The film has done good to very good business all over initially apart from Bihar. CI is also on the lower side. The best business for the film has come in South India and West Bengal as these markets have been a one horse race.
The South and West Bengal do tend to drop faster than the traditional Hindi markets so how well it can sustain in Mumbai, Delhi/UP, east Punjab and Central markets over the next three days will hugely important for its long term business.
Son Of Sardaar collected around 11.50 crore nett on its third day as per early estimates. The three day total for the film is around 34.50 crore nett. The film is super strong in Delhi/UP, East Punjab, Bihar, CP Berar, CI and Rajasthan.
In Delhi/UP, East Punjab, CI and Rajasthan the film will emerge the biggest hit of Ajay Devgn’s career. Bihar may also make the list. The day figures in the above circuits ensure the film will sustain in these circuits for the next two weeks.
Out of the other circuits, Mumbai is pretty good as Gujarat is strong and business in Nizam is also fair while Mysore, West Bengal and Tamil/Nadu are weak.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan collected around 19-19.50 crore nett on its second day as per early estimates taking its two day figure to around 32 crore nett. The film showed big growth all over apart from the circuits which were strong on day one.
The growth on day two is around 50% which is good but mass circuits did not show the growth they should have. Going by the trends on Wednesday, the film is likely to fair best in the big cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore.
Basically the clash has split the market Jab Tak Hai Jaan set to do better in some pockets and Son Of Sardaar set to do better in other pockets.
