Box Office Report for the Week - 17 Nov 2012
  Double Diwali Blast But ´Jab Tak Hai Jaan´ Leads ´Son Of Sardaar´ Globally!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

The much awaited clash between Ajay Devgn’s `Son Of Sardaar` and Shah Rukh Khan’s `Jab Tak Hai Jaan` went the expected way! Both the films embarked on a good start with `Son Of Sardaar` leading in Bihar, Rajasthan, CP Berar and East Punjab and `Jab Tak Hai Jaan` dominating Mumbai circuit, Delhi–UP, Mysore, West Bengal, Hyderabad–Nizam and TNK. After four days, `Son Of Sardaar` has netted 44-45 crore and `Jab Tak Hai Jaan` 57-58 crore from India. What must be kept in mind is the fact SOS has a total cost of 80-85 crore (all inclusive) and JTHJ 60 crore (all inclusive, sans SRK’s fee), and so both the films have to last more than the extended 6-day weekend, to be declared a hit. In the overseas `Jab Tak Hai Jaan` is the clear winner, having grossed $4.65m in just four days (having released in some markets on the third day!), and is expected to reset many old records!
