Raanjhanaa collects Rs 18.75 crore for the weekend, YJHD still going strong at Rs 172.95 crore

MUMBAI: Raanjhanaa, starring Dhanush, Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol which opened with weak collections, did well to gather momentum over the weekend. However, a disappointing second half plot being a major drawback, generating bad word of mouth, the film is not expected to carry on the momentum it generated over the weekend. Also, with its hero‘s mass appeal riding on the ‘Kolaveri Di‘ fame, the film was expected to do well in single screen theatres but that has not happened. The film has gone on to end its opening weekend with Rs 18.75 crore.

Enemmy, Mithun Chakraborty‘s home production starring Mithun, Mahakshay, Suniel Shetty, Kay Kay Menon and Johnny Lever is doing poor business, barely collecting about a crore for its opening weekend.

Shortcut Romeo the remake of Susi Ganeshan‘s own Tamil film Thiruttu Payale, starring Neil Nitin Mukesh, Ameesha Patel and Puja Gupta is a disaster, finding no takers.


Fukrey, a north-centric youth comedy, has sustained reasonably well in its first week with major boost coming from North. The film has collected Rs 17.5 crore in first seven days, with as much as 50 per cent coming from Delhi/NCR/Punjab. The film is reported to have done very well in its second weekend too, assuring the film will emerge a moderate earner.

Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 from the Deol clan has dropped to less than 10 per cent of its first week figures collecting Rs 2.55 crore in its second week and taking its two week total to Rs 30.1 crore.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani continues to be strong in its third week. The film has collected Rs 19.65 crore in third week to take its three week total to Rs 172.95 crore. This is certainly Ranbir Kapoor‘s biggest hit so far in a career spanning just six years from his debut withSaawariya (2007) till his last release in 2012 with Barfi! The Kapoor scion has certainly come off age in a big way.

Aashiqui 2, the Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer has added Rs 20 lakh in its eighth week, taking its eight week tally to Rs 78.5 crore. This film has certainly exceeded everyone‘s expectations. The music of the movie has been much appreciated by audiences across the country.
