Drishyam 2 starring Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Akshaye Khanna has witnessed a growth in the second-day collections at the box office. Directed by Abhishek Pathak, the crime-thriller had an excellent first Saturday. After becoming the third movie from Bollywood in 2022 to have the biggest opening, Drishyam 2 has raked in around 36 crore nett in the day two box office collections.
The Ajay Devgn starrer managed to beat Akshay Kumar‘s film Ram Setu with its release day collections of around 15 crore nett. With the phenomenal trend set for the Drishyam 2 collections, on the second day, the Abhishek Pathak directorial collected 21 crore nett.
So far, going by the Drishyam 2 collections, the movie is looking to cross the 50 crore mark by the first weekend, despite the post-pandemic era. On the first Saturday, the Ajay Devgn starrer had an excellent day as it saw a 40% rise in collections.
Here are the Drishyam 2 box office collections so far:
Friday – 15,00,00,000 apprx
Saturday – 21,00,00,000 apprx
TOTAL – 36,00,00,000 apprx
With the trend set by Drishyam 2 on the second day, in the post-pandemic era where films hardly manage to pick pace, the sequel is aiming for a 60 crore nett in the first weekend.
A Box Office India report stated, “The film (Drishyam 2) has got the sort of jump on Saturday that has even been a struggle for the smaller films which dont open. The growth on Saturday has been very difficult post the pandemic and its nowhere close to what was happening before but for Drishyam 2 its a totally different story.”
Meanwhile, the Abhishek Pathak directorial was released in theatres on Friday, November 18. The movie also stars Shriya Saran, Rajat Kapoor, Ishita Dutta and Mrunal Jadhav, reprising in their roles from the prequel.
