Salman Khan's Jai Ho has continued to keep the bells ringing at the Indian Box Office in the second week. The Sohail Khan-directed action drama has once again topped the domestic business chart in the second weekend, beating Abhay Deol's much-hyped movie One By Two, which released this Friday. It has surpassed Rs 100 crore mark in the domestic market in 10 days.
Considering the huge amount of dip in the business of Jai Ho on the weekdays, trade experts had predicted that One By Two would completely slow down its collection in the second week. With the latter getting negative word of mouth, the Salman Khan and Daisy Shah starrer became the first choice for many film goers over the weekend.
When compared to its opening day collection, Jai Ho showed 80% drop in its business on its second Friday, but it gradually grew up on Saturday and Sunday. In the second weekend, the film has collected Rs 13.9 crores nett at the Indian Box Office, taking its 10-day domestic total to Rs 102.68 crores nett. Its breakup is Rs 3.40 cr on Fri, Rs 4.50 cr on Sat and Rs 6 cr on Sun.
With Dhoom 3 setting new benchmarks, film goers expected the dream run of Jai Ho to spill over to 2014, but the movie has failed to live upto the mark. While Salman Khan's previous releases Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2 took just five to six days to cross Rs 100 crore mark, his latest outing has struggled to achieve these numbers in 10 days. Its business is lower than Ready, which released in 2011.
