The stage is set for Salman Khan's Jai Ho, his first release of the year. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh is confident that it will cross the Rs 300-crore mark while Amod Mehra says though a bumper opening is assured, reaching Rs 200 crore could be "a Herculean task".
According to trade, the Hrithik Roshan-starrer has entered the Rs 200-crore club thanks to its collections in India alone.
With a dismal performance, Akshay Kumar's latest release is no match for Shah Rukh Khan's Chennai Express which is racing towards Rs 200 crore mark.
The disappointment around Sajid Khan's Himmatwala has been the talk of the town. The film that was expected to register a flying start failed to do so, with the trade and critics alike panning it.
