Released last Friday, the much anticipated Raj Mehta directorial Jugjugg Jeeyo featured an impressive cast of Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor, and Neetu Kapoor, which surely gave the film an extensive promotion. With over 3375+ screens in the domestic market, the film witnessed an impressive turnout with a huge jump in business in its second day. To say the least, it definitely exceeded the high expectations set for its opening and is easily one of the most talked-about recent releases.
In this box office report, we evaluate the performance of Jugjugg Jeeyo’s opening weekend collections in comparison to other releases from the year 2022. Accumulating a total of Rs. 36.93 cr, Jugjugg Jeeyo is the sixth-highest grosser in terms of its opening weekend collections for 2022, surpassing the total collections of movies such as Bachchhan Paandey (Rs. 36.17 cr), The Kashmir Files (Rs. 27.15 cr), Heropanti 2 (Rs. 16 cr) and Radhe Shyam (Rs. 13.94 cr). However, its collections are still unable to beat certain other releases like KGF – Chapter 2 (Rs. 193.99 cr), RRR (Rs. 75.57 cr), Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 (Rs. 55.96 cr), Samrat Prithviraj (Rs. 39.40 cr) and Gangubai Kathiawadi (Rs. 39.12 cr), despite the extensive promotion for Jugjugg Jeeyo.
Even though the collections of Jugjugg Jeeyo have been surprisingly poor up until this point, it continues to be shown in cinemas without much opposition. Trade pundits are certain that the box office receipts of the movie will climb steadily in the near future, and consequently, its business will reach an even higher level.
