The show schedule for next week is out now and Jayeshbhai Jordaar has a bare minimum of showing for himself. There are barely one or two shows booked at multiplexes across the country in the second week and that’s not at all surprising, courtesy of the very poor response in the first week. With the new releases of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Dhaakad, most of the screens and programs have been allocated there. In fact, even Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has a much better display as it has some premium displays going for it.
Ranveer Singh’s leading man is currently in Rs 16.50 crore* and although the first week could well close at 17.50 crore, the lifetime total will remain below the 20 million rupees Frames. It turned out to be a forgettable affair for everyone involved, and for Yash Raj Films, it’s the closure of their portfolio of mid-budget films, others being Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Bunty Aur Babli 2.
The good news is that its upcoming release stars Akshay Kumar, Prithviraj, and things are looking good for the period action drama that has everything it takes to make a big show on the big screen. This would be followed by Shamshera and that film will also mark Ranbir Kapoor’s return to the big screen four long years after Sanju. . With these two back-to-back big-budget movies coming up, there’s a lot in store for Aditya Chopra, who will be looking to make things better before he arrives with Tiger 3 and Pathan next.
*Dear All. Expected final numbers.
