Mumbai: Actors Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu-starrer Judwaa 2 has crossed the Rs 200 crore mark in 16 days, its makers said.

The action-comedy, backed by Fox Star Studios and Sajid Nadiadwala, minted Rs 2.65 crore on Saturday, taking its net box office collection to Rs 130.21 crore in India.

The total worldwide gross box office collection of the film now stands at Rs 203.33 crore, read a statement issued on behalf of the makers.

Released on 29 September, the David Dhawan directorial is a reboot of the 1997 Salman Khan-starrer Judwaa. Varun has brought back to celluloid the iconic characters Prem and Raja played by Salman in Judwaa. Jacqueline and Taapsee slipped into the shoes of actresses Karisma Kapoor and Rambha respectively.

According to makers, Judwaa 2 has become the third Bollywood film in 2017 to cross the Rs 200 crore mark worldwide after Shah Rukh Khan's Raees and Akshay Kumar-starrer Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
