Q. How much does Jai Ho need to earn to be declared a Hit and then a blockbuster at the India box office? - asked by Jaidev and many others.
A. Jai Ho would need to collect around Rs 130-135 crore for Eros to break-even and for the film to be a decent success at the box office. The company has invested around Rs 90 crore for the India and overseas rights of the film (including print and marketing costs). The overseas share is expected to be anywhere between Rs 15-18 crore, so the distributor’s share at the domestic box office has to be 70 crore+.
Looking at the Monday collections, Jai Ho is unlikely to be Salman’s 6th back-to-back blockbuster, as it has to collect more than 180 crore to be declared a ‘Blockbuster’ by the trade.
