A Flying Jatt had a poor first week collecting 33.50 crore nett in its first week.The weekday collections of the film had very low occupancy and it hardly added 6 crore nett over the weekend. The film is a setback to the career of Tiger Shroff whose Baaghi just 4-5 months back had taken the most effective initial of 2016 in that it was universal and excellent against the cost of the film. Here the biggest problem was initial, an action film just can’t afford to open to such low numbers as they can’t grow as well as content films or films of other genres. The performance of The Flying Jatt was poor across the board with probably CI having the best figures comparatively. Delhi and East Punjab should have done much better due to The Flying Jatt being a North film but collections were very dull there also. The film has a heavy reduction of shows in the second week so won’t add much from here on.
Happy Bhaag Jayegi held steady in the second week on low collections grossing 6.75 crore nett apprx which takes its business to 24.25 crore nett. The drop on the week is just a little over 60%. A similar Khoobsurat (2014) had grossed 25.34 crore nett in its lifetime run starting from a 2.34 crore nett first day and Happy Bhaag Jayegi will do a little better than that film. The plus for the film is its better collections in the North which tends to hold better than the rest of the country so the film it should continue to add decent collection in North at least in week three.
