Salman Khan’s Jai Ho box office collections after 11 days Rs 133 cr. Reports suggest that there is a chance for collections going up as it has been made tax free in UP and it may go tax free in Gujarat too.
Salman Khan may be distributing one lakh rupees each to the crew member of his recently released film Jai Ho, but we are sure that he is sorely disappointed with the way the film has performed at the box office.

The actor who has been accustomed to making headlines for breaking one record after the other in almost every other film, coming up with just around Rs 100 crore box office collection is the biggest disappointment. It’s impact is aggravated when you see that his two top competitors in the industry Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan’s current films have made more than Rs 235 crore film at the box office.

Salman Khan’s film on the other hand that was ‘expected to break all records’ struggled and struggled to break Rs 100 crore box office collection. Finally it was able to break out of the Rs 100 collection somehow or the other. But it was after the labour pains of at least 11 days. Chennai Express and Dhoom 3 did it in just three days.

Mind you the film was released in the highest number of screens for any film in the history of Indian cinema. Salman Khan’s Jai Ho was released in more than 5,000 screens worldwide. It has collected Rs Rs 133.33 crore in India while its worldwide collection stands at Rs 33 crore. A top Eros official says, “We are encouraged by the film’s run into its second week. With Uttar Pradesh going tax free, which will give a boost to the collections, we are hoping more states will follow”. But notwithstanding his optimism, the Sallu fans are extremely devastated by the way film has been a box office dud.
