Jolly LLB 2 has emerged the first hit of 2017 as it collected 3.50 crore nett on its second Friday and took its eight day total to 76 crore nett. The drop from day one is around 70% and the drop from Thursday is 20%. These ae fair holds. .
The second weed has chances to cross 15 crore depending on growth which should be huge on Saturday. It should cross the business of Kaabil before the weekend is out though will not reach the figures of Raees. Its looking a close of around 110 crore nett for the film at present. The business of Jolly LLB 2 till date is as follows.
First Week - 72,50,00,000
Friday (second) - 3,50,00,000
Total - 76,00,00,000
The new releases faring poorly helped the film as it continued to easily dominate the box office especially in the North where it is on a very good run. In East Punjba it may be come the highest grossing Akshay Kumar film of all time. In Delhi / UP it should have also got there but UP has let it down though it is much better at the start of the second week.
The film is set in UP but until yesterday the market was under performing Punjab and NCR. This was mainly as UP has a big ratio of business from singls screens as compared to multiplexes in Punjab and NCR.
Jolly LLB 2 had huge growth on its second Saturday as it grossed around 5.50 crore nett which takes its business to 9 crore in two days of its second weekend. The total business of the film is 82 crore nett in nine days.
The second weekend will do business around 16-17 crore nett depending on the Sunday growth which is a good second weekend. The business of the film will cross Kaabil by the end of its second weekend as that film stands at around 86 crore nett after 3 and a bit weeks. The business of Jolly LLB 2 till date is as follows.
Jolly LLB 2 Is A Hit, Set For 100 Crore In Quick Time
By Joginder Tuteja -February 18, 2017
Akshay Kumar has now delivered another Hit with Jolly LLB 2. The film brought in 4.14 crore on its second Friday post which the total reads as 81.85 crore. By the time the second weekend is through, the film would have collected almost three times the lifetime collections of Jolly LLB 2 [32 crore] and that too in 10 days flat!
The film has broken quite a few rules en route this success. It doesn’t have any hero-heroine angle per se. It doesn’t boast of any heroic ‘masala’ angle. It is set more than 50% on a single set (the courtroom). It is practically led and driven by the presence of one man (Akshay Kumar). It has a director at the helm of affairs (Subhash Kapoor) whose biggest hit was a 32 crore grosser (Jolly LLB). It has a big star leading the show but the cost of making has been less than 25 crore. It brings a couple of issues regarding the socio-political and judicial system of the country but without making much hullabaloo around it.
Still, it has done well, both critically as well as commercially!
Akshay Kumar has fast turned out to be the only superstar actor to be balancing his genres at a rapid pace and delivering cost effective profit churners in quick time, hence keeping the (money) ball moving in Bollywood!

The Akshay Kumar – Huma Qureshi starrer Jolly LLB 2 that released two weeks ago has been doing brisk business at the domestic and overseas box office.

Not surprisingly, Jolly LLB 2 manages to claim the second slot in the list with collections pegged at Rs. 185 cr. Though the film is still pretty far from rivalling the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees that released in January which collected Rs. 281.33 cr, it does manage to surpass the Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaabil that released alongside Raees and collected Rs. 177.46 cr. Similarly, the first big ticket release of 2017, Ok Jaanu that featured Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur seems to have literally fallen out of the race with worldwide gross collections pegged at just Rs. 39.19 cr.
