According to Box Office India report, the Nitin Kakkar film which earned Rs 3 crore on its first day saw good growth on Saturday as it managed to mint another Rs 4.50 crore. With a total of Rs 7.50 crore, ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ witnessed a 50% growth on Saturday but it’ll be Monday that would decide the film’s future.
The report further suggested that last week Kangana Ranaut’s sports drama ‘Panga’ had a 110% growth on Saturday but it failed miserably on Monday as it had a massive drop in its collections. Meanwhile, Saif’s ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ is facing tough competition from Ajay’s period drama ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ which has also earned nearly the same number on Saturday which turns out to be in its fourth week.
Speaking in an exclusive chat with ETimes Saif opened up about his experience shooting with Tabu, and going by his reply, it sure was a fun day on the sets. He said, “Tabu is such a lovely actor and we had no rehearsal. Her name was taken by production for casting… to ask her if she would be nice to us and do this cameo. I was very excited because she’s such a good artist is one of my favourite actors, she will just make anything come alive in a very interesting way. So anybody who’s got her on a film has an advantage.”
Meanwhile, talking about the film, Saif plays a 40-something single man, living his best life, until one day when he finds out that he has a 21-year-old daughter who is pregnant. Alaya, who plays Saif and Tabu’s daughter in the film was all praise for her seniors as she said, “It was intimidating at first, I won’t lie. It was because they’re so good at what they do. And they’re known for being such good actors, not just personalities, but such good actors.”
Furthermore, she added, “If you see in the trailer, there’s one scene where I have to shut both of them up. It was scary but I feel like they made it so easy for me. Not once did they make me feel strange. They made me feel so comfortable and the set was so happy and everyone was so happy in the set that it was very easy for me.”
