ABCD 2 has taken the box office by storm. According to official figures ABCD 2 Friday box office collection will be 14.30 crore.
It was released in 2500 screens. The film had a very good opening of 50% in the morning shows. As the day progressed it showed growth especially in multiplexes. The 3D version performed better. In the evening shows the occupancy was 70-80%. While there were reports of houseful at many small centers.
The opening was best in Gujarat and Jaipur. While it was good in Delhi and East Punjab. The major city Mumbai was affected by heavy rains. Otherwise ABCD 2 day 1 box office collection would have easily crossed 15 crore.
ABCD 2 has set record for the highest opening day of 2015. The previous best was held by Akshay Kumar starrer Gabbar Is Back. But that film was released on a holiday while ABCD 2 was released in a Ramadan period.
Varun Dhawan has earlier given four consecutive hits. This should be his fifth. With ABCD 2 taking grand opening, Varun Dhawan has now entered into the list of elite stars. He has become the most bankable young star.
