Nobody expected Prakash Jha’s Jai Gangaajal to perform miracles at the box office inspite of starring Priyanka Chopra. Considering the fairly low expectations from the film, the movie has performed quite well. Jai Gangaajal raked in 5.50 Crores on day one which was fairly decent. It managed to show some growth on day two as it added another 6.25 Crores followed by 6 Crores on day three. Overall, the film has made 17.75 Crores over the weekend inspite of the lukewarm response to the film. However it remains to be seen if the film proves to be a hit or a dud in the days to come.
On the other hand, previous week’s releases Tere Bin Laden Dead Or Alive and Aligarh have both proved to be box office failures. While the former made just 4 Crores over the week, Aligarh barely managed to rake in 2.50 Crores in the first week.
