Yash Raj Films’ Jayeshbhai Jordaar, drove by Ranveer Singh, had a forgettable first week at the box office with the end of the week numbers just around Rs. 12 cr nett. The film opened to career-low numbers in terms of ticket receipts for a Ranveer Singh film.
After an unfortunate first-day collection of Rs. 3.25 cr nett, Jayeshbhai Jordaar saw a little development in collections over the end of the weekend with a collection of Rs. 4 cr nett Saturday and Rs. 4.75 cr nett on Sunday. Medium budget content movies have found the going high post-pandemic since such content is preferred to be watched on OTT in the comfort of one’s home. All movies made for a niche set of crowds have met with a similar fate and it is unlikely for any film to break out in the near future because the audience is ready to wait for a few weeks before the content releases on OTT platforms.
The post-pandemic has been bad for Ranveer Singh as he has had two consecutive movies failing horrendously at the box office. Both the movies were gotten well fundamentally yet neglected to take care of a decent lump of the crowd. 83 figured out how to cross the Rs. 100 cr nett imprint yet it seems to be Jayeshbhai Jordaar will battle to try and reach Rs. 25 cr nett.
One week from now sees the release of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, is supposed to be the main film according to the trade analyst’s viewpoint. The result of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 will decide where the box office for Hindi films is headed.
