WEEKEND COLLECTION: OK Jaanu Gets Lukewarm Response In Its First Three Days

The romantic film starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor has not had a great start at the box-office, collecting only Rs 13.80 crore on its first weekend

After hitting the bull’s eye with a popular soundtrack, the expectations were high from OK Jaanu, the first release of 2017, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor.

But the romance has not been able to pull in the crowds, collecting just Rs 13.80 crore over its first weekend.

The film which revolves around a couple who do not believe in marriage, was expected to strike a chord with the youngsters but most reviews slammed it as an insipid love story.(Movie Review: OK Jaanu, Sex OK, Kissing OK, Shraddha-Aditya OK But..., Jan 13).

Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh has tweeted the box office collection of OK Jaanu:

The film made Rs 4.08 crore on its first day (FIRST DAY COLLECTION: Aditya-Shraddha’s OK Jaanu Gets Lacklustre Opening At The Box-Office, Jan 14) and saw limited growth over the next two days.

It was affected on Sunday due to the much-awaited England-India cricket match.

OK Jaanu collected Rs 4.08 crore on Friday, followed by Rs 4.90 crore on Saturday and on Sunday made Rs 4.82 crore making it a total of Rs 13.80 crore.

But the good news is that Shraddha and Aditya’s OK Jaanu collected more than their previous films. Rock On 2’s first weekend collection was Rs 5,61,000 and Fitoor made Rs 3.61 crore.

Despite the intimate scenes between Shraddha and Aditya  and the music of AR Rahman, OK Jaanu did not open to packed theatres.

Over the weekend OK Jaanu also had to compete with Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood debut, xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, which also stars Vin Diesel, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa and Nina Dobrev. Then there was Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s indie flick Haraamkhor, which too released last Friday.

OK Jaanu is the official Hindi remake of Mani Ratnam’s critically acclaimed 2015 blockbuster OK Kanmani, starring Dulquer Salman and Nithya Menen.
