After almost three decades of Khans ruling the box office, finally a young lad from the Kapoor Khandan has emerged as a tough competitor to the Khan trio. Yes, I’m referring to none other than the super talented Ranbir Kapoor who has upturned the Indian Box Office with his latest blockbuster Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.
Produced by Karan Johar and Directed by Ayan Mukherjee, the Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone starrer film has broken all records in a short time. YJHD is the first Non-Khan Starrer film to be declared a blockbuster in the very first week of its release. It came second to Salman Khan’s Dabangg 2’s first day box office collection only by a tad bit.
YJHD have broken all records of the Indian box office. It made a huge box office collection even in its second weekend, thus ranking only second to 3 Idiots as the highest second weekend grosser. It was predicted that YJHD will see a fall in its income with Yamla Pagla Deewana 2’s release in its second weekend. But YJHD hardly missed a beat in its performance. The film rocked the theaters on its 8th day as well, especially in the Metros and some parts of Southern Circuit of India.on its second Friday, it made Rs7 crores, on Saturday, Rs10.25crores and Rs11.75crores on Sunday. By the end of the second weekend, YJHD had done a business of Rs 29 crores only in the domestic market, shooting its 10 days box office collection to a whopping Rs136.61crores.
Cheers to the Jeh Jawani Hai Deewani for reaching the 100crore mark merely in 7days and go collect Rs150crores in just 9 days from its worldwide box office collection. In its second weekend, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has collected Rs 29 crores nett at the Indian Box Office, taking its 10-day domestic total to Rs 136.61 crores nett. Its breakup is Rs 7 crores on Fri, Rs 10.25 crores on Sat and Rs 11.75 crores on Sun.
YJHD enchanted the overseas audience as well. I’ts estimated to have earned Rs 35crores globally. The NRIs and other lovers of Bollywood magic have made the film a hit worldwide as well. Till date, YJHD has earned a net collection of Rs172crores including global and domestic market. While it acheaved this feat, it also ranks 3rd from Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg in terms of making fastest 150 crores worldwide.
It’s quite safe to say that collecting a 200crore is a piece of cake for the Ranbir-Deepika starrer film. We just have to wait and watch to see what other records this film is out to break!
