Salman Khan's Jai Ho had already done more than 100 crores business.
Salman Khan's Jai Ho had crossed 100 crores business. It took the film 9 days to do so. It was a bit longer time, because his film Ek Tha Tiger did it in 5 days. But the film had regained business and is destined to be blockbuster.
After almost a year a Salman Khan film had been released. Jai Ho had been released on 24th January, 2014, on a non-festival day. The film had collected 75 crores in 4 days.
Whenever the success of Salman Khan’s previous films are compared Jai Ho did not get the opening of Ek Tha Tiger. Actually Salman Khan had set his own standards so high that whenever his films are release there is too much expectation.
But there is a limit to box-office collection given by a star. Jai Ho had been directed by Sohail Khan. In this film Salman Khan had launched a new actress Daisy Shah. She had done very well in the film.
The theme of the film is very good. Salman Khan an ex-army man had told the persons whom he helped not to tell him thank you. Instead help 3 other persons, who in turn should help 3 other persons. The chain continues.
Tabu had played the role of the sister of Salman Khan. She did a fabulous job. Nadira Babbar played the role of the mother of Salman Khan. In the film Danny played the character of home minister and he wanted to kill the Chief Minister. Salman Khan carried the injured Chief Minister and got him cured and fought against the men of Danny.
There were cameo performances from Sunil Shetty and Genelia Desouza. Sunil Shetty played the character of a military major who saw Salman Khan helping children. In the last scene he brought a military tanker to help Salman Khan. Genelia De Souza played the character of handicapped girl who could not give her exam and committed suicide.
The music of Jai Ho was good. Shreya Ghoshal and Shaan’s song “tere naina maar hi dalenge” became super hit. Sajid Wajid’s tunes were impressive.
Salman Khan also showing public concern, did not allow to raise the prices of the film as well. So if the film had collected 75 crores in 4 days, if prices were increased by this time the film would have collected 100 crores.
If Salman Khan’s success story from Wanted is traced back, he just had had broken his own records. Dabaang 2 had broken the record of Ready. Ek Tha Tiger had broken the record of Bodyguard.
Jai Ho will do business of 150 crores.
