Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' has failed to impress the critics and the audience. The Imtiaz Ali directorial which was supposed to give box office a boost, has failed to live up to the expectations. On Monday, the film fell from Rs 15.50 crores to Rs 7.15 crores at the box office.
The film, directed by Imtiaz Ali, narrates the story of a tour guide Harinder Singh Nehra aka Harry (SRK) and lawyer Sejal (Anushka Sharma). Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office figure on his official Twitter account. He wrote, “#JabHarryMetSejal Fri 15.25 cr, Sat 15 cr, Sun 15.50 cr, Mon 7.15 cr [Raksha Bandhan]. Total: ₹ 52.90 cr. India biz… #JHMS”.
Later on, Taran in a series of tweets said, “Tubelight, JaggaJasoos, MunnaMichael, JabHarryMetSejal… Bollywood is going through the worst phase… Desperate for Hits. What’s shocking, the biggies aren’t fetching the desired start at the BO… Let’s NOT blame the audience… The problem lies within. The biggest of stars need a solid story and captivating screenplay to stand on feet, to sprint, to win… Mere star power isn’t enough. Post #Baahubali2, the biz has hit rock bottom… Will #ToiletEkPremKatha prove a saviour? Let’s hope it bails out the industry.”
