Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has done record breaking business in the first weekend with a figure of 62+ crore nett. After this stupendous start to box office there bound to be significant drop on Monday. As maintaining such collections is weekdays is just unrealistic. But what is interesting is that we have received contrasting reports from two of the biggest cities of India, that is Mumbai and Delhi which do large chunk of business and their trend extremely matters for all in trade.
YJHD has again opened to outstanding occupancies in Delhi and also in nearby Gurgaon. YJHD is registering an occuapancy of 60-65%+ in Delhi and Gurgaon for Morning and Noon shows. That means just a drop of around 35% from Sunday. Whereas in Mumbai there is significant drop on Monday. In Mumbai YJHD is registering an occupancy of around 35% on average. That means a drop of around 55%+ when compared to Sunday.
Overall occupancy of India from selected cinemas from limited centers is around 45% which is pretty good for YJHD on working day. Above calculations are done on the sample data received from the multiplexes. Single screen report is still to be received. One should note that even Single Screen performed exceptionally well on Sunday and there is bound to be drop in that also.
Despite significant drop in Mumbai, excellent business in Delhi, Gurgaon and many other place will ensure that YJHD is heading for another big day at box office.
