Judwaa 2 box office collection day 17: Varun Dhawan’s film earns Rs 133.03 crore at the end of the third weekend set to beat Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu’s Judwaa 2 is having a fantastic run at the domestic box office!
Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu‘s Judwaa 2 has set the box office on fire ever since it released on September 29. The film has been on a phenomenal run at the domestic box office and over the third weekend, it raked in another Rs 7.19 crore (Friday + Saturday + Sunday) to take its overall tally to Rs 133.03 crore in seventeen days. As trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed on Twitter, “#Judwaa2 – Week 1: Rs 98.08 crore. Week 2: Rs 27.76 crore. Weekend 3: Rs 7.19 crore. Total: Rs 133.03 crore. India biz. SUPERHIT.” Talking about the detailed box office collections of the third weekend, Taran mentioned on Twitter, “#Judwaa2 [Week 3] Fri Rs 1.72 crore, Sat Rs 2.65 crore, Sun Rs 2.82 crore. Total: Rs 133.03 crore. India biz. SUPERHIT.”
We always knew that Judwaa 2 would perform well considering the huge buzz, fantastic story line and decent screen space that it garnered. However, we never thought it would compete with and beat the lifetime collections of Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan films. In fact, we expect Judwaa 2 to beat Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha today (October 16) and become the third highest grosser of 2017. The film will then go on to compete against Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees to become the second highest grosser of the year. Won’t that be a great achievement by the movie?
In the meantime, Judwaa 2 was made on a budget of just Rs 50 – 60 crore (landed cost). Knowing, that the music, digital and satellite rights have been sold at a decent rate, the makers have made a profit of more than Rs 100 crore. It has also become Varun’s highest grosser ever. Ain’t this fantastic? Anyway, what did you think about the movie?
