Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor starrer Jug Jug Jio is doing great at the box office. Directed by Raj Mehta, this family show is a crowd pleaser. After giving an opening gross of 9.28 crores on Friday, the film crossed the 35 crore mark by the opening weekend. On Sunday, the film has earned around 15 crores.
Jug Jug Jio received a positive response from critics. The film has shown an average performance in advance booking but is pulling the audience to the theaters with the opening. Especially in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, there has been a significant increase in the numbers of the film.
Akshay Kumar will now be a part of a comedy film – Khel Khel Mein, can it be announced soon?
All trade pundits are now watching Monday’s numbers as they will decide how far this family entertainer will go. However, as the audience response is positive, it is expected to reach 6-7 crores. The peculiar thing is that given the budget of the film, it needs to reach the 100 crore club to be a hit.
Let me tell you, before the release of the film, when Varun Dhawan was asked about the box office prediction, the actor had said, “Honestly, no matter how much we guess, analyze and predict a film, but the truth is there is no formula and no one knows what works in the till. We’ve seen that lately. Especially after covid things have changed but the only thing that hasn’t changed is that people still like to go to the theater and watch funny movies.
However, Jug Jug Jio is now all set to be included in the few hit Hindi movies of this year. This year’s Bollywood hits and superhits are Gangubai Kathiawadi (Rs 128.89 crores), The Kashmir Files (Rs 252.50 crores), Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 (Rs 184.32 crores, so far).
