Team Judwaa 2 has done it! Not just the film has emerged as a major Superhit, it is now also entering the record books, what with the film’s collections going past another Superhit of the year, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha.
The film has accumulated 134.28 crores so far and in the process, it has gone past the lifetime numbers of Toilet – Ek Prem Katha [134.25 crores].
The Varun Dhawan starrer enjoyed a healthy run in its first week but more importantly it went on to have good follow through in the second week as well despite the release of Chef [which proved to be a non-starter]. Post that, with no competition whatsoever, it had an open run in the third weekend which ensured that the journey towards the next milestone was faster than expected. That resulted in the David Dhawan directed film to sprint well in its endeavor for further records, the results of which can be seen now.
