Jersey VS KGF Chapter 2: Sunday definitely plays a crucial role in the box office collection of any film and surely it did in the case of KGF 2 and Jersey. Shahid Kapoor starrer which was released on Friday has been facing a tough fight from Yash's film that hit the screens on April 14. On Saturday as well, the regional film remained in the limelight for its collections. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the figures of the Hindi belt on Twitter and wrote, "#KGF2 continues to rule hearts and #BO...Will score TRIPLE CENTURY today [second Sun; Day 11] First film to hit ₹ 300 cr since #War  10th film to swim past ₹ 300 cr mark [Week 2] Fri 11.56 cr, Sat 18.25 cr. Total: ₹ 298.44 cr. #India biz." This left fans all excited about the Sunday box office figures of not just Prashanth Neel's directorial but also for Jersey also featuring Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapoor.
According to a report in BoxOfficeIndia, "Jersey was flat on Sunday as it picked up 5-5.25 crore nett for a weekend of nearly 14 crore nett. The film has not moved much in mass areas from day one and it was again similar on Sunday which meant no growth for the film. The film managed to grow 45% on Saturday thanks to good growth in metros so that gives some hope that maybe it can do something but with Sunday being flat its is now pretty much impossible for Monday to hold anywhere close to Friday levels."
Meanwhile, sharing the Sunday collections of the film, Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#RockyBhai is #RocKING on [second] Sun... #KGF2 hits it out of the stadium yet again... *Weekend 2* crosses ₹ 50 cr mark, FANTASTIC... NOW, 6TH HIGHEST GROSSING *HINDI* FILM... [Week 2] Fri 11.56 cr, Sat 18.25 cr, Sun 22.68 cr. Total: ₹ 321.12 cr. #India biz. #Hindi."
