Box Office: Jazbaa opens well

October 12, 2015 17:43 IST

Good news for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan fans.

With no other big films releasing on the same day, Jazbaa made most of the opportunity and fared well at the box office over the weekend. Lack of appreciation, however, will limit it to an avarage status.

Talvar has been much appreciated, and has done well in its first week. 

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the box office verdict for the week.
