ABCD 2 Day 1 (Friday) Box Office Collections

Update: Any Body Can Dance 2 has collected Rs 14.3 crore on Friday, Day 1 at the domestic box office.

ABCD 2 has recorded the highest opening day collections of 2015, ahead of films like ‘Gabbar Is Back’, ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’, ‘Roy’ and ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’. The All-India collections are also higher than Hollywood films like ‘Fast and Furious 7’ and ‘Avengers – Age of Ultron’.

As per early estimates based on collections from a couple of circuits, ABCD 2 has collected Rs 13.5 – 14 crore on Day 1. When the final collections come in, the figures could be closer to the 15 crore mark. The collections of the film were outstanding even though business in Mumbai was affected by torrential rains throughout the day.

The first day box office collections of ABCD 2 is also the highest opening for a film starring Varun Dhawan and the second highest opener for Shraddha Kapoor after ‘Ek Villain’. With rains affecting major circuits like Mumbai and Mysore, ABCD 2 would have probably beaten the first day business of ‘Ek Villain’.

Overall, the film is set to be the second major hit of the year after ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’. The first weekend business should be around 46-47 crore mark. It could touch the 50 crore mark if rain subsides on Saturday and Sunday.

From a potential future superstar, Varun Dhawan has firmly established himself as one of the most bankable young stars in the country. Even in 2014, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania released during the Ramadan period and rains affected the business too. Yet the film not only opened well at around the 9 crore mark, but went on to do business of more than 80 crore.

But the Friday collections of ABCD2 has pushed him close to Ranbir Kapoor. He has a mega release like ‘Dilwale’ lined up for release later this year and that film will help him reach out to audience in smaller towns, due to Shah Rukh Khan’s presence.

  • That’s amazing.Have to accept Varun is a bankable star now.The trailer wasn’t great nor were the songs loved but still opening around 15 crores phenomenal

  • lol now Akki fans go and die somewhere.. despite of masala genre with partial holiday ur star can’t beat Varun and u guys compare him to biggest superstar Salman. First beat Varun then talk about Salman next time. Good night.

  • Never expected ABCD2 to do this much…
    Varun has that charming and mass attracting attributes..

    Wishing him all the best!!
    Will watch the film tomorrow,one of my friend watched it and loved it.

  • Great chance of doing 100crs now as there is no major competition in subsequent weeks.

    Ek villain had terrific music and catchy trailer full of suspense(though the film didn’t had any) but ABCD 2 had an average trailer,decent music.
    So u got to applaud Varun here.

    And not to forget Shraddha Kapoor,she’s a rising superstar along with Alia Bhatt.Both these actresses have more followers than any youngistaan actor but still we never give them the credit..That’s how our society is!!

  • @ indicine..
    well wnt to knw mumbai collections as there was heavy rains….
    u said previously that rain will affect a lot …but i think nt mch…cause due to rain collages offices n schools r closed so people might go n watch movie 2 hrs on holyday….or free times….sounds stupid bt i would rather prefer to watch a movie if i stuck in rain smwhere …. i will go to nearby multiplex….

  • Now Akki is no more a superstar….
    Varun Dhawan who is only 5 films old has beaten the first day collection of a Akki movie during a rainy season and Ramadan period…
    And some morons compare him with Khans…


  • RIP Akki and his fans. Now Ranbir, Sid and Varun have already beaten Akki in terms of stardom. Also actresses like Kangana, Shraddha and Alia Bhatt have also surpassed Akki.

  • Varun is next Salman…
    5 hit in a row…which is outstanding…
    Shraddha kapoor is already a big star…
    Performance wise shraddha is at the top ashiqui 2, haider, ek villain….
    just awesome….super hit..
    Easily cross 100 cr…

  • belive in karma….
    nw see …
    akki doing great films n have more talent than all youngistan combine bt effect on box office zero … reason after SINGH IS KING .. 4 films per year like khatta dana dan..boss..action replay to loyal fans
    BAD KARMA ..
    effect– baby n GIB gud films fell short of 100 cr
    VARUN..-average talent… gud dancer… work hard did 5 back to back gud films….all hits …
    effect . –god (audience ) gave
    him biggest yr opening n potential 100cr for average film….

  • @kshitiz stop this needles nari andolan.dont spoil my party mood. first critically acclaimed fairly recieved ddd and now blockbuster abcd2

  • So ABCD 2 will beat all Akki films this year. Akki should start begging now. Youngsters have already gone ahead of him. While khans, hrithik and ajay are still ruling. Akki is not needed in the industry. kick him out.

  • Akki has too many haters here!!

    Why not they target Ajay Devgn??
    Action jackson:57crs lifetime

  • @indicine: Who is this Floppy? You never revealed this guy,we have been asking since more than a year now..

  • Varun we are with u and beat flopkumar
    As I earlier said that after release of
    Dilwale varun can beat Ranbir and akki
    And can establish himself in 5th position!
    All the best now the movie has every chance of crossing 100 crore club .
    * my expectations were 85 crore to 107 crore so it will definitely reach it to 100 crore +…
    poor akki I am feeling pity on u !?

  • good to see a lot of people is feeling jealous of akshay…..
    if he is not a good actor then he would not be in bollywood for 25 years….
    he is one of the biggest superstar of bollywood…..
    ranveer, ranbir, siddarth, arjun can not even done 50% what akshay did in 25 year career… akshay haters it’s 25 years………

  • Hahaha how funny
    comparing This Varun To Biggest superstar of Indian cinema Khiladi king Akki Boss Gabbar Akshay Kumar .

  • We Akki fans r not insecure about these chillar party actors like varun .
    I wish ye movie 100 Kre & KreGgiiii ..!

  • Its not just about the cast as the music is awesome n doing so well as well as the trailer which clicked n its a hit franchise dont we know the ABCD brand directed by Remo d’souza n then the dancers work also.

  • Varun is enjoying success for one reason and one reason only which is that he turned down the chance to bat for the pink floppistan team headed by some buddhawale… Best decision ever

  • it’s affected by rain in Mumbai but did phenomenonal business and what Amazing fact film realised in Ramzan period so fans of salaman bhaai have to understand it is best period for business also you can’t blame less collection of his movie to this fact bcz even salman know its safe to realised his movie during Ramadan bcoz if movie will not open well he have an excuse for that Ramadan period never dull for business in past too movie doing great collection in this period for example bhaag milkha bhaag , ekk villian , Humpty sharma ki dulhaniya, lots of others and in recent abcd2 so fans don’t give silly excueses well done varun

  • Notice how the curse of some buddha never jinxed varun like it has for rks films or poor sushants or that fat arjunas films.,, pre release of rks films or fat arjunas or sushants the bengali village idiot would come here under the ID ‘arjun byomkesh fan’ or ‘ranbir besharam fan’ or ‘arjun finding fanny fan’ etc etc which irritated alot of fans but varun escaped that misfortune..!

  • Well done Varun- you are now a bigger star than floppy joker boy… Top 5 awaits you my young humpty highness
