12 Days Collection of Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2
Akshay Kumar has returned to silver screen with his new court drama movie Jolly LLB 2. Movie did not have to struggle much to collect decent figures in these 12 days. This is yet another instance of the superstar’s consistent run for more than a year now. If in 2015 he scored a few 80s [Singh Is Bliing, Gabbar Is Back, Brothers] and also entered the 90s [Baby], there were three centuries to his name in 2016 [Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom]. Now with Jolly LLB 2 scoring a century too with ease, one looks forward to how do Toilet – Ek Prem Katha and PadMan, two truly unconventional films, score this year.
Of course there is a biggie in 2.0 and for that it would have to be seen how much further does it go past the Rs. 100 crore mark in the Hindi version. Movie is going through a hard time these weekdays but we all expected it to come in top list of 2017 just like his previous hits Housefull 3 & Rustom did. Second Tuesday has resulted in total collection of 2.45 crores which is not too high.
Director Subhash Kapoor has scored a Hit with Jolly LLB 2 and Fox Star Studios too is seeing a good consistent run with a good kick-start to 2017, after a positive play in 2016 [Neerja, Kapoor & Sons, M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil]. Jolly LLB easily becomes Akshay Kumar’s fourth hit in a row after Rustom, Airlift and Housefull 3. Made on a small budget, all these films did a great business. Rustom, Airlift and Housefull 3 collected Rs 127.44 crore, 129 crore and 109 crore.
Earlier, his Holiday earned Rs 112.65 crore, Rowdy Rathore made and Rs 131 crore and Housefull 2 made Rs 114 crore. However Jolly LLB 2’s box-office express picked up pace in its second weekend. None of the recent Bollywood releases like The Ghazi Attack or Hollywood films like The LEGO Batman Movie could stop Jolly LLB 2 in its tracks. Akshay Kumar, now, is one happy man.
