There is a tough fight going on at the box office with Ranveer Singh starrer Jayeshbhai Jordaar trying to find a place between Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness and KGF: Chapter 2’s roaring business. Ranveer’s film has failed to make an impact on the audience and garnered poor collections on Day 1 of its release. It has got a poor start at the box office culling the hype and the expectations from it.
Despite having a strong social message the film has not received rave reviews but mixed reactions. Jayeshbhai Jordaar has notched only Rs 3.35 crore on Day 1 making the weekend extremely crucial for the film. It also stars Shalini Pandey, Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah and is directed by Divyang Thakkar.
