Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra starrer Jabariya Jodi showed a good hold on Monday at the box office due to the Bakri-EID Holiday on Monday.
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, followed by a slight growth on Sunday with Rs 4.60 crore. As per early estimates, Jabariya Jodi collected a good Rs 4 crore on Monday, bringing the three days total to Rs 16 crore.
The bad news is that Jabariya Jodi will have only 2 days left before the big clash between Akshay Kumar starrer Mission Mangal and John Abraham starrer Batla House will begin.
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)
