OK Jaanu Stays Low Over The Weekend, Dangal Keeps The Moolah Coming At The Box Office

A little over two years back when Daawat-e-Ishq had released, it had managed to have just an average weekend of 13.5 crore. Starring Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead role along with Parineeti Chopra, it was a musical romantic drama. Now in OK Jaanu, Aditya is playing a younger character which is also a lot more urban friendly. Moreover, Shraddha Kapoor is a much better established heroine and though she has a Rock On 2 behind her, she is also the one to be seen in a Superhit Baaghi less than a year back. The film has hardly seen any growth on 3rd Day (1st Sunday) with 13.80 crore coming over the weekend.

Both Daawat-e-Ishq and OK Jaanu are backed by premium production houses. Yash Raj Films made Daawat-e-Ishq while Dharma Productions (along with Mani Ratnam) has bankrolled OK Jaanu. Hence, expectations from the film were to have higher numbers than what have been eventually gathered. As a matter of fact if one compares the weekend numbers of OK Jaanu with Aditya’s own Aashiqui 2 or Shuddh Desi Romance (which again dealt with the subject of live-in relationships), this is how the film stands:

Shuddh Desi Romance 23.5 crore
Aashiqui 218.25 crore
OK Jaanu13.80 crore
Daawat-e-Ishq 13.5 crore

As for Dangal, it collected 4.65 crore* more on its fourth Sunday, which was pretty much on the same lines as what OK Jaanu has collected in its first Sunday (4.82 crores). Audiences have been clearly split between the two films and since OK Jaanu is primarily catering to the urban audiences, Dangal is facing competition with the very same segment while continuing to be more comfortable in the interiors.

Currently, Dangal stands at 370.5 crore* and one looks forward to yet another record of 375 crore been set before the Aamir Khan starrer enters in the fifth week.

*Estimates. Final numbers awaited for Dangal

Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources

OK Jaanu’s 1st Weekend Box Office Collections

Aditya Roy Kapur & Shraddha Kapoor starrer OK Jaanu had an average weekend at the box office.

As per early estimates, this romantic musical drama raked in around 14.60 crores in its opening weekend. It needs to remain steady at the box office in the weekdays to stand with a decent opening week collections.

OK Jaanu: 1st Weekend Box Office Collections

Since there is no big release in the upcoming week, the film has a good advantage to score for a long run at the box office.

Directed by Shaad Ali, the film also features Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson in key roles.

OK Jaanu Stays Decent, Dangal Rises Again At The Box Office

0

After three weeks of some powerful times in theaters, it is back to just about fair footfalls in theaters. There are two Hindi films currently in the running – OK Jaanu and Dangal. However, even the combined collections of both films haven’t managed to go past the 10 crore mark on Saturday. This when between them at least 2500 screens are booked, which means a capacity of around 25 crore in the offering. However, with less than 10 crore coming in, theaters are running at less than 40% overall capacity, which tells the tale.

OK Jaanu is the first release of the year and its growth from Friday [4.08 crore] to Saturday [4.90 crore] has been just about decent. Standing at 8.98 crore, the film has been fair though many urban romcoms with similar stage, setting, marketing, promotion, pitching and release have done better. It would all boil down to how Sunday footfalls emerge for the film as that would signify if the lifetime total of the film would eventually boast of a healthy number.

Box Office – OK Jaanu stays decent, Dangal rises again

Dangal saw some jump in numbers though with 3.15 crore* more coming in on Saturday after a fair Friday [1.95 crore], it has crossed the 5 crore* mark in its fourth weekend. One expects a good Sunday in terms of the absolute value for the Aamir Khan starrer which would further add on to its current total of 365 crore*. An All Time Blockbuster, it is continuing to chip in decent numbers, though one would have liked even higher numbers to come in, considering the fact that the competition has been minimal.

*Estimates. Final numbers awaited

OK Jaanu Shows Minimal Growth On Its 1st Saturday At The Box Office

Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor starrer OK Jaanu showed minimal growth on its 1st Saturday at the box office.

This romantic musical drama raked in 4.90 crores yesterday and now stands with the grand total of 8.98 crores.

Sunday will be crucial for this film, since the collections might get good boost due to holiday.

Directed by Shaad Ali, the film also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson in key roles.

OK Jaanu Has A Fair Beginning, Needs Some Push Over The Weekend

Around four years back when Aashiqui 2 [2013] had released, the film had collected 6 crore at the Box Office. The romantic musical starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor had turned out to be a rage as eventually it managed to do Blockbuster business of 85.4 crore. Further to that, though Aditya didn’t quite garner many successes, Shraddha emerged amongst the top promising newcomers with a flurry of successes. In 2016 though, both Aditya and Shraddha gave a disaster each as Fitoor took an opening of just 3.61 crore while Rock On 2 was one of the biggest disappointments ever with just 2.02 crore.

Now that Aditya and Shraddha have reunited with OK Jaanu, their film has not quite matched the collections of Aashiqui 2 but at least done better than Fitoor and Rock On 2. The film has seen 4.08 crore coming in and though the makers would have found themselves in a relatively more comfortably position had the numbers gone past the 5 crore mark, a start like this is still fair.

Box Office – OK Jaanu has a fair beginning, needs some push over the weekend

OK Jaanu has been made at controlled costs and since satellite, music and other digital rights would help a good chunk of recovery, theatrically even decent numbers would help it pull through. What it still needs though is some good momentum to build up from this point at the least. A weekend of 15 crore plus is the need of the hour, which means the Shaad Ali film would need some sort of push from here. Of course in the final tally it would do much better than both Fitoor and Rock On 2 since it hasn’t seen any negative remarks coming its way, one would have wanted a Hit beginning for 2017 with its first release.

As things stand today, one would have to wait for that for while before the biggies Raees and Kaabil arrive.

OK Jaanu Receives An Average Opening Day At The Box Office

Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor starrer OK Jaanu has opened with average numbers on its 1st day at the box office.

The romantic musical drama raked in 4.08 crores yesterday, which is quite fair since the film primarily targets towards metro cities and multiplexes.

The film should show good growth on Saturday and Sunday, to stand with decent opening weekend total at the box office.

Directed by Shaad Ali, the film is produced under the banners of Dharma Productions and Madras Talkies.

Not Box Office Numbers, Performance Is What Is Remembered Says Shraddha Kapoor

Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor who is looking forward to her upcoming release “Ok Jaanu” opposite Aditya Roy Kapoor says that the recognition of an actor is not totally dependent on the film’s box office fate but their performance.

“You will be remembered for your performance as an actor in people’s mind. Many times, the film does not do well at the box office… that is the fate of the film, and we cannot control that, but good work will be appreciated by our audience,” Shraddha told the media here alongside her co-actor to a query about the failure of their last release.

Your performance is what is remembered, says Shraddha Kapoor

Seconding her opinion, Aditya said: “I think our fate changes in every Friday. I have seen both the side of it. In the beginning of my career, three of my films did not do well; then two films (“Aashiqui 2”, “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani“) released in the same year and both worked well. So as an actor we have to hang on, believe in ourselves and keep working with the best of our ability.”

Shraddha and Aditya are going through the same phase that happened back in 2013 before the release of their super hit film “Aashiqui 2” with their last releases – “Luv Ka The End” and “Guzaarish” respectively – being flops.

So, will “Ok Jaanu” be the comeback with a success for the on-screen couple?

“Well I think while casting us our director Shaad Ali must have seen something in us that fit us into the role, and it is an advantage that as on screen pair, audience loved us, so that can work in our favour,” said Aditya.

“As our on screen pairing was a hit, we got lot of offers after ‘Aashiqui 2‘, but those were not the right film for us, but we loved the script of ‘Ok Jaanu’. So we said yes to the film,” added Shraddha.

Directed by Shaad Ali, “Ok Jaanu” will be releasing on January 13.
