'Jab Harry Met Sejal' box-office collection Day 3: Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer inc
Although there was a mixed bunch of reviews post the release of Imtiaz Ali's 'Jab Harry Met Sejal', the audience still stands king when it comes to ascertaining box-office figures. According to a report on BoxofficeIndia.com, the Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharmastarrer raked in an estimated total of Rs 44 crore in the first three days of its release. With an opening day collection of an estimated Rs 15 crore, the film went on to maintain a steady graph at the box office with collections of Rs 14.25 crore and Rs 14.75 crore on Saturday and Sunday respectively. The two-hour-twenty-four-minute film revolves around how Sejal (Anushka) bumps into tour-guide Harry (Shah Rukh) and together set off visiting the exact same spots that she and her family visited - in the hope of finding her lost engagement ring. Imtiaz, whose movies have a central theme of relationships and their vagaries, said he has never belonged to the "intelligent club" and always aimed at making this film for the masses. He also brushed aside criticism that his "touch" was missing from the film, saying that he never wanted praise for himself while making the movie. At a recent event, he was quoted saying, "I have not made this film for praise. You know I would like to be the director who can make different kinds of films. This one is made to reach the maximum number of people. Not to just get praise for myself."
'Jab Harry Met Sejal' marked Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma's second release this year. SRK was last seen in 'Raees', while Anushka producer and starred in the film 'Phillauri'. This film also marked their third outing together. They will reunite once again for Aanand L Rai's untitled dwarf film.
