Occupancy Report of YPD 2 -
Delhi - 38% (Morning-Noon shows) and 65-70% (Evening shows).
Gurgaon - 50% (Morning-Noon shows) and 80%+ (Evening shows).
Mumbai - 20-25% (Morning-Noon shows) and 45-50% (Evening shows).
Occupancy of YPD 2 is decent to good for the opening day. But the main problem with YPD 2 is that it has got very less screen than expected earlier. YPD 2 has got just around 1600+ screens, because of two weeks tie up of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani with many single screen theaters, YPD 2 struggled to get sufficient screens. Moreover because of good showing of YJHD again many theaters refrained from taking YPD 2 in their theaters. With such limited screening, a big figure for YPD 2 is unrealistic at the moment. Film will hope to collect at least around 8+ crore for start with available screens. After that it will hope to show jump on Saturday and Sunday to even touch or cross 10 crore nett mark. Still these are early days and if YPD 2 shows huge occupancy in Night shows then 10 crore nett is still achievable. Let's wait and watch!
