Bollywood movie Jai Ho starring Salman Khan and Daisy Shah in leads has concluded the first week with good collection at the Indian Box Office. Trade expert had predicted that its seven day collection would be closer to the mark of Rs 200 crore, but the action drama has failed to surpass even Rs 100 crore mark in the domestic market. It has also failed to beat the records of Salman Khan's previous hit films.

Released in 4,400 screens in the domestic market on January 24,
Jai Ho opened to overwhelming response in both single
screens and multiplexes. Though it had huge screen count and good
amount of occupancy that ranged between 80% and 90% on the first
day, it could not beat the first day business record of Salman
Khan's Ek Tha Tiger, which had raked in Rs 32.92 crores at
the Indian Box Office.
Despite getting positive word of mouth, Jai Ho could
not show improvements. Rather its collection dipped on Saturday.
The movie picked up well on Sunday, but it was not up to the mark.
It witnessed nearly 40% fall on Monday and its business continued
to dip through on the following weekdays. Trade experts opine that
the movie has registered decent amount of occupancy on all, but due
to its low ticket price, its numbers are low on all days.
Jai Ho has collected Rs 88.58 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first week and its break up is Rs 17.75 cr on Fri, Rs 16.68 cr on Sat, Rs 26.25 cr on Sun, Rs 9.50 cr on Mon, Rs 7.30 cr on Tue, Rs 5.80 cr on Wed, Rs 5.30 cr on Thu. Its seven day collection is little more than what Salman Khan's previous outings like Dabangg, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2 had earned in their opening weekend.
