In short, January is highly unsuccessful month for Bollywood. In last 10 years, only 1 film managed to be a huge hit and it was Agneepath which was a Dharma Production, a remake, had high buzz and hype and Chikni Chameli. Now, we have to wait and see if Jai Ho manages to make it bigger or not. 

Task for Jai Ho;
  • To Be A Blockbuster
  • To Cross 121 Crore
