JHMS releases today at the box office and everyone’s talking about Harry and Sejal. The craze is fantastic and as earlier reported by us the advance bookings are also holding up really well. The film has already done 6 crores in Advance Bookings for the first day which is fantastic news.
JHMS First Day Box Office collection is going to be very crucial for Shah Rukh Khan. Higher collection on day 1 ensures solid final figures for the movie. Because no matter how good the film is or shows growth later on if you don’t take a decent Initial your lifetime figures are going to be poor.
Public Word of Mouth
The Word of Mouth for this film is of utmost importance for Jab Harry Met Sejal. The Advance bookings have ensured the film will take a strong opening in the Morning. But if it has to pick up in the evening and Saturday, the word of mouth is going to play an exceptionally important role.
Track Record of Imtiaz Ali
Imtiaz Ali isn’t as successful as he used to be in his days of Jab we met and Love Aaj Kal. He has just failed in creating box office marvels with bad movies like Tamasha, Rockstar being duds at the BO.
We hope this poor track record changes with JHMS and it restores the public’s faith in Imtiaz Ali as the people’s director.
