Subhash Ghai's ambitious fare Yuvvraaj started well in the morning shows. The shows in parts of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and NCR were almost packed, but the noon shows showed a decline as the film performed in the 40% - 60% range. The film picked up during the weekend, but it remains to be seen where it tilts during the coming days. Yuvvraaj is crucial for both, Ghai and Salman Khan, who've been facing rough weather professionally.
