Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Jab Harry Met Sejal Box Office Expectations

The clash between Shahrukh Khan's Jab Harry Met Sejal and Akshay Kumar's Toilet Ek Prem Katha has been averted. Also, a lot of other factors have changed the overall perception of both films. So it is time to update the overall expectations of both films.

Now that JHMS has been preponed, it will benefit Akshay starrer. When the clash was announced, it looked like a one-sided battle. But things have changed drastically in last few weeks, especially for TEPK. Akshay starrer is in a very strong position and it will not be a surprise if it tops JHMS or come close to it in the longtime run especially if the later is an average product. Of course, that depends on the content of TEPK but the trailer is suggesting a solid entertainer.

Toilet Ek Prem Katha is carrying excellent pre-release reports. Akshay is returning to comedy genre but it is not a brainless entertainer. From the trailer, it looks like a universally appealing comedy film with a social message. This genre has a huge potential, especially in core Hindi belts. Also, the film has solid chances to get tax-free status. A sure shot HIT.

Jab Harry Met Sajal is looking like a colourful romantic film. But the problem can be its urban treatment. The first look posters have names and maps of European countries but India is missing. Director Imtiaz Ali is making films for the audience of high-end multiplexes lately and can be a liability. More will be known after the release of the trailer.

But JHMS will have the advantage of chartbuster music. The reports for music are extraordinary and it can be the album of the year. Another plus is Shahrukh Khan's track record in box office clashes.

Considering all these factors, here are our box office expectations of both films.

Toilet Ek Prem Katha: 130 cr

Jab Harry Met Sejal: 165 cr (It will be updated again after the release of trailer)

    1. Raksha bandhan 15 august

      2 sunday janmastmi clash controversy

      ab dekhte h....SRK kitna khich pata h movie ko...????

      es baar 150 crore pakke h....global star k....

      But TEPK 180 crore se jyada nhi kma payegi....

      ydi aap acting kam...SRK k nakhre dekhna chahte ho....to ...Ring...Rahnuma...

      sorry JHMJ jrur dekhna?

      1. Sab stars ke fans srk se hi jalte hai, aur yeh jalan pasand hai hum srkians ko, jalte raho.

        But truly saying i love and respect all other actors, lekin jab in actors ke fan srk ko troll yaa gaali dete hai toh, dimaag ki hatt jaati hai, aur mujhe bhi unn fans ko kuch kehna padta hai.

        Agr sab actors ke fans ek hojaye naa, toh bollywood hollywood ke competition mai rahegi

        1. Ab Srk public k liye movie nhi bnata....

          khud ko proov krne k liye movie bnta h......

          apni ijjat bachane k liye movie bnata h?????????

  1. At 165 cr, SRK can forget a solo release for dwarf movie. He will definitely have another biggie clashing with him in December 2018. Some very rave reviews are coming for TEPK. Probably the way movie has shaped up has given confidence to Akshay to take SRK heads on. And probably the same reactions forced SRK to leave a lucrative holiday weekend to Akshay. In the end, no matter how big a star you are, you cannot compete with a finesse product.

    1. And srk- ititaz having too much punjab colour.
      That will up fold in the trailer.
      Ha ha bollywood arena .
      U know nothing . Just predicting

    1. @raj_kumar

      tere good words aamir k liye hi kaan krte h....

      ek or bol de....

      Dangal 3000 crore....

      please yaar....??

      but Srk k liye jyada bolega...to km honge

      km bolega ...to 100% km honge?

    2. Gareebo k raj kumar TEPK 150 cr plus kamaegi. Aur tu phir sir khujana apna. Ek baar TEPK super hit hone de phir dekh tera mai kya haal krta hu.

  2. Tnx bollyarena for this article . I was eagerly waiting . And u have predicted perfectly this time again . Thank you once again .

  3. To be honest i think if the trailer is good (only if is good) and the music is terrific than SRK starrer can collect arround 30 crores on day 1.. 32 day 2 day 3 37 and day 27 4 day weekend arround 120 and week 1 arround 160 (only with good content) But if is mixed like Raees and Dilwale will collect day 1 26 day 2 24 day 3 28 day 4 20 weekend arround 110-120 and week 1 arround 130..

  4. Akki is the biggest super and global star in the universe......toilet will break all records including dangal, bahubali 1 & 2

    Mark my words toilet will crush jhms by biggest margin.....................
    toilet ek prem khata - 1000+
    jab harry meet sejal - 50 only

    1. bhai dawai time se nahi khayi tune aaj..akki aaj tak 150 cr nahi cross kar paya hai apne lifetime mein par in comedy no one is better than akki. hopefully toilet will be entertaining movie

    2. Rohit@king din me khwab dekhna achi batnahi .mana k AK ka time acha chalra lekin itna b acha nahi k 1000cr kama sake

  5. Acording to rickshawala Bhaitards it is a clash
    Abey dhakkano, if this is a clash then apart from Don-Jaaneman and Jaagruti-Chamatkar
    these are also clash
    -Deewana vs Ek ladka ek ladki
    -Shaadi na karke shera phas gayayaar-Kavi alvidaa na kehna
    are also clashes, right??
    That means God tussi great ho vs Singhh is kingg is also clash?

    Abey autodrivers akki has beaten ur 2010 born actor 4 times in clash
    -Two tims in 90s
    Sangdil sanam vs hum hai bemishaal
    Andaaz apna apna vs Suhaag

    And 2 times last decade
    KYUN KI vs GM
    -Blue vs Main aur mrs Shera

  6. Yar ye akki k fans Kuch jyada ho gye....fir b akki ki movie 100cr se uppr nhi phuch pati.....

  7. Bhai dekho iss bar toilet aaye to ghr vale toilet m mt jana...
    11 aug. Ko cinema hall m toilet bn rha h...usme chle jana

  8. dosto apko once upon a time in Mumbai 2 vs chennai express to yaad hoga aapko in 2013 . CE 240 crore and uthm 65 crore. and CE has been prepponed by one week. samajdar ko ishara kafi hain.history is repeating again.srk to srk hain. akhsay nahi

  9. why only 165 crore. why this classic romantic film ( according to srk) cannot beat the 194 crore of crap prdp, is this the so called stardom of srk.

  10. Earlier it seems to me that TEPK is a small film clashing with BIG film,but as time is passing TEPK is looking bigger than harry meet Sejal.This will be the battle of equals unlike secret superstar vs golmal 3.

  11. Its the contrary of what is written in this article that will happen!
    JHMS will benefit 2 four day weekend.
    By averting Clash, TEPK will receive less promotion. Let's not forget that the likes of Son of Sardar, Bajirao MASTANI, Kaabil got publicity only because of clashing with JTHJ, Dilwale and Raees respectively.
    So, it is a masterstroke business decision that RCE took that must be applauded. By doing so, the business of JHMS will increase by 30-40 crs

  12. shahrukh flop film dilwale 148 crore n world wide 395 crore...n akshay biggest hit film rowdy rathore 135 overseas ki to baat hi mat karo... talk in rational geuine way..he is good star but do not overdo ... why national award winning actor film rustam not released in china n all...say in righteous way of writing. fact r fact. akhay blockbuster film is mohra....my fav..

  13. Dishonest Joker, SRK doesn't spoil people's Diwali with Garbage film with solo release like Gangu Teli Bhagoda sallu does, so no need to compare a solo Diwali release with August release. Sallu fans are as gawar as Hit and Run bhagoda sallu, they compare Diwali and CHristmas releases with Non-holiday Non-festive releases.

  14. Akshay Kumar chasing ranveer Singh while srk chasing hritik but still someone says that both are global star.how ?

  15. @nn who has said that to you. srk can do anything. srk's diwali solo release ra one failed to cross salman's non holiday release ready. his xmas solo release don 2 failed to cross salman's non holiday release ready. so let's see now what gangu teli srk does. can his solo non holiday release jhms beat salman's two festival releases tubelight and tiger zinda hain. salman has done that in 2011 when he went on to beat srk from right , left and center .
    this is the reason why srk's father and mother died in their young age leaving gangu teli an orphan, because they were ashamed of giving birth to a looser like srk who has spend bollywood in 25 years but has faced outright rejection from audience.

    1. Those last lines of yor have proved that u are a wild beast. Your hatred for SRK has gone deep down, perhaps bco SRK has raped your mother.

  16. Dishonest Joker- THis is what happens when Criminals roam freely without punishment, more Criminals like you join to support that Criminal. Gawar Joker, Prabhas has already molested Gangu Teli sallu's Eid and Christmas release on Non-Holiday in Gangu Teli sallu Criminal Bhagoda's best phase. SRK doesn't need to do it any more. And talking about SRK's parents, people like you should be spanked with boot in front of mass people for comments like this. SRK has achieved the status of Biggest Moviestar in the World by International people. WHat rejection are you talking about Gawar? 40 Flops? 15 Disasters? 21 Clash losses by Gangu Teli sallu???
    Let's see Gangu Teli sallu's mass rejection, every time audience had a chance to choose someone over Gangu Teli sallu they opted for the other one.
    Another record of BHAI
    sallu has lost most no. of clashes:
    In 1990s sallu lost these clashes
    -Biwi ho to aisi vs sone pe suhaaga(madhuri)
    -Kurbaan vs 100 days-Suryabanshi vs Panaah(nasserudheen shah)
    -Nischai vs Julm ki Hukumat(govinda)
    -Dil tera aashiq vs ek hi raasta
    -Chandramukhi vs Ek hi Raasta(Ajay)
    -Sangdil sanam vs HHB(akki)
    -Andaaz apna apna vs suhaag
    -Agni sakshi vs Yeh Majhdar(nan patekar)
    -Auzaar vs Juddai(anil kapoor)
    Chand ka tukda vs naaraj(mithun)

    In last decade
    -Phir milenge vs Dhoom(uday chopra)
    -SKPGY vs Anthony kaun hai(arshad warsi)
    -Don vs Jaaneman(SRK)
    -MAMK vs Blue vs All the best
    -Andaaz apna apna vs suhaag
    -marigold vs buddha margaya(Rakhi sawant,)
    -God tussi great ho vs bachna ae haseeno(Ranbir kapoor)
    Perhaps even Chamatkar vs Jagrutti with srk(Date to be confirmed by BOI)
    THese are called rejection. Probably the rickshawala population of India has increased that's why Gangu Teli sallu's films find audience but still he is behind Aamir and Prabhas. So Gangu Teli sallu is the Teesra Khan even in this decade.

  17. @dishonest man
    Let's see the opening of both JHMS vs tubelight
    And now you will say it's ramzan period haha
    And iodit because of srk cameo, tubelight will get 2 crore more opening
    And don't give excuses
    If you want JHMS vs tiger zinda hai, then let's compare the worldwide weekend collection of both movies.
    After all, let's see who is more popular worldwide
    Cheap dishonest man, want to compare the opening of one of the Bollywood expensive action movie with romantic movie
    Beta Tera darr dekh kr accha lga
    Esa darr sab haters ki zuban par hona chayiye and
    Srk parents left him because they knew that he can take care of his family and his-self and he proved himself as a king of Indian cinema
    But one actor needed his parents to get one single hit
    We all know who is self made star or father made star
    Hope your parents will not feel ashamed to give birth to you

  18. srk se Sab jalte kyu gain ? (haters)
    Ans -kyuki WO bada star hain
    he has a talent
    he has a good sense of humour
    he know how to attract people
    he belong from good family
    he is very educated. nobody is educated in industry
    he has a good English
    he is a better actor in Bollywood he known how to do acting.
    sach kadwa hota hain dosto.
    aise argument karne se kuch nhi hota
    phele jao apna naam bada karo.
    dusro ko bolna easy hota hain.
    Bollywood mein Sab apni jagah acchai .akshay . srk .salman. amir.rthik

  19. Toilet ek Prem Katha release hone ke baad Akki aur uska sare fans ko toilet me chupna padega. Don't compare srk with flopestar.

  20. Clash K karan hi Srk ke sath Jo movies release Hoti hai Unhe itni publicity milti hai.. Werna kabhi wo movies solo release Hoti na to Itna business bhi nhi kr pati, jitna bhi unhone Kia hai like son of sardar, bajirav Mastani & kaabil Aur mere iss comment se Srk haters bhi agree karenge
