Fukrey received well up North, even as YJHD goes strong at the BO

Fukrey

MUMBAI: The Excel Entertainment production Fukrey had its best opening weekend in Delhi and Punjab as there is a genuine connect with the audience up North, where it collected a third (Rs 2.60 crore in Delhi; Rs 70 lakh in Punjab) of its total weekend collections of Rs 9.5 crore across India.

Ankur Arora Murder Case which is based on true events, featuring Kay Kay Menon, Tisca Chopra, Paoli Dam and Arjun Mathur hasn‘t done much to rave the audiences and this reflects in its poor opening weekend collection of about a crore.

Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is only the third Sunny Sound Production after Indian (2001) and 23rd March 1931: Shaheed (2002). The Deol clan‘s second outing in the YPD franchise has been below average at the end of its first week. The film has managed to collect Rs 27.55 crore for it opening week; the indications for the second weekend do not seem encouraging.

Ayan Mukherjee‘s second directorial venture Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani starring the Kapoor scion and Deepika Padukone has followed up on its bumper first week with strong second week figures. The film collected Rs 49.3 crore in its second week taking its two week total to Rs 153.3 crore and adding a further Rs 13 core for the third weekend taking its 17 day tally to Rs 166.3 crore. Ranbir Kapoor has certainly established himself as a bankable star with back to back Rs 100 crore plus box office collections with last year‘s Barfi! and YJHDthis year.

Aashiqui 2 starring Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor has gone on to add Rs 40 lakh for its seventh week to take its seven week tally to Rs 78.3 crore. This film has certainly exceeded everyone‘s expectations and the music has certainly connected well with the youth.

The debut directorial venture of Atul Sabharwal under the YRF banner and Arjun Kapoor starrer Aurangzeb has collected Rs 20 lakh in its fourth week taking its four week tally to Rs 24.25 crore at the box office.
