Box Office – Sarbjit just about edges past Jazbaa
By Joginder Tuteja
Close to 50 crore were earned between new Hindi and English releases last week even though collections stayed largely ordinary. Sarbjit, after a low start, just about managed to go past Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s last release Jazbaa [21.58 crore]. With 22.09 crore coming in, the film has made profits for its producers, though distributors would have to see how footfalls come in the second week. There are decent number of shows retained since there is no new major Hindi release. However, theatrically the film hasn’t lived up to the kind of hype that was generated around it.
