Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra starrer Jabariya Jodi showed slight growth on Sunday at the box office but overall the romantic drama is below expectations.
Inspite of the hot jodi of Sidharth Malhotra And Parineeti Chopra from Hasee Toh Phasee (2014), audience are simply not interested in watching their latest flick, Jabariya Jodi. Aparshakti Khurana, who has done good roles in past with Dangal, Luka Chuppi and Stree joins them in Jabariya Jodi.
Jabariya Jodu, opened to a very poor response in the morning shows with just 5-10 % occupancy across India. The reviews have been lackluster which impacted the growth, consolidating the first day collections to just Rs 3.15 crore. There was hardly growth on the second day as the romantic drama registered just Rs 4.25 crore. As per early estimates, Jabariya Jodi collected a decent Rs 4.75 crore, bringing the three days total to Rs 12.15 crore. Jabariya Jodi will be 4th flop film in a row after Aiyaary (2018), A Gentleman (2017) and Baar Baar Dekho (2016) while it will be second film after Namaste England (2018) for Parineeti Chopra.
Jabariya Jodi is directed by debutante Prashant Singh, who assisted Anand L Rai in Tanu Weds Manu and Raanjhanaa and also has Sanjay Mishra and Javed Jaffrey starring in it. The budget of Jabariya Jodi is Rs 30 Crore (Production Cost: 22 Crore, Prints & Advertising Cost: 8 Crore)
