One of the most awaited movies of the year, Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal will hit the big screens on 4 Aug 2017. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, Jab Harry Met Sejal is a urban-centric romantic comedy with a desi feel. Shah Rukh Khan fans are eagerly waiting for the film as their favourite star is back with what he is best at. The movie has created good buzz before release and we expect it to take good start at the box office. Let’s have a detailed look at Jab Harry Met Sejal budget, screen count, economics and other details.
Jab Harry Met Sejal Budget
The makers haven’t revealed any details about the budget, production and marketing costs of the movie. Still, we feel that the budget of the movie is less more or less same as Shah Rukh Khan’s last release Raees. Like every Shah Rukh film, the makers have spent a huge amount on JHMS marketing and publicity. Jab Harry Met Sejal Budget is around 95 crores including 25 crores o marketing, advertising and promotions. Shah Rukh will take profit share as he is the producer of the movie.
Jab Harry Met Sejal Screen Count
Jab Harry Met Sejal will be among the widest releases of Shah Rukh Khan. The movie is expected to release on around 3500 screens. With Toilet: Ek Prem Katha releasing next week, there will be a huge churn in the number of screens. JHMS has good one week to make it big at the box office. In overseas, the movie is expected to release on around 11 screens. The official screen count will be updated tomorrow.
Jab Harry Met Sejal Box Office Prediction
JHMS is one of the most awaited movies of the year. From trailer, promos and songs, it looks like a feel good fresh Indian film. Everything looks in the favour of the film except the fact that Imtiaz Ali’s last few films were complex and multiplex oriented. The biggest advantage with the film is Shah Rukh Khan. The actor is back with what he is best at. We can expect him to deliver a solid performance. Another advantage with the film is an extended opening weekend including big holidays like Janmashtami, Independence day and Rakshabandhan. If accepted by the audience, JHMS will be the biggest hit for Sah Rukh Khan. It will cross easily 200 crores mark. Here are our predictions:
Jab Harry Met Sejal first day collection: 21 to 23 crores
Jab Harry Met Sejal lifetime collection: 200+ crores (if accepted by audience)
