‘Jolly LLB 2’ might just make it past the Rs 100-crore mark. For that it will need to earn at least Rs 15 crore this weekend. The Akshay Kumar-starrer courtroom comedy film earned a massive Rs 51 crore in its opening weekend. Since then, its box-office collection began to slow down and was at a standstill. For a while, it seemed like it wouldn’t be able to be a success on the scale of ‘Airlift’ or ‘Rustom’.
Well, Akshay Kumar can relax now, for yesterday, the film crossed the Rs 80-crore mark. To earn a minimum Rs 12 crore in the weekend shouldn’t be tough. However, ‘The Ghazi Attack’ has received rave reviews and is expected to give tough competition to Jolly LLB 2 at the box office.
Here is the complete day by day box-office collection of Jolly LLB 2:
Day 1 (10th Feb, Friday) – Rs 13.20 crore
Day 2 (11th Feb, Saturday) – Rs 17.31 crore
Day 3 (12th Feb, Sunday) – Rs 19.95 crore
Day 4 (13th Feb, Monday) – Rs 7.26 crore
Day 5 (14th Feb, Tuesday) – Rs 9.07 crore
Day 6 (15th Feb, Wednesday) – Rs 5.89 crore
Day 7 (16th Feb, Thursday) – Rs 5.03 crore
Day 8 (17th Feb, Friday) – Rs 4.14 crore
Total box-office collection of ‘Jolly LLB 2’ after nine days: Rs 81.85 crore
