The highly promoted and much-hyped Ranveer Singh starrer Jayeshbhai Jordaar was released last week on Friday. However, the film did not take off on a good note, with opening day collections recording figures in single digits. Released across 2250 screens Jayeshbhai Jordaar has failed to live up to expectations.
In this box office report, we look at the opening weekend collections of Jayeshbhai Jordaar while comparing the same to Ranveer Singh’s previous releases. Collecting Rs. 12 cr Jayeshbhai Jordaar ranks as Ranveer’s second-lowest opening weekend grosser, managing to surpass Band Baaja Baaraat, which had collected Rs. 5.20 cr. Surprisingly, despite the hype and promotions, the business of Jayeshbhai Jordaar does not surpass the actors' previous releases like Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl which collected Rs. 16.54 cr, Lootera collected Rs. 19 cr, Kill Dil collected Rs. 20.18 cr and even Befikre that collected Rs. 34.36 cr.
Going forward, Jayeshbhai Jordaar is not expected to see much change in collections. In fact, going by trade predictions the business of the film will see a drop in collections over weekdays, while facing an uphill task to post decent opening week collections.
