Bollywood film Jagga Jasoos gets welcoming response in Pakistan. Normally we see that major Bollywood films fail to release in Pakistan but interestingly some of the recent movies not only released but also did remarkable collections in Pakistan. One of such movie is Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starring Jagga Jasoos. And the surprising news is, Jagga Jasoos has able to beat the first-day record collection of Baahubali 2 in Pakistan.
A few months back, Baahubali 2 got released in Pakistan and has collected 69 lakhs at the Box Office on the Day 1. It was one of the biggest openers till Jagga Jasoos released. In the first day itself, Jagga Jasoos has able to earn enough collection that it can easily overpower Baahubali 2. Ranbir’s film has able to collect 74 lakhs on the day 1 which is 5 lakhs more than Baahubali 2. This clearly means that Disney’s adventurous-musical film has become the highest grosser Bollywood film in Pakistan in 2017.
Interestingly, Baahubali 2 has collected 121 crores in India on the first day in terms of nett collection, whereas Jagga Jasoos has earned 8.57 crores. But, things look live very different in the neighbouring country, where people are the huge fan of Bollywood cinema.
Unfortunately, neither Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees nor Salman Khan’s Tubelight got released in Pakistan. But some mid-budget Bollywood movies easily gets a green signal in Pakistan. Recently, Sridevi’s Mom was also released in Pakistan with a tremendous response.
Directed by Anurag Basu, Jagga Jasoos was one of the delayed films of Bollywood. The film was on the floor in 2012 but due to some or other reasons, it gets shelved. Due to this, the budget of the movie has reached to 100 crores and that means even if Jagga Jasoos earn 80 or 90 crores lifetime, it will still be in loss.
Altogether, Jagga Jasoos has managed to beat Prabhas starring Baahubali 2 in Pakistan.
