Box Office Prediction – Jagga Jasoos


Jagga Jasoos is one of the most awaited and the most unpredictable film of 2017. It stars Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif in the roles and has been directed by the “Barfi” fame, Anurag Basu. If reports are to be believed, there are going to be too many songs in the film. Will Ranbir Kapoor get a long deserving Hit film in his kitty? If we take Ae Dil Hai Mushkil out of the equation, Ranbir’s last Super Hit film came way back in 2013 in the form of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. He badly needs a Hit to stamp his authority. Our predictions are as follows : 

It’s difficult to predict the plot of Jagga Jasoos. However, the crux of the story is that Jagga, along with his female companion, are on a voyage to find out Jagga’s missing father. The essence of the marketing strategy for the makers has been that not much has been revealed about the plot and viewers would be curious to know about the adventurous ride. However, this can heavily backfire since audience might not even turn out on Day 1, which is very important for this kind of a film. Also, by the looks of it, Jagga Jasoos looks more like a children’s film rather than a family entertainer. This might put off the young population from catching the film on the first day. They would be more willing to wait for the reviews and word of mouth. Our predictions for the film are :


Day 1 – 10.75 Cr

Day 2 – 13 Cr

Day 3 – 16 Cr

First Weekend – 39.75 Cr

Day 4 – 7.75 Cr

Day 5 – 7 Cr

Day 6 – 6.5 Cr

Day 7 – 6 Cr

First Week – 66.5 Cr

Day 8 – 4.25 Cr

Day 9 – 6 Cr

Day 10 – 7.75 Cr

Second Weekend – 18 Cr

Day 11 – 3 Cr

Day 12 – 2.75 Cr

Day 13 – 2.5 Cr

Day 14 – 2.25 Cr

Second Week – 28.5 Cr

Third Week – 12 Cr

Fourth Week – 2 Cr

Lifetime – 112 Cr


Jagga Jasoos is more likely to go the Barfi way if it gets the word of mouth similar to Barfi. Film is likely to start slow but will pick up over the weekend. Film will have a strong hold on Monday and the second weekend and it should collect the 100 crore lifetime figure. However, if the word of mouth is below average, it will go the Tamasha way and it will just be able to collect the 60-65 crore figure in it’s lifetime.
