Mumbai: Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
(YJHD) once again remained a first choice for many movie
buffs across India in the fourth week, and this made the film keep
the cash registers ringing at the domestic Box
Office. Although several big movies have hit the screens in the
last three weeks, the Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika
Padukone starrer romantic entertainer has made to third place
in the desi collection collection.
Undeterred by new release Raanjhanaa and one-week old
Fukrey, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani continued its
dream run at the domestic business centres on its fourth Friday.
The movie showed 70% growth on Saturday and Sunday. In its fourth
week, the film has collected approximately Rs 9.90 crores nett at
the Indian Box Office, taking its 28-day domestic total to Rs
186.99 crores nett. Its breakup is Rs 1.40 cr on Fri, Rs 2.10 cr on
Sat, Rs 2.60 cr on Sun, Rs 97.8 lakhs on Mon, Rs 98.6 lakhs on Tue,
Rs 93.5 lakhs on Wed and Thu 91 lacs.
The Karan Johar and Ayan Mukerji's second combo movie has become
the highest grosser of 2013 and third all time highest grosser in
Indian cinema. Now, the question is that whether Yeh Jawaani
Hai Deewani would smash the records of 3 Idiots (Rs
202 crores) and Ek The Tiger (Rs 199 crores), which are
holding first and second positions, respectively, in the list of
all-time highest grosser Hindi movies.
In India, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has collected Rs
107.61 crores in the first week, Rs 47.67 crores in the second
week, Rs 21.81 crores in the third week and Rs 9.90 crores in the
fourth week. When looked at the graph of the downfall in its
business, the movie has showed 55% to 60% dip in each week. Even if
it moves at this ratio, the film would be able to score another Rs
8 crores to Rs 8.50 crores in the next four weeks. So it may not be
able to beat the previous records.
