Priyanka Chopra starrer Jai Gangajal which released yesterday had opened with moderate numbers at the Indian box office. On Day one, this crime-thriller directed by Prakash Jha has collected Rs 5.50 crore, which is an ordinary start lower than what expected.
Jai Gangajal Released with around 2684 screens across the country and approximately 300 odd screens in overseas, Jai Gangajal had received mixed reviews from the critics who applauded Priyanka’s performance as SP Abha Mathur but found lots of glitches in the story.
The film, which had made up of budget around Rs 20 -25 crore had witnessed low footfalls throughout the day with 30 – 40 % and it seems that due to lack of effective promotions have now affected the film in box office numbers. Priyanka Chopra has been missing from all the major promotional activities due to her Hollywood commitments and the film would suffer in long run.
If we compare the opening day collections of some other recent Priyanka’s films like Bajirao Mastani (Rs 12.80 crore), Dil Dhadkne Do (Rs 10.53) and Marry Kom (8.40 crore), Jai Gangajal remains lowest among all and also these are much lesser numbers of last few Prakash Jha’s films.
After this average show, Jai Gangajal has now to gain pretty well to get in some good numbers over the days ahead and it hope that the film would do some better performance in coming extended weekend as Monday is the holiday of Mahashivratri.
