After getting off to an average start on its first day, Student of the Year 2 performed well on Saturday as it witnessed a spike in its collections on day 2. However, Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria starrer got affected by the Lok Sabha elections and IPL finals on Sunday as it only managed to mint only Rs 12.75 crore on day 3. Directed by Punit Malhotra, the teen romantic drama released on May 10 and garnered mostly not so great reviews from the critics. Despite the lukewarm response and Avengers: Endgame mania, SOTY 2 still took a good opening and has now ended the first weekend on a fairly decent note. Student of the Year 2 Box Office Collection Day 2: Tiger Shroff and Ananya Panday’s Film Sees Slight Growth, Earns Rs 26.08 Crore

Announcing the updated figures, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the microblogging site Twitter a while back and wrote, "#StudentOfTheYear2 has a decent weekend, but when compared to Tiger Shroff’s earlier releases [data follows], the numbers should’ve been higher than #Baaghi [2016] at least... #SOTY2 has an important task ahead: It needs to maintain the pace on weekdays."

He then tweeted, "#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... Fri 12.06 cr, Sat 14.02 cr, Sun 12.75 cr. Total: ₹ 38.83 cr. India biz. #SOTY2."

While SOTY 2 has turned out to be Tiger's second biggest opening weekend earner, it may find it to stay afloat at the box office from Friday onwards as two new films are set to arrive in cinema halls. From Bollywood, Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh starrer De De Pyaar De will release on May 17 whereas the other film that may give competition to SOTY 2 is Hollywood releasE John Wick: Chapter 3Student of the Year 2 Box Office Collection Day 1: Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria Starrer Is Off to a Slow Start, Earns Rs 12.06 Crore

Talking about the same, Adarsh further tweeted, "Tiger Shroff versus Tiger Shroff... Top 3 *opening weekend* biz...2016: #Baaghi ₹ 38.58 cr, 2018: #Baaghi2 ₹ 73.10 cr, 2019: #SOTY2 ₹ 38.83 cr. #SOTY2 faces two major films on Fri - #DeDePyaarDe and #JohnWick: Chapter 3... Biz on weekdays is extremely crucial. India biz." So now let's wait and see how Student of the Year 2 fares well in the coming days.
