YJHD set to break records at the BO, opens with Rs 61.25 crore

MUMBAI: Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD) has set the cash registers ringing at the box office with a record-breaking opening day as well as the opening weekend collections. The Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer is on its way to join the illustrious Rs 100 crore club.


The youthful entertainer is certainly the biggest opener for 2013 thus far by a mile. The film released in over 3,000 screens in the country with an earth-shattering response and its occupancy ranging between 95 per cent and 100 per cent in both single screens and multiplexes on Friday. With its positive reviews and good word of mouth, the movie showed a very good jump in its business on Saturday and Sunday and has been received well by the critics and audiences alike.


The mammoth sized promotional events, guest appearances and performances on TV shows, brand associations and the works have done exceedingly well for it.


Kapoor has created a solid fan following among the youth and second time writer-director, Ayan Mukerji, helped keep his fans happy.


An extensive solo release backed by enhanced admission rates, has certainly accelerated the film‘s collection to rake in a handsome Rs 61.25 crore. The practice of reducing admission rates from Monday has been applied only at a select few outlets; this coupled with steady Monday, the film looks set to touch the 100 crore mark in real quick time.

Chhota Bheem And The Throne Of Bali in its fourth week has added Rs 40 lakh to take its four week total to Rs 4.65 crore.


Aashiqui 2 is going rock steady. The film collected Rs 5.5 crore in its fifth week thus taking its five week total to Rs 76.65 crore, certainly proving to be the sleeper hit of the year.
