Son Of Sardar is one of the much-hyped movies in Hindi.
Especially, Ajay Devgn's legal war against YRF, the makers of
Jab Tak Hai Jaan, had added to its massive hype and
curiosity. But the movie, which graced 2,000+ screens in the
country on November 13, failed to beat Jab Tak Hai Jaan,
which was released on 2,500+ screens in the country. Although its
per screen average was almost equal to the latter, it was released
in less number of theatres than the other.
Another noticeable thing here is that when their business
improved, Son Of Sardar saw higher rate of growth than
Jab Tak Hai Jaan. When their collection dropped, Son
Of Sardar showed lesser amount of dip than the latter till
Tuesday. But the Ajay Devgn starrer overtook the Shahrukh starrer
on the 8th day of its release. It has collected Rs 4.82 crores on
Tuesday and Rs 4.45 crores on Wednesday at the domestic Box Office,
while the latter raked in Rs 4.66 crores and Rs 4.12 crores on
these two days respectively.
However, Son Of Sardar might have beaten Jab Tak Hai Jaan with a small margin, but what the Bollywood trade experts say is very interesting. They say that it is clear sign of the growing potentiality of Son Of Sardar. Since there are no big release this weekend, the trade analysts feel that the Ajay-Sanjay-Sonakshi starrer may lead the collection chart at the desi Box Office in the second week.
