One doesn’t need to be a soothsayer to have predicted that Varun Dhawan’s JUDWAA 2 , a renovated remake of the super hit David Dhawan directed Salman Khan and Karisma Kapoor starrer JUDWAA, would embark on a bumper initial and was destined to be a hit, if not a super hit!
Well, things are progressing as per the script as JUDWAA 2, after opening to a 15.50 crore figure, notched up 20 crore plus figures on the two following days of the weekend. The additional Gandhi Jayanti holiday on the fourth day ensured a 75 crore plus total during the extended 4-day weekend.
What it means is that JUDWAA 2 will end the first week netting nearly 100 crore (estimated), thereby ensuring a sure shot hit to super hit status in the end count.
While that is about the Indian collections of JUDWAA 2, the latest offering from the youngest superstar, Varun Dhawan, is also on a good overseas run grossing nearly $3m, with £165,000 from UK and $605,000 from the US, during the opening weekend (September29-October 1).
