Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria's new film Student Of The Year 2 is adding more and more crores to its box office performance with each passing day. In five days in the theatres, the Punit Malhotra-directed film has raked in Rs 49.37 crore, just a shade under Rs 50 crore. About the film's almost-50 crore performance, trade analyst Taran Adarsh said that its "surprising" that Student Of The Year 2 hasn't managed to make Rs 50 crore yet: "Student Of The Year 2 shows ordinary trending... Didn't decline much on Tue [vis-a-vis Mon], but what's surprising is that it hasn't crossed Rs 50 cr yet, even after 5 days... Fri 12.06 cr, Sat 14.02 cr, Sun 12.75 cr, Mon 5.52 cr, Tue 5.02 cr. Total: Rs 49.37 cr. India biz."

As per Mr Adarsh's previous report, Student Of The Year 2 had witnessed a downward graph as it entered the week from the weekend. "Student Of The Year 2 declines 54.23% on Mon [vis-a-vis Fri]... Slows at plexes of Mumbai, Delhi, NCR [where it was performing best]," he had written.
In its three-day weekend, Student Of The year 2 made over Rs 38 crore, which turned out to be Tiger Shroff's third highest opening weekend figure.
#StudentOfTheYear2 has a decent weekend, but when compared to Tiger Shroff's earlier releases [data follows], the numbers should've been much higher than #Baaghi  at least... #SOTY2 has an important task ahead: It needs to maintain the pace on weekdays. #StudentOfTheYear2 saw limited growth on Day 2, while the sixth phase of polling [cinemas were shut till evening] + #IPL2019Final [evening onwards] affected its biz on Day 3...

Apart from the storyline of a college love triangle, Student Of The Year 2 has several points of interest for cine-goers - it marks the Bollywood debuts of Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday. Student Of The Year alumna Alia Bhatt also features in a special appearance in a song.
