Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is releasing tomorrow and Deols are back again with laughter medicine for the audiences in theater this Friday. YPD is a box office run away hit and YPD 2 is expected to cross that mark in the first week itself. YPD 2 faced quite a difficulty collecting enough screen space this week as many theater owners have kept as much as screen possible for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani for second week running. YJHD has just stormed box office in the 1st week and is expected again to well in the 2nd week. So, what's the advance booking report of YPD 2 then?
YPD 2 has just managed to get just enough screen space at box office. It should be estimated around 1800 screens as per early information received. Film is getting wide release in single screens, but many screens in multiplexes will be occupied by YJHD this coming week also.
YPD 2 has registered a good advance booking as expected in Northern Belt, despite advance booking in majority starting today only. From samples received, already around 27% tickets are sold out in Delhi City. In Gurgaon around 30% tickets are sold out. In Mumbai advance booking of tickets is around 20% which is actually not bad. Sunny Deol films have never depended on advance booking report as his movies has taken bumper start in single screen. With pre-release buzz of YPD 2 is good, one can expect same tomorrow.
From the advance booking report, one can expect at least an occupancy of around 40% for tomorrow. If single screen starts well occupancy will go higher. Plus if movie feedback is good, then a good weekend is on cards for YPD 2. Hope less screen release of YPD 2 doesn't affect much in its box office lifetime verdict. With such screen release a big opening of 13-15 crore nett looks unrealistic for tomorrow. A realistic figure will be around 8-10 to start of and then show growth through Saturday and Sunday. But there goes the saying, "Never say never, anything can happen!"
