Jackpot is a 2013 Hindi comedy thriller directed by Kaizad Gustad starring Sunny Leone, Naseeruddin Shah and Sachiin J Joshi.[1][2][3][3] The film released on 13 December 2013 with 1150 screens release in India.[4][5][6] The movie was declared a flop both critically as well as commercially by Box Office India, with total earnings of just 50 million (US$770,000).


Francis (Sachiin J Joshi) packs in the muscle and has a can of beer always close at hand. He is also street-smart enough to impress Maya (Sunny Leone), the oomphy voice of reason in the movie. Boss Man (Naseeruddin Shah) is a veteran raver whose clothes are as colorful as his principles and punchlines. Slow in speech but quick to draw a six-shooter, he owns the Jackpot casino.



The majority of the shooting for the film was completed in Goa. Kaizad Gustad shot the film in 27 days.[7]


The soundtrack has 9 tracks. Sharib & Toshi, Mika, Remo Fernandes, Gods Robots (Shridevi Keshavan & Janaka Atugoda), Rishi Rich, Juno Reactor, Rahul Bhatt, Jaaved Jaaferi and Itek Bhutani composed one song each.

Censor Board axed the rap song 'Eggjactly' from the film as it was a bit vulgar, though the video of the song was released online.[8] The premiere of Jackpot was held at PVR Cinemas in Juhu, Mumbai, on 12 December 2013 to which Shahrukh Khan, Urvashi Sharma and other celebrities came.[9][10][11] Sunny Leone promoted the film in various cities like Gurgaon, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Bangalore (Inorbit Mall).[12] Sunny Leone and Sachin also promoted the film on the shows 'Bigg Boss 7' and 'Comedy Circus Ke Mahabali'.[13][14][15]

Jackpot grossed 10 million (US$150,000) on day one.[4][16] It grossed 34.5 million (US$530,000) on domestic box office in its first weekend. The film had a poor first week collection of 45 million (US$690,000).[17]
