Junglee collected 3.25- 3.50 crore nett on day one and did reasonable business in some places but generally the collections were low. Bihar was best with 20 lakhs nett business and this circuit still remains to loyal to animal films.
Films with animals in the past which may not have been huge hits across India always did big business here like Maa (1976), Main Aur Mera Haathi (1981)and Doodh Ka Karz (1990) and this might not be huge in Bihar like those films but is still far better than other circuits. It has collected more than Uri - The Surgical Strike on day one in Bihar.
The better collections are from mass circuits so huge growth maybe difficult for the film. The other release Notebook has fared poorly with collections of 60-70 lakhs nett on day one. It is three times less than Junglee which itself is not that good.
This film will find it tough going with such low collections. The collections are much lower than the last Salman Khan Production which introduced newcomers. Loveyatri released in October last year did business of 2.11 crore nett on day one.
