The sequel to 2013 hit, Jolly LLB 2 has garnered second highest opening of 2017, right behind Shah Rukh Khan's Raees. Though the opening of the film is below expectations, it is expected to see a growth on its second and thrid day. Posting the figures, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#JollyLLB2 Fri ₹ 13.20 cr. India biz... Merits coupled with +ve word of mouth should help garner a lucrative total on Sat and Sun." The film has garnered mostly positive reviews but that didn't show up in its opening day numbers, as these numbers are basically on the Akshay Kumar's pull at the box office.
During the exclusive chat, our trade expert – Amul Mohan (Editor of Super Cinema) revealed to us, "The buzz around Jolly LLB 2 is great. I guess it will open to a day one collection of Rs 11 crore. It has started off decently and with Akshay Kumar coming back after a phenomenal year, I guess it will open on the same wavelengths like his other films did in 2016. So Rs 11 crore is what I feel the film will make today, but it could be Rs 10 crore or Rs 12 crore or more depending on the content."

Another of our trade expert – Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) had revealed to us earlier, "I think on day 1, Jolly LLB 2 will make a bare minimum of Rs 13-14 crore. Could be Rs 15 crore too. And over the weekend, if it does carry a good word of mouth publicity as the promos indicate, I won’t be surprised to see it earn Rs 45-50 crore. Considering that it is a non-holiday release, these figures are really very good."
