Sardaarji smashed all box office records for Punjabi films beating the records of Sardaarji released last year. The East Punjab circuit could probably have gone higher as last year Sardaarji had weaker competition for screens. The gap it set record collections in other circuits was far higher than in Punjab. The all India collections will be around 2.75 crore nett mark. The top five opening days in East Punjab for Punjabi films are as follows.
- Sardaarji 2 - 2.05 crore (All India 2.75cr Plus)
- Sardaarji - 2.02 crore
- Ambarsariya - 1.58 crore
- Jatt & Juliet 2 - 1.26 crore
- Angrez - 1.06 crore
The occupancy was fantastic in East Punjab and Delhi city. It was the highest of the year and no Hindi or English film has recorded higher occupancy in East Punjab and Delhi city than Sardaarji 2 be it Udta Punjab, Fan, Housefull 3 or The Jungle Book.
The top four initials are all Diljit Dosanjh starrers and the way things are going it could even be that the top five initials could belong to him which is unbelievable and has probably never happenned in any industry.
Basically its a one man industry as far as male leads go. Another stastic to highlight this is that the two Diljit Dosanjh starrers Ambarsariya and Sardaarji 2 combined have collected more than all the other 18 Punjabi films put together on the first day in East Punjab.
