Akshay Kumar's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha released in August to salvage the box office of dullness - it made Rs 83.45 crores in five days, which is two crores less than what Varun's movie has collected in the same duration. However, Judwaa 2 lags behind the records fetched by last year's box office biggies by a noticeable margin - Salman Khan's Sultan was at Rs 105 crore in three days while Dangal was at Rs 107 crore.
Judwaa 2 also stars Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez as Varun Dhawan's two heroines. It is a sequel to Salman Khan's 1997 cult comedy Judwaa and is also directed by Varun's father David Dhawan, who helmed the first part. Salman Khan features in a cameo in Judwaa 2.
