SOTY 2 has received an unfavourable response 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.
