Film released in about two thousand three hundred screens in India in 2D, 3D and 4DX versions and has become the highest opening weekend grosser of 2015 so far.
ABCD 2 collected Rs 14.30 crore nett on Friday (June 19, 2015), on Saturday (June 20, 2015) it collected Rs 14.54 crore nett and on Sunday (June 21, 2105) the collections jumped to about Rs 17.51 crore nett; thus making it a total of Rs 46.35 crore nett at the end of it’s first weekend.
It’s obvious that the makers would say that they always knew that ABCD 2 had potential, it had the crackling chemistry of Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor and lastly it was part of a huge franchise.
Well, point taken, but the truth according to me has been it’s perfect timing or release. May 22, 2015 saw a huge furore at the Box Office thanks to Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
Post this followed a series of disasters like Welcome 2 Karachi (May 29, 2015), followed by Dil Dhadakne Do (June 05, 2015) and Hamari Adhuri Kahani (June 12, 2015).
The audiences, were desperate for some entertainment and in came ABCD 2, and as they say the rest is history.
What’s surprising is the fact that even the coming two weeks, have no major releases; June 26, 2015 will see the release of Bezubaan Ishq, Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho and Uvaa, while July 03, 2105 has Guddu Rangeela and Second Hand Husband ready for releases.
Looks like it’s party time for ABCD 2 till July 17, 2015 because then we have Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Based on the story of the Nalasopara based Fictitious Dance Group, ABCD 2 is a sequel to the 2013 ABCD (Any Body Can Dance).
The film stars Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles, who essay the roles of Suresh and Vinnie, a waiter and a hairdresser respectively.
Joined by dance, passion, and a common goal to win the World Starz Hip Hop Challenge in Las Vegas, Suresh and Vinnie are in this journey along with people who have the same dream.
ABCD 2 never got great reviews, even the content of this one was nothing that one could rave about, but the film has still managed a great first weeke...2.0
