After earning an impressive Rs 12.42 crore at the ticket windows on Friday, Alia Bhatt-Arjun Kapoor-starrer

2 States

continued to earn moolah at the box office through the first weekend of its release.

Abhishek Varman's directorial debut

2 States

collected Rs 12.42 crore on Friday, a figure that more or less remained the same on day two (Rs 12.13 crore).


The collections further picked up on Sunday to Rs 13, 51 crore, making a total of Rs 38.06 crore over the first weekend.

Mixed reviews notwithstanding, there was a lot of buzz around the movie based on a semi-autobiographical novel by Chetan Bhagat by the same name. Bhagat's track record at the BO also had to do something with the success of the film – screen adaptations of his earlier books Kai Po Che and 3 Idiots (a "loose" adaptation of Five Point Someone) went on to mint money.

With the first day collection, 2 States has become the third biggest Bollywood opener this year after Salman Khan's

Jai Ho

(Rs 17 crore) and Ranveer Singh-Priyanka Chopra-Arjun Kapoor-starrer


(Rs 16.12 crore).
