Jab Tak Hai Jaan leads in the advance bookings over Son Of Sardaar. It was always going to lead in terms of number of tickets sold before release simply because there are far more tickets available due to much wider release. But in terms of percentage of tickets sold at a theatre it is leading almost across the board.

The gap is less in the North with some multiplexes on par while Jab Tak Hai Jaan having 5-10% lead in others but in places like Hyderabad and Pune there is a big difference with Jab Tak Hai Jaan leading by a margin.

The biggest problem for Son Of Sardaar is that in centres where it would have given Jab Tak Hai Jaan a run for its money it does not have the screens as Jab Tak Hai Jaan has cornered 90% of the big collecting single screens in Delhi city, UP, Rajasthan and CI. The battle is likely to be closest in East Punjab as single screens have a low contribution in the circuit but even here as there are a lot of premium multiplexes so Jab Tak Hain Jaan should come out ahead but with a smaller gap than the rest of India.

Still both films are looking at a strong opening though the first day will be up and down due to Diwali festivities but on day two both films will go to capacity houses or near capacity houses

    now this has got points..
    Firstly jthj is leading much ahead bcoz of wider release..
    Secondly sos is nt getting proper screen where it was supposed to open big..
    Thirdly its mass movie which hardly depends on advance booking…

    I was wondering how one can easily says jthj will win onesided blah blah when the fact is jthj release size is like onesided. Still sos will give tough competition for sure… Lol on site like boxofficecaosule which gives blind update

          i think this line indicates many things……its about % not only about numbers…..

    The reference single screen theater Chandan cinema, Juhu sold only 40-50% ticket by advance booking. It was 70-80% for Don 2, Ra.One and Rawdy Rathore. 100% for Agneepath. Bodyguard and Ek Tha Tiger. If that not pick up end of today, then i am not expecting more than 14 Cr, opening for JTHJ.
    As for SOS, its a gone case, i would be surprise if that open even 8 cr.
