The Suriya-starrer has already been declared a superhit in India, following a good response from film buffs. It has grossed more than ₹30 crore in India in the first ten days.

The Telugu dubbed version of "Singam 2" ("Singam - Yamudu") grossed about ₹14 crore and the share is ₹11.5 crore - 11.75 crore.
The Hindi dubbed version of the film is slated to get released on 19 July. Dhanush's "Mariyaan" ("Maryan") is also scheduled to hit the theatres on the same day. The release of "Mariyaan" might hamper "Singam 2" collections.
