The film has a bumper opening in East Punjab and Delhi as it opened to 90% occupancy in the morning shows. The opening was the highest ever in the history of Punjabi cinema.

Sardar Ji 2 collections on its first day has beaten all opening records in the history of Punjabi cinema. Meanwhile, Diljit is riding high on the success of his Bollywood debut Udta Punjab. The Bollywood film opened well in India, especially in the Northern region. It is an unimaginable feat to have bumper openings in consecutive weeks. Diljit Dosanjh can be called Salman Khan of Pollywood. Sardaar Ji 2 collection is almost unbelievable to beat as it alone has beaten all new Bollywood releases despite being a regional film.
However, Sardar Ji 2 has received a mixed response from the audience so far. It will be interesting to see how it will fold in coming days. The previous version, which was released in 2015, had also opened to thunderous response worldwide. Sardar Ji had minted Rs. 2.40 crore on its opening day. Following the success of Sardaarji, the makers decided to go ahead with the second instalment, but now it remains to be seen whether the film will break the records of its first film at the box office or not.
