Student of the Year 2, directed by Punit Malhotra, released last week and opened to not so great reviews from the critics. While the teen romantic drama fared well on day 1 as it collected Rs 12.06 crore, SOTY 2 later witnessed a sharp dip in its collections and failed to pack a solid punch over the opening weekend at the domestic box office. While the film starring Tiger Shroff in the lead along with newbies Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria has finally crossed the Rs 50 crore mark after being in theatres for six days, going forward it will have a tough time to maintain itself on weekdays at the ticket windows.

Talking about the SOTY 2's updated figures, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the microblogging site Twitter a while back and wrote, "#StudentOfTheYear2 is stable on weekdays [plexes continue to add to the total], but the overall total is underwhelming... Fri 12.06 cr, Sat 14.02 cr, Sun 12.75 cr, Mon 5.52 cr, Tue 5.02 cr, Wed 4.51 cr. Total: ₹ 53.88 cr. India biz. #SOTY2."
While Student of the Year 2 seems to be going steady at the moment, things will heat up at the box office from tomorrow onwards as two new films are set to arrive in cinema halls. From Bollywood, Ajay Devgn's rom-com De De Pyaar De will give stiff competition to Tiger starrer whereas, from Hollywood, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum starring Keanu Reeves will be the one posing threat to SOTY 2 at the cinema halls.

Produced by Dharma Productions, SOTY 2 marks the debut of Ananya and Tara and though their debut film hasn't packed a solid punch at the ticket windows, both of them have managed to make a mark with their acting skills which is quite impressive, no?
