Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal pocketed a respectable ₹15.25 crore on Day 1. The film’s collections registered a marginal drop on Day 2 as it earned ₹15 crore and again picked it up on Day 3 with ₹15.50 crore.
Now, Imtiaz Ali’s romantic saga has managed to cross the coveted ₹50 crore barrier as it earned ₹7.15 on Raksha Bandhan. Trade expert, Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to post the collections a while ago. He wrote, “#JabHarryMetSejal Fri 15.25 cr, Sat 15 cr, Sun 15.50 cr, Mon 7.15 cr [Raksha Bandhan]. Total: ₹52.90 cr. India biz… #JHMS (sic).”

Jab Harry Met Sejal released over a long weekend and that worked in its favour. The coming week is crucial to for the film to register a huge box-office number.
On Friday, Akshay Kumar-Bhumi Pednekar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha will hit theatres and Jab Harry Met Sejal is set to face stiff competition. Hence, weekdays are significant as well.
Film critic and author, Khalid Mohamed, labelled the film as gift-wrapped Bollywood bonanza. In his review with SpotboyE.com, he stated, “This gift-wrapped Bollywood bonanza doesn’t quite shine a light, or dare I say uplift your spirits. In lieu of deluxe entertainment, there you are with a bickering (for starters) twosome taking off on a wild goose chase. Quack, before it melts into tedium.”
