Jai Ho fails to click with the audience

Jai Ho managed a three-day collection of around Rs.58.5 crore despite opening on the Republic Day weekend. With the film releasing on a mammoth scale across 5,000 screens, the trade analysts had expected the movie to cross the 100-crore mark in two days. 

Early trends indicate Jai Ho will stru- ggle to earn Rs.100 crore in about a week and chances of the film matching the monstrous 500- crore global intake of Dhoom 3 are dim. 

Jai Ho opened on a disappointing note on Friday, collecting Rs.17.5 crore. The scene was worse on day two (Rs.16 crore). Sunday saw ticket sales shoot up (Rs.25 crore) but early reports on Monday collections were hardly encouraging. 

Occupancy has been far below estimates. The film has seen around 80 per cent occupancy in single screens. The percentage for multiplexes stands at over 50. 

Salman's latest also fails to match his own record. The Rs.17.5-crore opening day seems insignificant compared to the Rs.32.9 crore firstday earning that Ek Tha Tiger co- starring Katrina Kaif did in 2012. 

Jai Ho may scrape through to become a hit and ensure some profits for its makers but the trade is disappointed as something special was expected from a Salman starrer releasing after well over a year since the superstar last hit the marquee with Dabangg 2. 

While most feel the lack of originality led to the film's disappointing show, others point at publicity overkill.

Kapil Sharma refuses to host CCL 4, leaves organisers miffed

Comedian Kapil Sharma, host of the popular show Comedy Night with Kapil, reportedly left organisers fuming after he refused to host CCL 4, at the last minute. 

According to reports, he did so solely because of he didn't get a vanity van of his own. 

Kapil was apparently supposed to start rehearsing with Mandira, also co-hosting CCL, by noon, but showed up a good two hours late, leaving no time for rehearsal. 

Reportedly, Kapil's team made a lot of demands and after the organisers offered him an AC room, he plain refused. He eventually walked out, leaving no time for the organisers to recover. 

According to reports, Kapil, who seems to share a great rapport with Salman Khan, was afraid his antics would upset Sallu bhai, and his brother Sohail Khan (co-owner Mumbai Heroes). And when Kapily called SOhail up, he apparently told Kapil to keep out of it.

Boycott Salman Khan for praising Narendra Modi: Clerics issue appeal

A section of Muslim clerics have appealed the community to boycott actor Salman Khan's movies for praising Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi. 

The clerics have also appealed people to boycott the products which were endorsed by the actor. 

While speaking to the Times of India, Maulana Ejaz Kashmiri, a member of the All India Ulema Council and an imam at a mosque in Bhendi Bazaar said, "Salman's statement that there is no need for Modi to say sorry for the 2002 riots is provocative and deplorable. It has hurt the sentiments of Muslims and the community should boycott the actor's present and future films and the products he endorses unless he apologises." 

The actor has been at the receiving end from the clerics after he was seen flying kites with the Gujarat CM during a promotional programme for his latest film 'Jai Ho' in Gujarat. 

While praising Modi as a 'great man' Salman had said there was no need for the CM to apologise for the 2002 riots as the judiciary had given him a clean chit. 

Earlier Salman also drew angry reactions from the same community for his performance at the Samajwadi Party's extravagant Saifai Festival at a time when Muzaffarnagar riots victims were still struggling the chilling cold in relief camps.

Trade experts say in comparison to the star’s previous films, this won’t create any fireworks in terms of records.
