Judwaa 2 is a remake of 1997 Salman Khan film Judwaa and it has been declared a superhit by industry analysts after it ruled the box-office in its first week and there is now no looking back.
It must be surely a week to rejoice for Varun Dhawan as his recent release Judwaa 2 has become an extremely successful movie. Judwaa 2 is a remake of 1997 Salman Khan film Judwaa and it has been declared a superhit by industry analysts after it ruled the box-office in its first week and there is now no looking back – however, initially it was panned for being a reboot and not a remake of the Salman movie and those analysts are having to eat humble pie now. Sharing the screen with two Bollywood divas Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu, Varun must be on cloud nine as the movie has become his highest week one grosser. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and claimed that the movie so far has collected Rs 98.08 cr in Week 1 and is looking strong to enter Rs 100 cr club today. In his tweet he wrote: “#Judwaa2 is Varun Dhawan’s HIGHEST Week 1… Collects close to ₹ 100 cr in Week 1… Will enter ₹ 100 cr Club today [Fri]… REMARKABLE…”
All that is very well, but the fact remains that the movie just suffered a hiccup – it failed to turn into a Rs 100 cr movie in week 1. That would rankle a bit for sure. After all, David Dhawan, who is the father of Varun, is looking to turn his son into a brand that would rival Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar.
Adarsh also shared latest figures, and the break-up for all the past t days collections of David Dhawan directorial film. “#Judwaa2 Fri 16.10 cr, Sat 20.55 cr, Sun 22.60 cr, Mon 18 cr, Tue 8.05 cr, Wed 6.72 cr, Thu 6.06 cr. Total: ₹ 98.08 cr. India biz. SUPERHIT” he wrote.
After a phenomenal occupancy rate in Week 1, will Judwaa 2 be able to survive for the second week amidst competition with some recent upcoming movies including Saif Ali Khan’s Chef? Looking at the response, Junior Dhawan is expected to give tough fight to Chef as the movie has successfully managed to mint decent numbers throughout the week.
Adarsh also stated that Week 2 would be much crucial for Judwaa 2 as it will decide if the movie can emerge as the highest grosser of 2017 after Baahubali 2. “Week 2 is crucial for #Judwaa2… Week 2 will decide if it can emerge the HIGHEST GROSSER of 2017, after #Baahubali2… Hindi films…,” he wrote.
