ABCD 2 Box Office Prediction: Hit or Flop?

It’s difficult to make predictions for a film like ABCD 2, mainly because the film, like Tanu Weds Manu Returns, should take a decent opening both at single-screens and multiplexes. It also features a bankable star like Varun Dhawan, who has a 100% success ratio so far in his career. All his films have opened well at the box office too.

Opening day collections of Varun Dhawan films:

  • Student Of The Year – 8.25 crore
  • Main Tera Hero – 5.9 crore
  • Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania – 9.1 crore
  • Badlapur – 7.25 crore

His latest release ABCD 2 should be his biggest opener to date as advance booking of the film is better than films like Baby, Gabbar Is Back and even Tanu Weds Manu Returns.

As part of our #IndicineFBO predictions, we expect ABCD 2 to collect Rs 12.5 crore on Day 1. The fact that the film is also releasing in 3D should also give its business a decent boost at multiplexes.

In the long run, the film has plenty of open weeks before the release of Bajrangi Bhaijaan. If it carries appreciation, ABCD 2 should go on to be second 100 crore grosser of 2015 after Tanu Weds Manu Returns. There is the Ramadan factor and rains hitting Maharashtra too, which will both affect the business of the film.

  • Day 2 - 12 cr

  • Sequel to a successful film (ABCD)
  • Dance film in 3D
  • 4 open weeks at the box office. No major releases until Bajrangi Bhaijaan on July 17.

Factors against ABCD 2

  • Ramadan period
  • Southwest monsoon hitting major states like Karnataka and Maharastra


  • The sequel factor would somewhat have a positive influence on the movie.Nice to see Shraddha after a long time

  • See the Uae and gulf reviews…. Not looking great at all….!!…

    3rd back to back failure of june after DDD, hak….!!…

    Abcd2 getting bad reviews….

  • Even youngistaan actors get better release dates than Akki…

    Filmistaan clashed with Holiday
    Entertainment sandwiched between Kick n Singham returns
    Dolly ki doli clashed with BABY
    Gabbar is Back clashing with TimePass2,Uttama Villain..Piku next week

  • Even this movie will make 85-95crs and will cross lifetime collection of epic flops from gobbar kumar OUTIMD[60crs], Boss[55cr], entertainment[65crs], baby[87cr] and gib[81cr]. Akshay shud really retire and beg on streets of Nice,Fance and never come back to India.

    ABCD2 will cross d lifetime collections of industry redefining films and cult classics like Joker[20crs],Action Replayy[21crs],ThankYou & The Shaukeens it’s weekend’s biz only.

  • Very hard to predict this kind of movie !
    my pick – 66 crore to 88 crore .?
    and who knows it will be varun ‘ s 4th
    consecutive hits … it might flop ?
    but good luck varun as I know u check
    indicine especially when ur own movies
    are on the line…!!!
    expectation : 75 crore to 108 crore
    prediction : 66 crore to 88 crore

  • Looks like my guess has become true !
    1st indicine predicted 28 crore now 27
    crore … lol ?
    1st teaser disappointed and now the trailer and then the movie might also
    disappoint…. who knows?

  • It will get the profit of 4 open weeks running definitely it will be Varun’s first 100 crore movie 5th consecutive Hit and first Blockbuster.

  • ABCDs promos & Songgs Looking unimpressive .
    It Will Fail to beat Gabbar is back opening whether it’s advance booking is far better..!

    Opening Day 11.3 Cr ..!
    Shradha iz Far better then varun in the songs & promos .

  • this will difinately break the record marigold,main aur misses khanna,veer,yuvraj ….and abcd 2 do 80 times of marigold(1cr biggest diaster of indian cinema) …..3,4 &5 times of veer yuvraj main aur misses khanna…….. and 10 time of dobi ghat….. waiting for varun,s next with king

  • worlide collection of dilwale =800cr =bojpuri bhaijan+prdp+sultan+kick2…..only king rocks criminal and tingu shock

  • top 5 movie of 2015 (1) dilwale 300cr (2) brothers 240cr (3) singh is bling 200cr (4) bajirao mastani 170cr (5) tamasha 160cr

  • @babuji
    accept ….the fact that…youngistaan(rk&vd)..
    More liked by…youngsters…than akshay kumar

  • In kolkata it is set fr biggest opening of the
    Year beating previous top3 openers-roy baby and piku

  • new comers are no where near akhsay as well these all are media created stars imran hashmi is not media favourite thats the reason is is way behind nowadays even i can bet imran hashmi fan following is more than ranveer ranbir sidharth and varun

  • from which point of view happy new year or chennai express are a bad film, it has a good story, good logic, patriotism, good music and which point of view dhoom 3 or pk is good film, they have no logical story, no logical sequence, no good music

  • Abcd2 has already beaten Bhai’s epic disaster Marigold’s collection in advance booking.
    Will beat Main aur Mrs. khanna by noon tomorrow.
    Will beat yuvraj by end of the day.

  • is ajinyka really akki fan, same applies to these sunny chechi.why are you embarrassing other akkians by creating negative comments towards the upcoming young actors’s articles. Vrn is only 3 years in the industry and you’re comparing him with 47yr old actor who has been in these industry for more than 23 years.I sincerely ask sensible readers to ignore them.

  • Before the release, your prediction for #HAK was 7.2 crores.After your predictions didn’t come close, you made amendment! It’s now 5.75 crores.Don’t try to fool others!

  • Have been watching emraan hashmi movies back to back, started with kalyug, 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 god review to this and dil dhadkne do!

  • I think after ashique 2 2013 Shradda has apprx 100% success ratio.
    Out of 10 I give d star cast on awaited audience
    Varun 7
    Shraada 6.5
    So I think wit both of them am giving it 13.5 or around that range.
    Wish them luck!!

  • abcd’s weekend collection will be more than our flop king kumar’s christmas release cult classic Joker’s lifetime collection…

  • chal beta crapy le re ….abcd2=80times of marilod….without eid criminal,s result same as marigold ……waiting for dilwale biggest blockbuster of the hindi industry……..brothers will be 1st 200cr movie of the year followed by singh is blingg…….dilwale will be highest grosser of the year

  • brothers will be 2nd highest grosser of the year after dilwale …..brothers trailer 5/5 bojpuri bhaijan trailer 2.5/5 just above average nothing new in this movie ……even bojpuri bhaijan can,t beat lifetime box office yjhd …..its my open challenge………highest grosser dilwale 300cr. brother 250cr waiting for brothers ,drishyam,shandar,singh is blingh,ghayal returns, tamasha,wazir………..and mega epic movie dilwale
