'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' Overseas Box Office Collection; Day One Result
By IBTimes Staff Reporter | November 14, 2012 6:03 PM EST
Shah Rukh Khan's much-awaited film "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" was released in India and several other countries on Tuesday but its overseas box office collection is not up to the expectations, as a midweek release seems to have affected the business.
"Jab Tak Hai Jaan" was released in about 2,500 screens worldwide on Tuesday, on the occasion of Diwali festival.
Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted that "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" collected A$ 77,334 (Rs 44.39 lakh) from 24 locations in Australia on the first day (Tuesday). He added that it earned £ 34,623 (Rs 30.21 lakh) from 25 locations in United Kingdom.
"#JTHJ opens to a fabulous response in UAE. Collects $ 325,000 on Tue," tweeted Taran, adding, "#JTHJ takes Singapore by storm. Collects S$ 96,000 on Tue."
The domestic box office collection of the film is expected to be huge, as a Diwali release with a superstar in the lead role is very unlikely to fail.
"PLEASE NOTE: #JTHJ and #SOS *India numbers* will be updated soon. Due to Diwali festivities, will take some time to get the *est* numbers," tweeted Taran Adarsh. "#JTHJ and #SOS Tuesday results in India: In mass circuits, #SOS is ahead. At multiplexes, #JTHJ takes a lead."
He went on to say that both "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" and "Son of Sardaar" will win at the box office.
"Jab Tak Hai Jaan" has Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. It is Katrina's first film with King Khan since she entered Bollywood in 2003 with "Boom".
Produced by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films banner, this romantic film marks the return of Yash Chopra as a director after a gap of eight years. The director passed away last month, just a few weeks before its release.
