Judwaa 2 has been one of the most talked film since its announcement. The spiritual sequel to Salman Khan’s 1997 flick Judwaa stars Varun Dhawan, Taapsee Pannu, and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles. There has been a lot of excitement around Varun’s new release and the numbers that are already flowing in on its opening day are agreeing.

Reports state that Varun’s Judwaa 2 has managed to rack up USD 265,000 [Rs. 1.73 cr] within the overseas territories of UAE/ GCC market, which is a massive increase, compared to Varun’s previous releases. A 40% increase to be precise, over his previous release Badrinath Ki Dulhania. That also happens to break an Akshay Kumar record. The film made a 35% profit over Akshay Kumar starrer Jolly LLB 2. The film hasn’t earned the best of reviews, in fact, it has been yet another disappointment. However, Varun’s star power has helped him greatly.

The film has released in a whopping 3500+ screens in India, 625 overseas, and 4125+ screens worldwide. Also, the advance booking of the film has shown a great upward trend, helping it to a fantastic and solid opening release. This far the film seems set for a great opening day collection, and a sensational weekend, if the word of mouth doesn’t go sour. With a fantastic 60 per cent occupancy across India, according to trade expert Amul Vikas Mohan (exhibitor and distributor), the film should rake in Rs 14 – 15 crore on day one.
