Box-office: Akshay Kumar's ‘Jolly LLB 2’ earns 13 crore on day one


Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Jolly LLB 2’ hits the screens on Friday and the film is off to a great start. The film received rave reviews from the film critics and also received applause from the audience. The film collected Rs 13.20 crore on the opening day.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the first day collection of the film.

He tweeted: "Merits coupled with positive word of mouth should help garner a lucrative total on Saturday and Sunday." 

‘Jolly LLB 2’, which is a sequel to Arshad Warsi's 2013 film ‘Jolly LLB’ is funny and thought-provoking. Akshay Kumar plays the role of an advocate Jagdishwar Mishra. The courtroom drama features Annu Kapoor as an advocate and Jolly's professional rival and Saurabh Shukla is seen in the role of Justice Sunderlal Tripathi. Huma Qureshi plays the role of Jolly's wife Pushpa Pandey.

Trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted, “#JollyLLB2 opens fairly well today; reports r good all over. A lot of entertainment in the film. Akshay, Annu Kapoor & Saurabh Shukla excellent.” 

‘Jolly LLB 2’ tells the story of an amateur lawyer who hopes to make a big name in the field of criminal law. Instead he landed in a big trouble.

“A lot of credit for my performance in Jolly LLB 2 goes to Akshay as he was my co-actor as well as Annu Kapoor. If you like my performance in the film, it is due to these two actors. Akshay is a bigger star in terms of trade value. That’s completely a different area. But apart from being a star, he is a wonderful actor. That is his prime job. Akshay Kumar has time and again proved himself as an actor,” said actor Saurabh Sulha in an interview with indianexpress.com.

Positive words of mouth will surely drag audience to the theatres. The film is expected to see a growth on Saturday and Sunday.
