A still from Jagga Jasoos.
On the day of its theatrical release, Jagga Jasoos earned Rs 8.57 crore followed by Rs 11.53 crore on Day 2.
"Jagga Jasoos" narrates the ups and downs of Jagga (Ranbir Kapoor) and Shruti's (Katrina Kaif) life as they embark on a mission to hunt for Jagga's father. That film garnered Rs 8.75 crore on its opening day and went on to cross Rs 100 crore, as reported by Koimoi.com.
After acquiring a jump of 30 per cent in its collections over the first weekend, analysts expect the movie to continue grow stronger at the ticket window.
Jagga Jasoos also stars Saswata Chatterjee, Sayani Gupta and Evelyn Sharma. Jagga Jasoos has earned a total of Rs 20.10 crore so far.
Ranbir's performance of Jagga is absolutely committed in a way that this role demands. "It's a Disney film catering to children and families", Girish Johar said. Makers have released the film in top cinemas which is a smart thing to do. As per early reports we received, the film had received 54% occupancy in the morning and coming to noon it is 68%. What has happened is that on Friday the limited number of people who saw it liked it enough to pass on the good word.
The lead cast, Ranbir, and Katrina both cooperated in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009) which was a Hit. The source says it took "herculean effort" to convince Katrina to promote Jagga Jasoos with a man who has lately left her emotionally battered. In fact, Twitterati is flooded with praise about Jagga Jasoos, so much so that the film is trending on Twitter. I wouldn't shy away of giving due credit to Katrina.
