Over the years, we have seen a huge increase in the acceptance of content from different countries. The latest example is Jujutsu Kaisen 0 which is rocking the box office in India. It is a Japanese animated fantasy film based on the highly popular manga comics. Scroll down to know about its opening number of days.
For those who don’t know, the film was originally released in Japan last year. In 2022, it opened in more regions such as North America, Malaysia and South Korea. After months of waiting, Medialink (the distribution company) managed to find a release date and finally the film was out yesterday.
Anime has a loyal fan base in India, so a good start was definitely on the cards. However, the first day’s figures have taken everyone by surprise. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 released in just 200 screens, earned a huge amount 1.80 crore* first day. This is indeed a huge number, considering that many Indian films have found it difficult to even touch the 1 crore mark on the first day despite getting 1000+ screens in the recent past. But here, a Japanese animated film has managed to do the unimaginable. In fact, Chennai, Patna and many other cities are showing housefull boards.
No one even knew about Jujutsu Kaisen 0, except for loyal anime fans. However, with such numbers coming in, the film may see a huge increase in its screenings in the coming days. It may enjoy a long run in India and will certainly open theatrical doors for many other anime films in the future.
Helmed by Sunghu Park, it is a prequel to the Jujutsu Kaisen series.
