It's raining money for Shahrukh Khan starrer "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" at the box office with its total collection crossing the ₹100 crore mark from just five days of screening.
"Jab Tak Hai Jaan," featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, was released in about 2,500 screens worldwide on Tuesday, on the occasion of Diwali, and has been going strong at the box office ever since.
Popular trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh has tweeted that the total earning of "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" from five days has crossed the ₹100 crore mark.
"Yes, #JTHJ *India + Overseas biz* crossed Rs 100 cr mark on Saturday," tweeted Taran.
"JTHJ" earned ₹6.48 crore in UK and Ireland, ₹12.18 crore from UAE and GCC, and ₹8.54 crore from USA and Cannada, taking the total overseas collection from Tuesday to Saturday to ₹35.20 crore ($ 6.38 million), revealed Taran Adarsh.
"#JTHJ Tuesday to Saturday *Overseas total* stands at approx $ 6.38 million [Rs 35.20 crores]. SUPERB," he tweeted. He had earlier revealed that the film collected PKR 93 lakhs from Thursday's preview and Friday release from the neighbouring country Pakistan, which is a record.
