The year 2017 has seen a number of flops and disaster over the box office and there would be more to come this year. However, if you talk about the recently released SRK and Anushka Sharma starrer movie Jab Harry Met Sejal, it was really a big disaster that turned disheartening than anything else in the past. The reasons were obvious as one cannot see a film by SRK to fall to such a low level in terms of collection. He has been ruling this world of B Town since past 25 years and the universal content of the display movie after film.
This film though had got a mixed reviews and it was promoted good in the media, yet it failed to garner the kind of response it was expected to get over the box office. First it was Tubelight, which failed to give the kind of impression it was expected to give over the box office and now it is Jab Harry Met Sejal. Now talking about the collection of the film, the first week box office collection for Jab Harry Met Sejal, it tolled to around 60 crores and if we add the collection of overseas, the collection further extends to a mere 10 crore additional amount.
And with the release of several new movies, the collection and sustainability of the film ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ will certainly going to depend a lot up on the content of the movie that has received mixed reviews from one and all. Imtiaz was candid enough to thank everyone over the Facebook thanking the people who liked his movie and came to catch the film. However, he simply added that he would continue to make film and embark with something really interesting for the audience. The fact is since demonetization has struck the menace of Indian economy, more and more films have turned bad and average over the box office. This age is called as a black phase in box office.
