Priyanka Chopra starrer Jai Gangaajal has a reasonable start at the box office. The film did manage to improve after a poor start. There was some growth in the night shows also which helped Gangaajal 2 1st day collection to go slightly higher.
As per the official figures Jai Gangaajal 1st day box office collection is 5.50 crore. The film had a poor opening in the morning shows. The overall occupancy was 10-15%. As expected the opening was better at single screens. As the day progressed, it showed decent growth. The occupancy in the evening shows was around 30-40%.
Jai Gangaajal 1st day collection is lower than Priyanka starrer Mary Kom which was another female-centric film released in 2014. Gangaajal 2 box office collection is an under-performing result on its day 1. The film was released on over 2600 screens. Thus it was the biggest release of this year. But it had pretty less buzz before the release. Priyanka Chopra was busy in the shooting of her Hollywood debut Baywatch and did not come to India for promotions.
As expected Jai Gangajal has done its best business in Central India and UP. Actually the film has a chance to score very well in these places. But it also has to show some growth in other places also. The film has received mixed reviews but the word of mouth has been on the positive side. So it is expected that film will take a good jump on Saturday and Sunday.
