Diljit Dosanjh's Punjabi film "Sardaarji 2" has shattered all previous records set by Punjabi films. "Sardaarji 2," which is an entertaining drama, has recorded the biggest opening day box office collection for Punjabi film.

"Sardaarji 2" has shattered the records of its first instalment "Sardaarji" to become the biggest opener. Diljit-starrer "Sardaarji 2" minted Rs. 2.05 crore on its first day from East Punjab, which is better than "Sardaarji" Rs. 2.02 crore.

The film, which was released in approximately 350 screens in India, opened to packed houses at several theatres across the country. The film opened to phenomenal response in East Punjab as well as other circuits across India. The opening day box office collection of "Sardaarji 2" from across India would stand at Rs. 2.75 crore, which is again higher than last year's "Sardaarji" Rs. 2.49 crore.

Here is the opening day box office collection of top Punjabi films from East Punjab circuits, as provided by Box Office India.

Sardaarji - Rs. 2.02 crore

Ambarsariya - Rs. 1.58 crore

Jatt & Juliet 2 - Rs. 1.26 crore

Punjabi film "Sardaarji 2" has recorded the highest occupancy in East Punjab and Delhi this year until now. The occupancy of Diljit-starrer was much better than big Bollywood films like "Housefull 3," "Fan" or "Airlift."

The Punjabi film, directed by Rohit Jugraj, opened to packed houses in India, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Friday. "Much-awaited Punjabi film #SardaarJi2 starts with a bang... Opens to packed houses... Screen count: India 350 screens, Overseas 200 screens," Adarsh tweeted.

The entertaining drama, which was released on June 24, features Diljit in a double role, while Sonam Bajwa and Monica Gill are the female lead actresses. Unlike its first instalment "Sardaarji," the Diljit-starrer is not fantasy drama.
