Salman Khan and Aayush Sharma starrer Antim continued to surprise while John Abraham starrer Satyameva Jayate 2 was stable on its first Wednesday at the box office.
John Abraham and director Milap Zaveri second collaboration. Satyameva Jayate 2, is not working unlike the first part Satyameva Jayate which became one of the highest grossing film of John Abraham as a solo hero, collecting a massive Rs 90.39 crore against the budget of Rs 45 crore.
Due to extremely poor review, Satyameva Jayate 2 could collect only Rs 3.60 crore on Thursday which is extremely low. On the second day, the action drama went down to collect Rs 2.10 crore while Saturday and Sunday saw limited growth of Rs 2.20 crore and Rs 2.55 crore.
