Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has seems to registered first significant drop on box office after 5 outstanding days. But the drop is normal considering it had huge first 5 days at box office and hardly there was drop in Tuesday collection compared to Monday. Even with this drop still collection will come out huge for sixth day.
YJHD has registered an occupancy of around 55% in Delhi City on Wednesday (Tuesday was 60-65%) for Morning and Noon shows. IT has registered an occupancy of around 45-50% in Gurgaon on Wednesday (Tuesday was around 60%) for Morning and Noon shows. Occupancy on Wednesday Morning and Noons shows in Mumbai is around 27% (Tuesday was around 35-40%). So, when compared to Tuesday there is drop, but still the occupancy is very good considering wide release and 6th day at box office. When sample reports are considered for whole India then drop on Wednesday is around 20% for Morning and Noon shows till last report filled in.
YJHD can still collect well in the Evening and Night shows and do comparable business on Wednesday. But even with that gut feeling is that YJHD will register at least a drop of 10-15% on Wednesday which is quite natural after so many days. For the first time it looks like YJHD might collect less than 10 crore nett. But still it is too early to make statement and have to see the progress of Evening and Night shows. YJHD has collected around 86-87 crore nett in 5 days and early trend suggest that it should cross 95-96 crore nett mark by Wednesday itself. That means it should cross 100 crore nett in the first week itself and who would have thought of such outstanding collections from the film before release. On the way to Monstrous Hit!
