It seems that in the year of 2017, even though the box office has been going through quite a drought of considerable collections, there were movies that made quite a good difference in collections through their opening days!
Judwaa 2 has made quite the opening day collection, with the holidays and also the commercial movie’s comic and entertainment quality. It has sustained its marketing to bring the right amount of audience to beat the Shahrukh Khan starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal. Not just that, but now the only movies above this comedy remake are Baahubali, Tubelight and Raees, That makes it fourth largest opening day collection film.
In terms of all-time box office collection, it stands at the rankings of 28th beating movies like Housefull 2, Ram Leela, Gunday and Race 2. Where Bahubali – The Conclusion remains at the top with a killer 40 crore nett plus, there’s Tubelight and Raees in the 20 crore nett bracket. That brings both Judwaa 2 and Jab Harry Met Sejal in the 15 crore nett bracket.
