Well any 30cr+ opening day movie couldn't get audience to enjoy like this (refer to the videos) so yes I standby the fact mega stardom where the actor solely creates mass hysteria.
As far as box office goes, opening day, opening weekend, first week everything belongs to Bhai so no query there whatsoever.
The fact that a movie releases & watching it itself is a celebration because of the actor proves megastardom. And moreover, a Jai Ho makes people chant "Salman ki Jai Ho" inside a multiplex, in & outside the mall (the first 2 videos) is anyday a proud thing. Dancing inside a multiplex, Kick achieved it. And this mass hysteria, common thing be it north, south, east or west.
So what Jai Ho underperformed? Did anybody stop living? The facts to celebrate are aplenty. You see box office as your reason to celebrate. I see the experience I got to celebrate as well as cherish as I get to watch every other bollywood actor films in the multiplex/single screen with dead audience. And sadly PRDP joined the list of other Bollywood actors films where there was no cheering plus the movie was too boring for me to check it for the 2nd time in single screen just for the cheers. Ofcourse Hindus bashing muslims during the screening of Bajrangi Bhaijaan in that single screen located in a muslim dominated area, forcing us to watch with police protection was another reason for deciding not to watch PRDP in a single screen. Watched Jai Ho twice in the theater, strong will would've made me survive PRDP twice too.
