2 States has managed to do the unthinkable. The film has collected almost as much as a big film like Salman Khan’s Jai Ho in both the domestic and international markets.
2 States has also collected more on 16 out of the 21 days in its first 3 weeks, with Jai Ho only collecting more on its first 5 days at the box office. To put things into perspective, Jai Ho released on twice the number of screens as 2 States and was also sold for more than twice the price of 2 States.
While 2 States is likely to finish its run with net box office collections of around 104 – 105 crore, Jai Ho collected 112.49 crore at the domestic box office. Overseas too, the Alia Bhatt – Arjun Kapoor film is likely to fall just short of the Salman Khan starrer.
