Mumbai: Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD), which lost out a few screens to Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 (YPD 2), has continued to rock the viewers in the second week. Undeterred by the new Hindi release, the Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer has raked in a decent amount of money at the Indian Box Office on its second Friday. It is giving a tough feat to the new release at the ticket counters in the domestic market.
Trade analysts had predicted that Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, which is one of the most-hyped and highly-awaited movies of 2013, would slow down the collection of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. But to their surprise, the latter has received very good response on its eighth day. The Karan Johar's latest production had a tough time in North India due to the Deols hold in circuits like Delhi, UP and Punjab, but the film had very good occupancy in other parts of the country.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has minted Rs 7 crores nett at the domestic Box Office on its second Friday, taking its eight-day collection to Rs 114.61 crores nett. Its second Friday numbers are close the first Friday collection of Ranbir Kapoor's previous release Barfi, which had raked in Rs 8.56 crores on its opening day. Trade experts feel that it is a record business for the movie.
However, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, which is also as entertaining as its prequel, has garnered mixed reviews from film critics, who have given average ratings for the movie. Due to these reviews, some viewers might take Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani as their first choice in this weekend too. If it happens, there is no doubt that the Ranbir and Deepika starrer will once again top the collection chart in the second week.
