Jersey box office day 4 collection: The Shahid Kapoor-starrer saw a huge dip in its collections on Monday, registering a 57% drop as compared to Sunday.
Shahid Kapoor’s latest release sports drama Jersey saw a huge drop in its collections at the box office on Monday. The film collected just around ₹1.5-1.7 crore on its fourth day, taking its total four-day gross to just over ₹15.5 crore. The drop is substantial and worrying for a small film like Jersey as it reduces the chances for the film to hold fort over the week. The film is facing stiff competition from the Hindi version of Kannada blockbuster KGF: Chapter 2, which earned ₹8.68 crore on Monday.

Jersey stars Shahid Kapoor in the lead with Mrunal Thakur and his father, Pankaj Kapur. Shahid plays a failed cricketer in the movie, who picks up the bat again to make his son proud. Mrunal plays his wife while Pankaj plays his coach. The HT review of the film mentioned that Shahid delivered a worthy performance but the film’s editing could have been better. The film has been directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri.
According to a report in BoxOfficeIndia.com, “Jersey took a hit on Monday as it collected around 1.50-1.70 crore nett. The drop is 57% which is just too big a drop for a film that did not open. The film had to collect 3 crore nett on Monday or more to stand a chance to get some collections in the second week but it has only done half of that.”
The future looks difficult for Jersey as this week sees the release of two films lined up for the Eid holiday–Runway 34 and Heropanti 2. These are bound to further hurt the Shahid-starrer’s collections. The BoxOfficeIndia.com report further states, “The film has faced rejection mainly as the film does not have much scope with mass audience while that audience in the metros which this film may have got before the pandemic is probably less now in numbers as the pandemic changed viewing habits.”
In comparison, KGF: Chapter 2 has continued to soar at the box office for one more day. On Monday, its twelfth day of release, the film’s Hindi version earned ₹8.68 crore, taking its total collections so far to ₹329.40 crore. According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film looks set to reach the Hindi-version India collections of Dangal, the second-highest-grossing Hindi film ever.
KGF Chapter 2 is the sequel to its hit first part and marks the return of Yash as Rocky. The film has recorded stellar business overseas and down south as well and has collected over ₹900 crore worldwide. It also stars Sanjay Dutt as antagonist Adheera and Raveena Tandon as the Prime Minister.
