Jon Favreau’s magic works again
After The Jungle Book, Jon Favreau once again managed to connect with the audience owing to superb animation, VFX and emotional content.
The Jungle Book was a huge hit in India. After a good opening of 10.09 crores, it went on to earn 170+ crores at the Indian box office.
The hold on Monday will decide, how long will it run at the box office. With the kind of response, ‘The Lion King’ is getting, we can expect it to cross 100 crore mark very soon.
The two major Bollywood releases of this week, Jhootha Kahin Ka and Family of Thakurganj failed to make an impact at the box office.
