‘Carry on Jatta’ was released in 2012 and it turned out to be a very big blockbuster that shattered box office records heavily for a Punjabi film. The sequel got released in 2018 and is still doing wonders in Punjab and other parts of country as well. This film is officially the biggest opener in the history of Punjabi films and has become Gippy’s most massive success as well. On Friday film opened to 3.61 crores out of which 3.05 crores were only in Punjab. The hype of first part has certainly lived upto the expectations and trailer clearly worked it’s magic.
Gippy is a very busy musician and actor which is why it took 6 years for the sequel to emerge but it will certainly be shorter amount of time for the third part. Word of mouth from the audience is immense which is why the film saw a growth of large sum as it banked 4.51 crores on the second day. Second day collections are mostly made up of entire North India as there are many Punjabi speaking people in Delhi as well. Gippy’s fan following is cross border as well and obviously in Canada the film will gross a major number due to maximum Punjabi population and it also gives certain strength to Punjabi film maker.
Film has grossed 8.11 crores only in two days as it may have recovered the budget already. If the golden run continues then it might end up becoming the highest grossing film of all time in Punjab industry which would really shake up the shackle of Jimmy Shergill. Jimmy is the biggest star in that industry but Diljit and Gippy are catching up soon as Sajjan Singh was a blockbuster. By the end of weekend is expected to gross 14 crores which would be dazzling for the makers.
