Judwaa 2, starring Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez has reached apex hieghts of bussiness success, as it has become the 2nd highest grosser of the year, beating out the likes of Shahrukh Khan’s Raees and Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek premkatha. The comedy movie which is the sequel of Judwaa, from 1997, starring Salman Khan and directed by Varun Dhawan’s father, David Dhawan, has accumulated a total of 137 crore and seems to be going even higher across India and Oversees. This is a very good news for Varun Dhawan, since after getting poor to middling reviews, it wasn’t certain that the movie will be doing such great business, but it has trashed all the competition and came above, victorious.

The movie’s success is not entirely unexpected though, because as it enjoyed great weekend bow, there also wasn’t anything much to offer to the audiences in the name of entertaining cinema, and the word of mouth for the movie was indeed very strong, which caused people to check the movie out as they heard about it from their friends and family members.

It also means that other, lower budgeted movies with less superstars are going to suffer, and it has already been noticed in the B.O disappointment of Chef, staring Saif Ali Khan, which has the lowest B.O collection beginning of the year. The highest grossing movie of the year is still Baahubali 2.
