ABCD 2 has shown excellent growth in business on Sunday, with net collections of around Rs 16.5 crore, as per early estimates based on collections from a few centres. The collections could even be higher and closer to the 17 crore mark, because some centres, especially in the Mumbai circuit, have shown phenomenal growth on Sunday. The 3D version of the film had very high occupancy throughout the day.
The first weekend business is around the 45-46 crore mark, which is excellent for a film like ABCD 2. The collections are comparable to last year’s Ek Villain, a film that collected Rs 49 crore in its first weekend.
While Ek Villain finished with lifetime collections of Rs 103 crore, ABCD 2 has a chance to collect more as it has 3 open weeks at the box office.

In fact, ABCD 2 is the first film to cross the 40 crore mark in its first weekend, beating films like ‘Gabbar Is Back’, ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’, ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and ‘Baby’.
