ABCD 2 Box Office Opening: Best start of 2015

Varun Dhawan has done it again. The presence of the most bankable star amongst the new generation of actors, has ensured that ABCD 2 has taken the best opening of the year so far.

At most centres, the opening of ABCD 2 was better than Akshay Kumar’s Gabbar Is Back and the occupancy at multiplexes was better than a multiplex film like ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’.

The average occupancy in the morning was around 50-55%. In Mumbai city the opening was lower at around 40-45%, but that was only because of heavy rains in the city.

The opening was excellent in Mysore circuit, two cities like Bangalore and Mangalore have opened very well in the morning.

At major cities, the start is better than all Hindi films that have released so far this year, including the likes of Roy, Gabbar Is Back and Dil Dhadakne Do.

The first day business is almost certain to be above the 10 crore mark and there is a possibility that business could touch 15 crore, if the film picks up towards the end of the day.

  • ABCD 2 – 55%
  • Tanu Weds Manu Returns – 45%
  • Gabbar Is Back – 45% (partial holiday)
  • Roy – 38%
  • Detective Byomkesh Bakshi – 35% (holiday)
  • Badlapur – 30%
  • Tevar – 30%
  • Dil Dhadakne Do – 25%
  • Baby – 25%
  • Bombay Velvet – 20%
  • Piku – 18%
  • Shamitabh – 15%
  • NH10 – 15%
  • Mr X – 10%
  • Dum Laga Ke Haisha – 8%


  • i don’t like varun but i’m happy for shraddha kapoor she deserves this love u shraddha this girl will soon become no.1 female superstar in coming years mark my words

  • Sure a double digit first day…and 40+ chores weekend……another superhit for varun and beautiful shraddha

  • Ranbir is most bankable among younger stars and most popular. Besharam & BV being bad films doesn’t change that. Also if opening is criteria then Sid has Ek Villain which was near 20cr last year….

  • Shraddha no.1 actress? She shouldn’t be as she’s average in acting and above average in looks. Sad to see star kids (varun, sid, ranveer, arjun, shraddha, sonakshi etc) who are average actors getting films over talented actors.

  • Pritam bad days are here , he was given work of BB and Dilwale , the first 2 songs of BB suck to the core

  • youth bunks school colleges and come on first show first day therefore opening is good but word of mouth and ramdan will hurt it in long run. Movie is front loaded affair

  • Delighted that my Varun has not been inadvertedly affected by the jinx /curse of the manoos some buddhawale

  • Varun Dhawan is going to give tough competition to youngistan captain Ranbir Kapoor now,he is not far behind him now.
    Opening is definitely above expectations!!

  • If it will get a 10+ opening..den indeed varun is the upcoming superstar.
    An average trailer n poor songs..but still a healthy occupancy..i must say dis guy is here to stay.probably wil compete wid ranbir

  • big varun fan… bt didnt like varun in ABCD at all,..
    this is reward for SOTY TO BADLAAPUR… consistancy… n dnt frget shradhha is most popular afetr aliya….
    FINALLY ….

  • Way to go Varun, I didn’t seen abcd first part and not interested in abcd 2 but only due to varun I will watch when it aired on TV. This is second year in a row when varun dhawan movie release in Ramdan period, last year HSKD did fantastic business despite bring an average film and now abcd2 taken biggest opening of the year, if there is no rain in Mumbai than it will definitely have biggest opening day number as in Maharashtra these kind of film perform better still it will have top/second highest opening day figure.
    I hope Varun will score hatrick of hit with this movie after hskd,badlapur. Any way he will have 5 successful films in a row begining of his career, soon be 6 when dilwale release.

    @ajinkya feeling sad for you.

  • Have been watching emraan hashmi movies back to back, started with kalyug,ek thi dayan,jannat,dil toh baccha hai ji,The Killer then awarapan, then jannat 2, then shangai and now finally hamari adhuri kahani!!!

    Abcd2 deserves 2 flop if a great film like hak does below average business. Sure it had it’s flaws, but it was stil better than most films.

    Im a huge fan of emraan hashmi suddenly noticed, after akshay, my favourite is emraan hashmi, followed by salman and then finally saif ali khan. From youngsters, favourite is ranbir and then varun. Varun was good in previous movies but this does not deserve any kind of collection to be honest.

    And shame on reviewers who gave bad review to hamari adhuri kahani but will give good review to this and dil dhadkne do!

    Abcd2 deserves 2/5 ratings at most.. Dil dhadakne do 1/5..

  • “The most bankable star among his generation” really…..
    His film hardly crosses 50cr mark without an alia or shraddha…..
    I know you guys at indicine like him a lot and thus are biased towards him but this isn’t a fan club it’s kind of a trade site so you need to go with the rest of the world rather than with the fan boy in you
    Accept it ranveer and sidharth are more bankable than him …..
    I know you won’t post my comment but it’s okay I just wanted you guys to know it and now accept it that he is just an overacting son of a big director and nothing else stop promoting untalented star kids. ….

  • Yes nice to see varun dhawan but how can u forget shraddha kapoor…. She is Big star now…
    100 cr is possible…

  • @Ajinkya…
    WOM is excellent and it will be a clean hit…
    So u shut up..
    I think u r the biggest flop.

  • wait wait…..
    i read sm reviews its vey negative…
    they say its only video package on varun shraddha n prabhudeva..

  • Awesome well done Varun. Online community greatly underestimates Varun’s reach and popularity in the real world. He exceeds expectations each time.

    really now.

    what his fans will say about this ?

    tnwr did more than all akki’s films being a normal release nd with lesser screens.

    now see , abcd 2 opening is bigger than both baby nd gabbar.

    overseas me piku nd twmr both have beaten baby nd gabbar.

    whats going on ?

    nd his fans are calling him bigger than khans as he doesnt release on holidays.

    what will u say now ??

    even on normal days young stars are beating u.


  • gabbar had 2 partial holidays in first 4 days excluding sunday.
    baby has 2 holidays in first 4 days.
    final result ??


    more jokes please.

  • @srk
    If youngsters is bigger than bhagwaan than why srk begged solo release date for CE ….

  • Final result of baby & gabbar both hit
    Ur haklu khan don’t cross 2000cr and bhagwaan cross 2500cr with brothers
