Jolly LLB 2 Box Office Collection: CROSSES 50 CRORE In First Weekend!

Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 did stupendous business at the box office in the first three days of its release, crossing the Rs 50-crore mark easily in the first weekend. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the film’s business, “#JollyLLB2 has a TERRIFIC Sun. Goes from strength to strength. Fri 13.20 cr, Sat 17.31 cr, Sun 19.95 cr. Total: ₹ 50.46 cr. India biz.” If all goes well, the film is likely to earn Rs 100 crore soon.

Earlier, Jolly LLB 2 — which replaced Arshad Warsi with Akshay in the titular role — crossed the lifetime collection of the first instalment in mere three days. The lifetime collection of Jolly LLB, starring Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani, was Rs 32 crore, whereas Jolly LLB 2 has collected Rs 30.52 crore in just two days. The film saw a growth of 31.20% on its second day with a collection of Rs 17.31 crore, according to trade analyst Joginder Tuteja. If the movie crosses Rs 100-crore mark, Jolly LLB 2 will become Akshay Kumar’s fourth film in a row to have entered the elite club after Airlift, Housefull 3 and Rustom within 13 months.

Interestingly, Jolly LLB 2 started earning profit from the first day of its release as it had already recouped its cost — Rs 30 crore budget and Rs 15 crore promotion cost — before the release of the sale of music and satellite rights. Akshay Kumar film also surpassed Kaabil’s three-day collection of Rs 38.87 crore. The film, however, earned less than Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees released in January which earned a little over Rs 59 crore in the first three days.

Subhash Kapoor’s courtroom drama has certainly benefited from Akshay’s star power. Co-stars Annu Kapoor and Saurabh Shukla expressed that Akshay as an actor and star brings a different facet to the film. “To bring more star power to the sequel should not be considered crime. We all are here to do business. There’s nothing wrong in it. Akshay Kumar is the most saleable, commercially viable superstar of this era. Trade analysts have declared that,” said Annu Kapoor.
