Jab Public Met Harry & Sejal On Day 1: Film Collects A Good Rs. 15.35 Crore  At The Box-Office

Imtiaz Ali’s Jab Harry Met Sejal may have got a lukewarm response from critics and the public but the box-office figures on the first day are fortunately decent.

Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter to share the first day collections. He tweeted, “Fri ₹ 15.25 cr. India biz...Growth on Sat and Sun crucial for a respectable total.”
According to Taran, the film needs a good push on Saturday and Sunday for it to mark a big total over the weekend. Shah Rukh Khan has a great fan following and might pull the crowd to theatres solely on that factor and day 2 might see an increase in its collection.

Also, Imtiaz Ali’s romantic saga is likely to face stiff competition from Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, next week.

Film critic and author, Khalid Mohammed, labelled the film as gift-wrapped Bollywood bonanza. In his review with SpotboyE.com, he stated, “This gift-wrapped Bollywood bonanza doesn’t quite shine a light, or dare I say uplift your spirits. In lieu of deluxe entertainment, there you are with a bickering (for starters) twosome taking off on a wild goose chase. Quack, before it melts into tedium,”

Tough one for Shah Rukh Khan, Imtiaz Ali and Anushka Sharma- will their star power make a difference over the weekend?
