'Jolly LLB 2': Akshay Kumar gets his first Rs 100 crore movie of 2017
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is rolling high on the success of his last release 'Jolly LLB 2' which has entered the coveted Rs 100 crore club. The movie which is in the second week of release has made a collection of Rs 100.37 cr so far.
Interestingly, 'Jolly LLB 2' is Akshay's first release of the year. However, it is Akki's fourth consecutive movie to enter the Rs 100 crore club.
In 2015, Akshay's all three releases - 'Airlift', 'Housefull 3' and 'Rustom' had been a part of the honourable squad.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh took it to micro-blogging site Twitter to share the box office collection of 'Jolly LLB 2'.
He wrote, "#JollyLLB2 crosses ₹ 100 cr on Day 12... [Week 2] Fri 4.14 cr, Sat 6.35 cr, Sun 7.24 cr, Mon 2.48 cr, Tue 2.45 cr. Total: ₹ 100.37 cr."

It is indeed a big achievement for the 'Jolly LLB 2' given that the box office had earlier seen movies like 'Raees' and 'Kaabil', which have done phenomenal business at the box office.
A satirical courtroom drama, 'Jolly LLB 2' happens to be the sequel of Arshad Warsi's 2013 release 'Jolly LLB'.
Buoyed by the success of the 'Jolly LLB 2', the makers have even announced the another movie of the franchise.
"Yes definitely there will be "Jolly LLB 3". We are in the second week of release. So, we are yet to sit down and work (on the third part). We have two-three ideas. Let's see what we pick up," producer Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios was quoted as saying.
Given the critical acclaim both the movies have won, it will be interesting to see what the makers have in store for 'Jolly LLB 3'.
