Judwaa 2 box office collections starring Varun Dhawan: In what has turned out to one of the biggest surprises of the year, Judwaa 2 has defied all critics and managed to do really, really well at the box office. Critics had panned the movie as a reboot of Salman Khan starrer and that virtually every scene was a ditto copy of the earlier avatar and prediction was that it would bomb at the box office. But exactly the opposite has happened and crowds have lined up at cinemas to watch Dhawan trying to be Bhai. Looks like they liked it as the word of mouth boost is very strong and as a result day 2 has been enormously successful for the star and his director father David Dhawan, who himself had put Salman through his paces way back when the original movie was made. So how successful has the movie really been? Check this out, it will amaze you!
Day 1, which was Friday was a Navmi holiday for many and it was followed by Saturday vacay. More than that, Sunday’s holiday will be followed by Monday too as it is Gandhi Jayanti! The public will definitely go to cinemas in droves on holidays and that translates into a Box Office Bonanza. A four day extended weekend! This kind of break is usually hogged by the superstars like Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar. That Varun Dhawan got to use it speaks volumes about his credentials! And not just that, his film is a solo release and as such there is no other rival film releasing at the same time, allowing him to monopolise the cinemes! Truly, this is unique for any film.
Judwaa 2 cast includes Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Taapsee Pannu and Anupam Kher.
What were Judwaa 2 box office collections on day 1 and day 2? Well, on Friday, this new Varun Dhawan release earned as much as Rs. 16.10 crore and on Saturday it earned in excess of Rs 20 cr (final figures still to come in). The overall Judwaa 2 collections stand at Rs 36.10 cr! And considering all the holidays, the extended opening weekend will translate into a total that is more than Rs 55 cr! That is success on a massive scale.
