Varun Dhawan’s Judwaa 2 fails to BEAT Baahubali 2, Tubelight, Raees on day one; becomes the fourth highest box office opener of 2017


Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu‘s latest release – Judwaa 2 has raked in Rs 16.10 crore on the opening day, giving it a fantastic start at the domestic box office. This has not only given it a platform to grow over the first weekend and rake in a large amount of money, but also helped it enter the list of top 5 highest box office opener of 2017. And while Varun’s Judwaa 2 was able to beat Shah Rukh Khan‘s Jab Harry Met Sejal on day one, it failed to defeat Prabhas’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Salman Khan’s Tubelight and SRK’s Raees. With that the latest release is now the fourth highest opener of 2017.

If you check the opening day figures of all the movies released in 2017, you will understand what we are saying. Currently, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion leads the way with a first day collection of Rs 41 crore. Tubelight, Raees, Judwaa 2 and Jab Harry Met Sejal complete the top 5 list. As trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed on Twitter, “Top 5 openers – 2017: 1. #Baahubali2 Rs 41 crore, 2. #Tubelight Rs 21.15 crore, 3. #Raees Rs 20.42 crore, 4. #Judwaa2 Rs 16.10 crore, 5. #JHMS Rs 15.25 crore.

In the meantime, Judwaa 2 continues to impress the audience. The film has got decent reviews from the critics as well as the public. Our film critic – Tushar P Joshi also mentioned in his review that the film is “super entertaining and people should make it their weekend watch.” With a fantastic word of mouth publicity building for Judwaa 2, we expect it to rake in more than Rs 50 crore over the first weekend. While Baahubali 2 might be out of reach, we wonder if Varun Dhawan’s film can give Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan’s films a run for their money over the first weekend.
