Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s Jagga Jasoos finally hit theatres two days ago. The adventure drama was one of the most awaited films of 2017 because it was to bring ex couple – Ranbir and Katrina onscreen after their infamous break up, the film was in the making for almost four years and it was by Anurag Basu who last gave us something so memorable as Barfi! However, Jagga Jasoos did not open too well at the box office on the opening day. Jagga Jasoos made Rs 8.57 crore on Friday.
Despite mixed responses from the audiences and critics, the film is expected to pick up over the weekend. On Day 2, Jagga Jasoos earned Rs. 11.53 crore, taking the two day collection to Rs. 20.10 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the box office collection of Jagga Jasoos and he wrote.
Ranbir Kapoor’s performance has received a lot of accolades despite the story line of the film. The plot of the film revolves around Jagga (Ranbir) on a lookout of his missing father. Despite, the news of his father’s death, Jagga is convinced that his father is alive and starts finding him with he help of journalist Shruti (Katrina). A little before the release of the film, Ranbir Kapoor had told at a press event that he would pay back the distributors if his film failed to do well at the ticket windows. Salman Khan began this trend of paying back to film distributors. The superstar has agreed to pay Rs 55 crore to the distributors because his last release – Tubelight failed to set the cash registers jingling.
