Director Pooja Bhatt is on cloud eleven after the success of Sunny Leone starrer Jism 2. The director is glad that film has broken records of other blockbusters from the Bhatt stable - Murder 2 and Jannat 2.

'Outstanding business'

A film which was made in 7 crores doing business of 21 crores, that too in Ramzan and without any major stars is outstanding to say the least.

'Bigger hit than Murder 2 and Jannat 2'
Jism 2 has broken sale records of even Murder 2 and Jannat 2 in Punjab, UP and Delhi with regards to first weekend sales. And Murder 2 and Jannat 2 were two of the biggest hits to have come out of the Bhatt stable! Champagne popping at my end!

'What 100 crore club? We Bhatts have our own club'
With regard to entering the 100 crore club, I don't make movies for 40-60 crores plus that give me a turnover of 100 crores. I make films for 7 crores plus that do a turnover of between 25-50 crores. They can keep their club. We Bhatts rule our own!

BO Report
"Started with a bang on Thursday [previews; Raksha Bandhan holiday] and Friday, but slipped considerably on Saturday itself. Though most films witness a decline in business on Saturday, the fall in this case was alarming. The film, however, was better on Sunday, but lower than Friday, which, again, comes as a surprise, since most films fare the best on Sundays,"  trade expert Taran Adarsh wrote for Bollywood Hungama.

"Yet, thanks to the total accumulated on Thursday + Friday, the overall figure looks quite good. Collected approx Rs. 20 cr to Rs. 21 cr nett in its opening weekend, inclusive of Thursday previews," added Adarsh.

Sunny Leone's Jism 2 rakes in moolah
Sunny Leone's Bollywood debut Jism 2 has succeeded to woo the box office despite a weak script and slow pace. It's Leone magic all the way, as the film made on a budget of Rs. 6-7 crore, has collected Rs. 21 crore nett on its opening weekend. FULL STORY
