Despite a lukewarm response in terms of its advance booking, Ram Setu sprung a major surprise at the box office on day 1, taking full advantage of the big Diwali holiday, en route to a solid start of ₹15.25 crore nett. Well, beginning well is only a small battle won and all eyes within the trade and the film industry were on the Ram Setu box office collection day 2. The good news is that the the Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha starrer has not had more than a marginal drop of 25-30% across the country, which is more than acceptable for a normal weekday, of course, no doubt buoyed by the partial Bhai Dooj holiday.
Ram Setu box office collection day 2 again driven by mass belts
As per early entertainment news estimates in the trade and our tracking of the box office, it looks like Ram Setu has collected ₹11.40 crore nett on day 2, which is a pretty good hold. In fact, in some territories like UP and Gujarat, the Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha starrer saw no drop at all while in most other mass pockets, the drop was no more than 10%. The bigger A centres, especially their high-end multiplexes saw bigger drops, but the mass belts more than compensated for them. The 2-day Ram Setu box office collection stands at around ₹26.65 crore nett.

Ram Setu takes second best opening for Bollywood in 2022
The Ram Setu box office collection day 1 pegged it as the second best opener of 2022, way below Brahmastra, which had collected ₹36 crore nett, but just ahead of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which had collected ₹14.11 crore nett. With a long Diwali weekend in the offing, the Abhishek Sharma directorial can be expected to put a number that should set it on the path to a ‘clean hit’ verdict.
