Junglee box office collection: Vidyut Jammwal's action-adventure film earns Rs 13.85 cr on opening weekend
Chuck Russell's Hindi directorial debut, Junglee, picked up pace on the third day of its release. Starring Vidyut Jammwal in the lead, the film minted Rs 4.45 crore on Saturday (30 March) and Rs 6.05 crore on Sunday after opening with Rs 3.35 crore on Friday. The film's opening weekend collection stands at Rs 13.85 crore.
Despite the buzz surrounding Junglee, the adventure-action flick has underperformed at the box office. Trade analysts opine that if the film continues its upward trend in the next few days, it will be able to recover its lost ground. The film has however performed well in the mass circuits.
#Junglee picks up on Day 3... Does lower than expected in its opening weekend, but Day 3 biz gives hope... Mass circuits are good/decent... Needs to maintain the pace on weekdays to cover lost ground... Fri 3.35 cr, Sat 4.45 cr, Sun 6.05 cr. Total: ₹ 13.85 cr. India biz.
