The film witnessed a huge growth especially in the North circuit in both Delhi NCR and East Punjab, as also in Bangalore and Kolkata. This week’s new release ‘Rashtra Kavach Om’ may have witnessed a drop on Saturday. ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ showed a jump, but the initial collections were very low.
Talking about the success of ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’, Varun Dhawan had said to ETimes, “Box office numbers are very important and everyone’s trying to get back to normal times. The times that we are right now in, the kind of love ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’ is receiving, the kind of response it is getting the world over, is amazing. The box office is also happening and we’re getting so much love from people.”
Whereas Anil Kapoor had said that he isn’t into box office numbers now. “I was into it earlier but now I leave it to the producers, filmmakers and directors. I just do my best and deliver whatever I promised. Whatever I bring to the table, I try my best to give them much more than what they really expected from me. So I think that’s been my thing for the last 15 years, or earlier also, but now more. Jitna unko chahiye, main koshish karta hoon uss se zyada de sakun so that the producers, directors, actors are happy to work with me,” he said.
