According to BoxOfficeIndia.com, SOTY2 managed to add Rs13.50 crore on Saturday and Rs12.25 crore approx on Sunday to its opening day collection. The film did see a fall in collection on Sunday owing to ongoing elections in Delhi and UP regions. 

However, this still makes for a below average weekend for Punit Malhotra's film. The sequel to the 2012 film, Student Of The Year, received mixed reviews by critics and fans alike.
