Taran Adarsh, considered the expert on box-office figures, tweeted that a compilation list with all the data is currently underway.

The advance booking response has been tremendous with websites like BookMyShow claiming that their site crashed a couple of times when they opened it for single-screen and multiplex booking. They also said they have already sold a million tickets for the sequel.

A report in Deadline Hollywood puts the collection estimate at over $2.5 million. The movie is releasing on 330 screens in the United States and the opening day’s collections in the US were reported at $7.2 million.
