The Japanese anime film, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 premiered on Thursday, June 30. After selling over 50,000 tickets in pre-sales on opening day, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 hit Indian theatres. Directed by Sunghoo Park, it is the prequel to the Crunchyroll Anime of the Year winner Jujutsu Kaisen.
JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 MINTS RS 1.8 CRORE ON DAY 1
The blockbuster anime pooled an estimated Rs 1.80 crore on its opening day. This collection was through advanced bookings. As per the predictions, the film will gross a total of Rs 2 crore, including walk-in ticket sales.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 outperformed current Bollywood releases in terms of ticket sales, including Rashtra Kavach Om, which stars Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjana Sanghi. The action thriller barely made a dent in its Rs 40 crore budget with less than Rs 1 crore in pre-sales. Another big banner film, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, pooled in an estimated Rs 75 lakh in pre-sales. The film is written and directed by Madhavan, who also leads the cast.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has also quickly raised the ranks of the highest-grossing anime films of all time, behind the likes of Makato Shinkai’s Weathering With You and Your Name and 2020’s blockbuster Demon Slayer Mugen Train which tops the list.
