Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer movie 'Jagga Jasoos' picked up the steam after a slow start at the box office. The film has raked up Rs 13.07 crore and taking the first weekend collection to Rs 33.17 crore.
The film earlier saw 30% jump on the second day, reflecting a good trend among audiences. Trade pundits were expecting the film to collect Rs 35 crore during the first weekend. But latest figures suggest that film might not be bale to recover its cost of production. The high budget poses the biggest challenge for Jagga Jasoos.
Film trade expert Girish Johar told Indianexpress.com,”Makers could have cut the cost of production by 50%. If the film wouldn’t have been delayed, Jagga Jasoos would have a cake walk at the box office.The film is getting a lot of traction from children and families. Usually, families avoid watching the film during the evening. So I am expecting 10-20% jump on Sunday, a crucial day for any film. I am also expecting the film to collect an ideal Rs 35 crore during the first weekend. But we will have to wait for Monday to decide the final fate of the film.”
Jagga Jasoos is made on a staggering budget of Rs 110 crore. The delay in the film that was earlier scheduled for a 2014 release further exaggerated the problem.”
The film should have been made in Rs 50-60 crore. The film was also shot multiple times. Ranbir Kapoor and Anurag Basu didn’t have a script in hand and they were shooting the film on Anurag’s instinct. There was also an entire song shot on Govinda.
