2.) For Aishwarya Rai this is actually 6th highest opening day in her career behind movies such as Dhoom 2, Raavan , Sarkaar Raj, Guzaarish and Jodha Akbar.
All India Screens:
As with all movies starring female protagonists Jazbaa depends completely on word of mouth .
Jazbaa has primarily collected in Mumbai and Delhi/UP and that too in top cities outside of which it is struggling.
If word of mouth is good enough it should grow on Saturday and have a decent chance but if growth is not there it will struggle at box office.
Plus for the movie is that competition is low as Singh is Bliing is also struggling and their is no competition in next week.
Bit of a problem with Jazbaa is that it faces strong competition in multiplexes with another Irfan starrer Talvar.
Satellite rights have been sold for the movie at Rs 8 Crore
Music and Overseas have given a recovery of Rs 4 Crore
Movie will recover its cost if it collects some where between 36-40 Crore to achieve a distribution share of 18 crore.
At 40 Crore it will be considered a hit.
