Before the movie was released, it was predicted that Jagga Jasoos might make Ranbir Kapoor’s career. However, in spite of coming up with a new experimental genre, Jagga Jasoos failed to do well at the box office. The movie was able to earn just 9 Crore in 9 days and also failed in overseas as well.
Ranbir Kapoor’s father, Rishi Kapoor bashed Anurag Basu for producing such flop movies in Bollywood. He said that the movie was a huge flop because Anurag Basu is an irresponsible director who failed to understand the pan-Indian audience. Also, he said that the movie did not get enough screening because it wasn’t delivered on time.
The movie may have been appreciated by a certain section of the audience but it has ended up losing major money. Experts say that the movie will make Rs. 90 crores at the most in total which means the producers will end up losing the majority of income. The budget for movie making was Rs. 115-120 crore. The gross income from the movie is expected to Rs. 90 crore which means the net income will be very low.
Which means the producers and Ranbir-Katrina might end up losing Rs. 40 crore in the process. The team is now trying to collaborate with Netflix or Amazon in order to reduce their loss. Let’s see what’s more to come for Jagga Jasoos this month!
