The Bollywood is looking for a desperate hit and all eyes are now set of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal.

Jab Harry Met Sejal First Day Occupancy Report
As per the early reports by Box Office India, the movie has taken a decent opening at the box office. As expected, the opening is best in the multiplexes of big cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore and Kolkata. Here the movie has taken the second best of the year after Bahubali – The Conclusion.
In other major cities, the opening is less than Raees and Tubelight. This was expected as it is an urban-centric movie. Such movies largely depend on the word of mouth and content.Jab Harry Met Sejal has been released on around 3300 screens which are even less than Shah Rukh Khan’s last release Raees (3400). Despite clash Raees with Kaabil, Raees was released on huge screen count but Red Chillies has played safe this time.In terms of occupancy, the morning shows of JHMS performed on similar lines as Tuubelight but less than Raees. Compared to other recent releases of Shah Rukh Khan, the morning shows occupancy of JHMS is less which is understandable as it is a content driven film.
Noon Shows Report
The movie remained flat in the noon shows. As expected, the occupancy in the single screens and mass centres was low. Multiplexes in metro cities gained some growth but still, there is a big scope for improvement.
Evening and night shows report
The movie witnessed huge growth in the evening and night shows thanks to the multiplex audience in the major metros of the country. The occupancy in big metro cities was as high as 70%. Despite mixed reactions, Shah Rukh Khan’s star power has worked for the film on the first day.
Jab Harry Met Sejal First Day Collection: Early Estimates
As per official numbers shared by producers, Jab Harry Met Sejal 1st day collection is 15.25 crores. It is the fourth highest opening day grosser of 2017 after Bahubali 2, Raees, and Tubelight. In terms of occupancy, the movie has performed on the same lines as Salman Khan’s Tubelight. The opening day collection of JHMS is less than Shah Rukh Khan’s recent films like Dilwale, FAN and Raees.
Talking about highest opening day grosser of Shah Rukh Khan, Jab Harry Met Sejal is at the seventh position. It fails to beat the opening day collection of Raees, Dilwale and even Ra. One and Don 2.
