#StudentOfTheYear2 puts up a fairly good total on Day 1... Biz slowed down towards evening shows... Sat and Sun crucial... Substantial growth - especially at plexes - is essential for a healthy total... Fri Rs 12.06 cr. India biz. #SOTY2 is Tiger's second highest opener *so far*.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) May 11, 2019
