko Marathi sikhni chahiye.

    Itne sal Mumbai me rahke Marathi nahi aati Akshay ko dekhlo mast marathi bolta hai.

    • Rakesh Chavan Reply

      To Maharashtra chya matit rul la aahe khup Anand hoto akki Marathi bolat astana .

  7. Srk haters suno ..aaj jhms ka bas preview hua gulf countries me or sb show housefull hai ..agar normal release krta tb soch lo kya hota …evening se show start hua hai or sb show housefull …bumper opening ….Srk overseas king as always
    Jisko yakeen na ho vo khud dekh lo

  8. Lets see which film better TEPK ya JHMS
    Which film do best business.
    My bet is always with JHMS.

  9. Nohur Hemant Reply

    The trailers and mini trailers have received poor response…. The collections should be verify more often because we cannot trust red chillies calculator…. this movie will be flopped or average

  10. LMAO… plz don’t give us excuse of Rom Com coz even YJHD with Ranbir kapoor (he wasn’t what srk is) crossed 19 crs on working day and grossed 170 crs overall…. so plz keep exxuses aside… and accept that film is mahacrap…
