Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback film ‘Jazbaa’ that released yesterday, was off to a decent start and has managed to collect a decent amount as well. On its first day, ‘Jazbaa’ has collected Rs. 3.75 crores net approx (37.5 million). The film will have to depend a lot on word of mouth as only good reviews can help it thrive at the box office. Jazbaa’s run will depend a lot on its performance this Sunday which is expected to raise by 20-30%.
However, for it to keep its hold on the box office, ‘Jazbaa’ will need an increase of up to 50% in its performance on Sunday. As the film has a female protagonist as its lead, Jazbaa’s fate is dependent on whether or not audience like the story. On its release on Friday, the film was off to a slow start with a moderate occupancy rate of around 20% approx. As the film faces no competition being the only major release this week, ‘Jazbaa’ has a better chance of performing well.
The film is expected to pick up growth on Saturday. It has performed best in the metropolitan regions of Mumbai and Delhi. It has also shown promise in regions of UP. After a slow start and a moderate first day collection, we’re looking forward to see Jazbaa’s first weekend collection at the box office.
‘Jazbaa’ being Aishwarya Rai’s comeback after a long time has raised the audience’s anticipation. With a star studded cast and experienced direction of Sanjay Gupta, the film has created a lot of buzz. Irrfan Khan’s image of doing films with strong scripts will help attract the audience more. ‘Jazbaa’ tells the story of a strong independent lawyer played by Aishwarya, and the hardships faced by her to reunite with her daughter.
