The film, inspite of having a long weekend, has managed to collect just Rs 52.9 crore so far. Jab Harry Met Sejal collected Rs 45.75 crore nett at the domestic box office in its opening weekend. "I am sure that a lot of people do not think that Jab Harry Met Sejal is an intellectual masterpiece, but I did not intend it to be one", Imtiaz Ali was quoted as saying about the movie's performance. "#JabHarryMetSejal Fri 15.25 cr, Sat 15 cr, Sun 15.50 cr, Monday 7.15 cr [Raksha Bandhan]".

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the total collection of the film so far.

A source from film, who doesn't want to be named says, "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".

"Earlier, he had tweeted, "#JabHarryMetSejal has emerged a DISAPPOINTMENT.
