Judwaa 2 Box Office Collection: Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Taapsee Pannu starrer Judwaa 2 hit the silver screen on September 29, 20 years after the original Judwaa movie starring Salman Khan first aired. Both the films have been directed by David Dhawan and have been produced by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. The film has emerged as one of the best openers of 2017, according to movie critic and business analyst Taran Adarsh. The film enjoyed an extended weekend with Monday being a holiday and has managed to benefit from it. The film earned Rs 16.10 crore on its opening day and by the end of the opening weekend it earned Rs 59.25 crore. The film released across 3500+ screens in India and it has been raking in the moolah.
While comparing Judwaa 2 collections to previous releases of 2017, it can be seen that the film has been able to surpass Akshay Kumar starrer Toilet Ek Prem Katha that has released in the month of August. While the Akshay Kumar starrer garnered Rs 13.10 cr on its opening day, Judwaa 2 earned Rs 16.10 crore. By the end of their opening weekend, Toilet Ek Prem Katha had earned Rs 51.45 crore while the Varun Dhawan starrer has earned Rs 59.25 crore.
Though the collection of Judwaa 2 is yet to surpass the biggest grossers of the year like Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Raees, Tubelight, Jolly LLB 2, etc, its collection look promising as it is headed towards the 100 crore club. According to Bollywood Hungama, Judwaa 2 has become the 9th highest grosser of 2017 and it has surpassed the lifetime collections of Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal in just four days.
While Judwaa 2 has managed to do well, considering the extended holiday including Gandhi Jayanti, its collection has translated into a spectacularly big big total – a luxury that was not available to Akshay Kumar’s film. Akshay’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha had garnered Rs 13.10 crore on Day 1, while on Day 2 it had made business of Rs 17.10 crore. Movie critic and biz analyst Taran Adarsh had Tweeted, “#ToiletEkPremKatha witnessed FANTASTIC growth on Sat… Strong word of mouth is translating into MASSIVE numbers… #TEPK.” “#ToiletEkPremKatha Fri 13.10 cr, Sat 17.10 cr. Total: ₹ 30.20 cr. India biz… ₹ 48 cr [+/-] weekend on the cards… SUPERB… #TEPK.”
