Jab Tak Hai Jaan And Son Of Sardaar Neck To Neck On Wednesday
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network
Jab Tak Hai Jaan are now collecting neck to neck with both films collecting in the 3.75- 4 crore nett region on Wednesday.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan started with a 4 crore approx lead on day one and on day nine that lead has been totally cut by Son Of Sardaar. Although Son Of Sardaar will not get close in terms of overall business it may cut the the 16 crore nett gap between them by a crore or two over the next few weeks.
Both films are maintaining most of the screen space in week two with multiplexes just cutting a couple of shows and single screens practically same as week one.
Two markets have seen a turnaround, Gujarat and CP Berar, in both these markets Jab Tak Hai Jaan was stronger on day one but now Son Of Sardaar has edged ahead.
Both films have underperformed in some circuits. Jab Tak Hai Jaan is poor in Bihar and average in CP Berar, CI and Rajasthan while Son Of Sardaar is poor in West Bengal and Mysore and average in CP Berar and Nizam.
The key major markets of Mumbai and North have scored well for both films. Its the first time since Dil and Ghayal in 1990 that two films released on the same day have both succeeded and the gap in business is small (will be around 15% here). Normally in clashes, one film has run away with the box office be it only one film succeeding or two films succeeding.
