Akshay Kumar-starrer, which is already in the Rs 100 cr club, managed to stay steady on its day 13 of release too. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest collections of the film. Akshay Kumar’s middle class act, his scooter rides and his small-town nuances continue to strike a chord with the audience.
Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#JollyLLB2 [Week 2] Fri 4.14 cr, Sat 6.35 cr, Sun 7.24 cr, Mon 2.48 cr, Tue 2.45 cr, Wed 2.07 cr. Total: ₹ 102.44 cr. India biz.”
This courtroom drama is surely a hit in every possible manner. So much so that fans are returning to the theaters for a second watch, just to laugh a little more at actor Saurabh Shukla’s crisp dialogues, applaud Annu Kapoor’s performance and feel connected with Jagdishwar Mishra a.k.a Jolly, played by Akshay. Hence, when it crossed Rs 100 crore on Tuesday, it did not look surprising.
Running in its third week, and is easily taking over the week’s new releases – The Ghazi Attack, Irada and Running Shaadi.

Akshay has already given four back-to-back hits in the last 14 months. The actor met the media to celebrate the success of Jolly LLB 2 and gave a classic reply when asked about what mattered more – box-office numbers or the love of audience.
“Love, of course. We’ve made too much money. It is more important I work on a film with a good script and has a good director and a good studio. This film is my first with Shubhashji. Once I like someone, I like working with them. I hope my future films do well too, like the one I am producing, Naam Shabana and Toilet Ek Prem Katha,” Akshay said.
The makers have already hinted that a third film in the installment is also in the pipeline. Jolly LLB 2 is a sequel to the Arshad Warsi film, which released in 2013. The latest one also stars Huma Qureshi.
