John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha-starrer Force 2 started on a low note with film witnessing around 15-20% occupancy in theatres on the first day. The film was released on 1800 screens. A sequel to 2011 Force, the film is expected to collect Rs 5 crore on the first day. Force 2 has got positive reviews from the audience. The positive word of mouth can help the film get a decent weekend collection. Another thing that can benefit the film is its patriotism angle.

 

Both John and Sonakshi are doing some high-octane action sequences. But will demonetisation have an impact on film’s box office collection? When asked if they were prepared to incur losses due to the entire issue of demonetisation, John said — without naming Rock On 2 — that Force 2 is more massy and will appeal to a larger audience. He feels after struggling with the currency crunch, Force 2 will give the audience a break and help them de-stress, because the film just slips through two-and-a-half hours due to its pace and amazing action.

Distributor Akshaye Rathi also seems to be hopeful. “The #DeMonetisation impact on movies is a failed theory suddenly! Watch the collections of #Force2 & you’ll know what I mean!,” Akshaye Rathi shared on Twitter.

He also wrote,” Between last week & now, people haven’t got a lot of money all of a sudden! Good content works! Bad content doesn’t! Period! #Force2.”
