‘Drishyam 2’ has witnessed a drop of only 60 per cent from last weekend and stands at a total collection of Rs 215 crore nett, reports boxofficeindia. ‘Drishyam 2’ continues to earn big in Maharashtra, Gujarat and CPCI. The film is expected to cross Rs 90 crore nett in Mumbai, beating the figures of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Kabir Singh’ and ‘Sultan’ in this circuit. In the coming week, ‘Drishyam 2’ will face further competition from ‘Cirkus’.
Speaking about the film’s success, Ajay had told ETimes, “The box office of a film is gratifying. I am happy that Drishyam 2 continues to surpass expectations at the ticket windows in India and overseas. Frankly I am happy as much for myself as the people who made this film— (Abhishek Pathak, director) Tabu, Akshaye Khanna, Rajat Kapoor, Ishita Dutta and Mrunal Jadhav, Rockstar DSP (music director) and all the other co-actors and technicians; but I am also rejoicing for the film industry because we are going through a trying phase. We need films, (being altruistic), all films to collect money because we need to keep the film economy running. Post the pandemic, there have been sporadic hits. This is a worrying thing for us as an industry. After all, it is only the box office that can save the trade—be it us—actors, producers, directors, exhibitors, distributors, so on and so forth.”
