So far, the film has collected Rs 38.83 crore at the box office.

The film's business was hit majorly in Punjab too on Sunday. SOTY 2 collected Rs 84 lakh in the Punjab circuit from Rs 1.25 crore on Saturday, reported boxofficeindia.com
Helmed by Punit Malhotra, SOTY 2 is the sequel to 2012 release Student of the Year. SOTY 2 revolves around the complicated lives of the students of the prestigious Saint Teresa's College. The film features Tiger Shroff and debutantes Ananaya Pandey and Tara Sutaria in the lead roles.
SOTY 2 has received unfavourable responses from movie critics, as well as moviegoers. Therefore it is likely that the film's collection will dip further in its weekday collections. Moreover, with the release of Bollywood romantic comedy De De Pyaar De and Hollywood action film John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum next Friday, Karan Johar's SOTY 2 has one week to recover its cost, added Taran Adarsh.
Besides, SOTY 2 is currently facing a stiff competition from Marvel Studio's Avengers: Endgame. Russo Brothers' superhero flick minted Rs 13.75 crore in its third weekend at the box office. Overall, Endgame has collected Rs 348.50 crore in the Indian market.
