The most amazing thing about this movie is that it achieved all these feats without any major holiday, and in IPL season. Even top actors and makers never dared to release their movies during IPL. Though BB2 has lost screens to new Hindi releases, it will cross 500 crores nett in Hindi regions in next couple of weeks.
