Satyemeva Jayate opened in theatres on August 15, clashing with Gold. The movie did a phenomenal business on its opening day earning Rs 20.52 crore. With those numbers, Satyemeva Jayate became John’s highest opener ever, beating films like Race 2 and Force 2. It also became the first movie with an A certificate to earn that number. Well, come the second day, the movie has seen a massive dip.
On the second day of its run, Satyameva Jayate was only able to rake in Rs 7.92 crore. The two-day grand total stands at Rs 28.44 crore as of now. But the makers should not worry, as the second day was a weekday as the movie released on a Wednesday. An entire weekend lies ahead of Satyameva Jayate and certainly a good opportunity to earn more.
John is having quite a great year. His first release of the year, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran was a hit upon its release. Now, within months, his second film also holds a very strong possibility to be declared a hit. At least, commercially. Its critical standing is a different topic altogether.
