Jagga Jasoos has been in the making for over three years, and finally released on Friday after many hiccups. There was a lot of buzz around the Anurag Basu-directed film, as it was Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s first release after their widely publicised break-up. However, the film did not perform as per expectations, and earned Rs 8.57 crore on its opening day.

The film is released in 1800 screens shows overall occupancy has over 55%. However, the film has garnered positive feedback from kids. Made on a staggering budget of Rs 110 crore, the film will have to do really well to recover its production cost.
Ranbir’s last film“Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” collected Rs. 13.30 crore on its first day while Katrina’s last flick “Baar Baar Dekho” earned only Rs. 6.81 crore on the opening day.
Critics have unanimously praised Ranbir’s performance, though the film itself has received mixed reviews. It remains to be seen Jagga Jasoos’s collections increase, since the film appeals to children. Only the weekend will tell what the fate of the film will be.
