After a few delays, Shahid Kapoor-led Jersey hit the theaters on Friday. The film is off to a slow start at the ticket counters, probably because Yash’s KGF Chapter 2 is still a popular choice among movie buffs across the country.

As per a Box Office India report, Jersey collected Rs 3.75 crore on its opening day. The film faced stiff competition from KGF 2 which earned Rs 11.56 crore in the Hindi belt. Film trade expert Taran Adarsh shared that KGF 2 will enter the Rs 300 crore club this weekend (Hindi), hinting a slow weekend for Jersey.

Earlier, film trade exhibitor Akshaye Rathi had already said that Jersey won’t receive a ‘ballistic’ opening. He told indianexpress.com, “In terms of box office, I don’t think Jersey will open ballistically. It is a film which will grow with the word of mouth and will carry good reports. It might not be a good starter, but it will grow by the day and will register a good total.”

Jersey has received a mixed response from the film critics while the film industry has praised the film for its “emotional quotient”. Our Source’ film critic Shubhra Gupta gave it a 2.5 star rating. In her review, she wrote, “The film comes alive in the sequences between Shahid and his real-life father who plays his never-say-die coach and mentor. Pankaj Kapoor delivers a lovely, relaxed performance.”
