Varun Dhawan’s ‘Judwaa 2’ inching towards 100 crore club

David Dhawan’s latest release ‘Judwaa 2’, a sequel to his 1997 blockbuster film of the same name which starred Salman Khan in the duo was a box-office success.  ‘Judwaa 2’ starring Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu released last Friday took full advantage of the festive season and it is racing fast towards the 100 crore club.

On Gandhi Jayanti, ‘Judwaa 2’ crossed 80 crore club, making it the third highest grosser of 2017. The long weekend and holidays of Durga Puja/ Navratri, Dussehra and Gandhi Jayanti proved blessings for the comedy drama.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “The audience verdict is loud and clear: #Judwaa2 hits the BULL’S EYE... Emerges one of the best openers of 2017... Nears ? 60 cr mark... #Judwaa2 Fri 16.10 cr, Sat 20.55 cr, Sun 22.60 cr. Total: ? 59.25 cr. India biz... Will score BIG numbers again today [holiday]...The SMASHING opening weekend biz of #Judwaa2 proves yet again that well-made mass entertainers will never go out of fashion! Varun hits the ball out of the park... ? 20 cr biz on two consecutive days - a rare feat that very few actors can boast of... #Judwaa2.”

Here is the break-up of ‘Judwaa 2’ box-office collection till date:

Day 1: Friday (September 29) - Rs 16.10 crore

Day 2: Saturday (September 30) - Rs 20.55 crore

Day 3: Sunday (October 1) - Rs 22.6 crore

Day 4: Monday (October 2) - Rs 21.50 crore (approx)

Total (4 days) - Rs  80.75 crore (approx) 

 ‘Judwaa 2’ opened with mixed reviews from the critics but the audience accepted with it wholeheartedly.

Varun Dhawan perfectly fits the bill. He slips into the shoes of Salman Khan very well while Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu very well enact the role of Karisma Kapoor and Ranbha. The film made the audience nostalgic it reminds them of the original film.
