More than Varun Dhawan, daddy David must be a happy man today. He has turned out two box office superhits with the same script, mostly same jokes but a different cast (son Varun replaces Salman Khan in Judwaa 2). As Judwaa 2 earns Rs 77.25 crore at the box office in the extended weekend – Monday was a holiday due to Gandhi Jayanti – it is also a win for Varun who has delivered two superhits, Badrinath ki Dulhania being the first, this year. Judwaa 2 also stars Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez.
Taking to Twitter, trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Tuesday, “#Judwaa2 crosses ₹ 75 cr mark... Fri 16.10 cr, Sat 20.55 cr, Sun 22.60 cr, Mon 18 cr. Total: ₹ 77.25 cr. India biz. OUTSTANDING!”
He has been quite effusive in the praise of the film which has come in a year marked by disappointing superstar vehicles. Earlier, he had written, “The SMASHING opening weekend biz of #Judwaa2 proves yet again that well-made mass entertainers will never go out of fashion!, adding, “Varun hits the ball out of the park… ₹ 20 cr biz on two consecutive days – a rare feat that very few actors can boast of… #Judwaa2.” Judwaa 2 has done exceptionally well internationally too.
