After Raees have underperformed at the box office, Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan’s latest release Jab Harry Met Sejal has also failed to do much. Though the movie had a decent first day, there was a stop in the second day and the film had a minus Rs 50 crore weekend.
In fact, Jab Harry Met Sejal may wind up losing more money than any other SRK-starrer since Dulha Mil Gaya in 2010, reported Deccan Chronicle.
A source from film said, “Shah Rukh’s films attain blockbuster status only when he collaborates with his favourite directors, Yash Chopra, Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Farah Khan, Farhan Akhtar or even Rohit Shetty, while playing a romantic lover-boy. But when he steps out of his comfort zone, he falters. Ashutosh Gowariker in Swades, Rahul Dholakia in Raees, Maneesh Sharma in Fan, Imtiaz Ali in Jab Harry Met Sejal are some examples. Now he has Aanand L. Rai’s untitled film, where he plays a midget. Audiences wouldn’t want to see him cut down to size.”
