After the under-performed opening week, the second instalment in the franchise begun in 2012 with Student Of The Year has slowed down in its second week due to the release of Ajay Devgn starrer De De Pyaar De. Despite showing a positive uptrend over the second weekend, Student Of The Year 2 remained on the lower side.
Directed by Punit Malhotra, the Hindi teen drama got failed to impress many critics and received mixed reviews. As a result, it didn’t maintain the desired pace throughout and did the business of 57.90 crores in the first week that included 38.83 crores in the weekend & 19.07 crores on weekdays from 3100 screens across India.
Then in the second weekend as well, Student Of The Year 2 didn’t improve much and raked the business of 6.62 crores with 1.62 crores on Friday, 2.25 crores on Saturday & 2.75 crores on Sunday. Now the film has entered on weekdays once again and expectedly recorded a significant drop in footfalls.
On 2nd Monday, Karan Johar led Dharma Productions & Fox Star Studios’ production witnessed a drop of 23.33% vis-a-vis 2nd Friday and minted the amount of 1.24 crore. After 11 days, the total collection of SOTY 2 has become 65.76 crores nett at the domestic box office.
Being backed by the successful franchise, Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria & Ananya Panday starrer Student Of The Year 2 was expected to perform better at the box office. But the mixed word of mouth played a spoilsport and now it doesn’t seem to go past 75 crores in the lifetime.
