Bollywood box-office report of the week
With no major films listed for release this Friday, due to the ‘Diwali’ blockbusters, the attention shifts to the two Tuesday releases, Ajay Devgn’s SON OF SARDAAR and Shah Rukh Khan’s JAB TAK HAI JAAN. While both the films are likely to embark on a good start, SON OF SARDAAR has better chances at the single screens and JAB TAK HAI JAAN will fare best at the multiplexes. Trade insiders put the strong regions/circuits of SOS as U.P. East Punjab and Central India and for JAB TAK HAI JAAN the best run is expected from Delhi City, Mumbai circuit, Hyderabad- Nizam, Mysore Circuit and West Bengal. In the end count, the film which has a longer shelf life and the one that the families and youths prefer will be the winner. As far as the initial advance booking trends are concerned, the winner appears to be JAB TAK HAI JAAN, but that is only an indication.
