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.

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 Gunday (Rs 16.12 crore).
