Fri 12.06 cr, Sat 14.02 cr, Sun 12.75 cr, Mon 5.52 cr, Tue 5.02 cr. Total: ₹ 49.37 cr. India biz. #SOTY2- taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) May 15, 2019
Meanwhile, despite a lukewarm response, Student of the Year 2 has made it to the top five biggest Bollywood openers of 2019. The film is still behind Varun Dhawan's Kalank (Rs 21.60 crore), Akshay Kumar's Kesari (Rs 21.06 crore), Ranveer Singh's Gully Boy (Rs 19.40 crore), and Ajay Devgn's Total Dhamaal (Rs 16.50 crore).
Student of the Year 2 narrates the story of a college student who tries to overcome his personal challenges and faces his competitors to win the student of the year trophy. SOTY 2 is a sequel to the 2012's film, Student of the Year, which launched the careers of Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. Moreover, SOTY 2 marks the debut of Chunky Panday's daughter Ananya Panday. The film has been produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta under the banner of Dharma Productions and distributed by Fox Star Studios.
