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.

Pahlaj Nihalani: Won’t Certify ‘OK Jaanu’ Keeping ‘Befikre’ In Mind As A Yardstick

Filmmaker Karan Johar can come to the censor board with Ok Jaanu without worrying, says Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani, who wonders why he is called corrupt if he doesn’t “cut the kisses”.

Netizens have spoken out about “double standards” being displayed by the censorship board and have raised questions on how and why the kisses in Spectre, Tamasha and “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” were curtailed/deleted when now “Befikre” gets away with lots of kissing.

KJo can come to CBFC ‘befikre’ with ‘Ok Jaanu’: Pahlaj Nihalani

Gossip mills have it that money has exchanged hands.

But Nihalani laughs it off and says, “So, I am corrupt if I don’t cut the kisses. I am corrupt and ‘sanskaari’ if I cut the kisses. I might as well go with the first option.”

The makers of the forthcoming Ok Jaanu, co-produced by Karan’s Dharma Productions, are said to be now looking at a more liberal approach to their film.

But Nihalani is not biting the bait.

“The film that you mention has not come to us as yet. And we are certainly not going to certify it keeping ‘Befikre’ in mind as a yardstick. Nothing like, ‘Agar uske paas 20 kisses hain toh mere paas 10 (‘If they have 20 kisses, we have 10’.) Every film will be certified on its individual merit,” he said.

Clarifying his stance on a perception being projected within the film industry that the CBFC has a soft corner for Aditya Chopra’s Yash Raj Films, which has produced “Befikre”, and not such a soft corner for Karan’s banner, he said: “You mean because we cut the kisses in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and not in ‘Befikre’?”

“Firstly, let me make it very clear that there was no kiss between Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to cut in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. Yes, we did cut the kiss between Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma because we felt that the kiss was unduly prolonged.”

“Secondly, when his film was in trouble over the presence of a Pakistani artiste, I was one of Karan’s most vocal supporters. Karan is the son of my old friend, the wonderful Yash Johar who was one of the most upright and kind souls in this film industry. Karan is like my own son.”

“Let him come to the censors with ‘Ok Jaanu’, ekdum befikre. We’ll do whatever is the right thing to do.”
