Drishyam 2 Advance Box Office Report
According to Box Office India, "Drishyam 2 has fair advances as it's probably looking to collect around 4.25-4.50 crore nett in total with the national chain advance for the first day having a shot at being among the top three for original content this year. The sales here have been boosted pre advance sales as tickets were available on certain days before the actual advance opened and this will give the film a 10-12% boost in terms of advance sales at the national chains."
"The movement since advance opened on Friday has been on the slower side driven by Maharashtra and Gujarat which have better advances," BOI added. ALSO READ: Drishyam 2: When and Where to watch Ajay Devgn's crime-thriller, Review, Box Office, Book Ticket Online
