Priyanka Chopra and Prakash Jha starrer ‘Jai Gangaajal’ had a low opening weekend. After a slow start at the Box Office with the first day collection of 5.5 crores, the movie hasn’t been able to pick up over the weekend. Jai Gangaajal collected 7.5 crores on the third day to take the first weekend collection to 19.25 crores. Jai Gangaajal is now the 6th highest opening weekend grosser of 2016 behind Airlift, KKHH3, Wazir, Neerja and Ghayal Once Again. (Read: Box Office Report 2016)
Jai Gangaajal Box Office Collection
Jai Gangaajal 1st day collection: 5.5 crores (6th highest of 2016)
Jai Gangaajal 2nd day collection: 6.25 crores
Jai Gangaajal 3rd day collection: 7.5 crores
Jai Gangaajal first weekend collection: 19.25 crores (6th highest of 2016)
As expected, the movie performed best in Bihar, UP, and CI. The movie had a poor performance in metros and multiplexes. On Sunday, the evening shows were severely affected by India-Bangladesh Asia Cup final. The movie has performed way below expectations. Ideally, the first weekend collection should have been more than 22 crores.
Despite positive WOM, the movie hasn’t been able to witness any growth over the weekend thanks to poor marketing and promotions. The collection could have been better if the promotions were carried on a large scale. The first weekend collection of Jai Gangaajal is less than other female-centric movies like Mary Kom, Neerja, and Piku.
Jai Gangaajal Budget and Box Office Analysis
The production cost of the movie is around 20 crores while another 10 crores were spent on advertising, printing and promotions. Thus, the total budget of the movie is 30 crores. Well, recovering budget will not be an issue. But to emerge as a hit at the Box Office, the movie needs to sustain well on coming days which looks highly unlikely. Jai Gangaajal is looking to end its Box Office journey with the lifetime collection of around 30 crores.
