Student of The Year 2 got hit on Sunday from two sides with elections hitting its collections in Delhi and Haryana while IPL final meant it did not grow as much as it should have in other circuits. It collected in the 12.25-12.50 crore nett range on Sunday. The hit in the North was huge as East Punjab went from 1.25 crore nett on Saturday to just 84 lakhs on Sunday due to most of Haryana being shut.
it will be a similar scenario in Delhi / UP which will be down 80-85 lakhs due to elections. The other circuits were flat. If Gujarat grew on Sunday then Mumbai and Pune fell due to IPL to leave Mumbai circuit pretty much flat. The film was doing decent business and a normal Sunday would have given it an average weekend of around 41 crore nett plus but now it is less than 38 crore nett which means a below average weekend. If the trend had been strong on Saturday then the film would probably not have any problems covering the Sunday shortfall over the weekdays but with an average trend it may not be able to cover the ground lost on Saturday. The first three day collections of Student Of The Year are as follows.
Friday - 11,75,00,000 apprx
Saturday 13,50,00,000 apprx
Sunday - 12,50,00,000 apprx
TOTAL - 37,75,00,000 apprx
