Ayan Mukherji directed Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani on its 1st Wednesday collected a superb sum of 11 crores, as per early estimates. The film’s total income now rests at 98.11 crores, shying away from the 100 crore mark by 2 crores which the film will cross by first half today!

But the Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer could have thrashed Salman Khan’s record of the speediest 100 crores, it eventually did not. Salman’s 2012 Diwali release Ek Tha Tiger and December release Dabangg 2 both had recorded the fastest 100 crore reach in Bollywood.

However, to its credit, the film has had a stupendous performance at the box office with no public holiday to aide it. As popular Bollywood celeb Milap Zaveri tweeted, “The most noteworthy achievement of #yehjawaanihaideewani is that it hasn’t had a single extra public holiday to boost its collections!”

YJHD will definitely surpass the 100 crore mark by today, and then eye for greater success on the economic plains for itself. Since the film so closely competed with Dabangg 2, one can actually expect it to eye the Salman starrer’s total collections as a benchmark for its own. Though highly doubtful, but we’ll have to wait and watch whether YJHD reached the 200 crore mark as well.

  1. Salman is no 1—hit wise since few years.He is 48 years old and more than 20 years working in Bollywood whereas Ranbir is only 30 years old and about 6-7 years in Bollywood.Do not compare them.On the other hand if —Mehboob Khan’s Mother India,Raj Kapoor’s Bobby.K.Asif’s Mughal E Azam,V.Shantaram’s Do Ankhen Bara Haath then how come Salman’s Ek tha Tiger,it is a YRF film and YJHD is a Dharma Production and do not forget the roles of the costars and the whole unit.

  2. yeh bhi toh dekho ki ranbir is only 30 years old only 6 years old in the film industry yet he has crushed each an every record you should also note that ek tha tiger released on 15 august which means a holiday in addition to that it had eid weekend(5 holidays) and dabbang 2 also released on christmas. But yeh jawani hai deewani is a non holiday realease .

    • I AM NOT HATER OF RANBIR BUT yjhd has vacation benefits there isn’t story only songs and also salman do all this things single underhandedly but ranbir require all support from dharma banner PRITAM ‘S MUSIC ETC…..

    • SALMAN KI TO PEHLI MOVIE HI ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER THI AUR SALMAN NE USKE CAREER KE PEHLE 5 SAL ME SALMAN NE BAHOT SARI SUPERHITS AUR BLOCKBUSTER DI THI AUR 5 TH YEAR ME HUM APKE HAI KAUN AI THI JISNE PURE BOLLYWOOD KO HILA DIYA THA WHICH IS THE GREATEST MOVIE INDIA HAVE EVER SEEN SO DON’T COMPARE SALMAN TO RANBIR BABA

    • Yeh bhi toh dekho, Salman old ho ke bhi abhi tak jawan actors par bhari pad raha hai, Yeh jawani hai deewani’s whole 1st week is like holiday because people were hungry for films after 2 months huge gap of IPL.

    • You know one thing.. SALMAN KHAN was just 23 when he crushed the record of all the SUPERSTARS that time.. Also he was only one film old.. Anyway Ranbir is more old than that know…

  3. Finally some body has revealed the truth. Thanks.
    Those who talk about holiday factor let me clarify.all those releases ETT had only 1 holiday.
    YJHD has clicked because of so many Factors put together.Summer holidays of 1 1/2 months,Ranbir Deepika Ex Factor,Good supporting cast, Huge marketing and Buzz and most important Karan Johar Banner. But Salman’s movies work for only one Brand and that is salman Himself. That proves my point. Salman the only superstar who is in a league of his own. His own Brand is enough and he does not require others.

    • There is another thing.. My friends told me that they are going for ADITYA ROY KAPOOR.. Aashiqui 2 & Aditya Roy Kapoor is also another factor for the success… RANBIR is great Star among youngsters.. But these helped him alot…

    • Excuse me but just like Ranbir Deepika, Sallu-Katrina had an Ex-factor

      Not to forget it was the first for YRF and Sallu if you are going to bring Karan Johar into the equation

    • nonsense salmans dabbangg 2 released in 500 more screens and ett had a holiday yet more than 2-3 crs.. that proves my point.. salman fan following gathered over 22 years , ranbirs fan follwing in just 5 years yet he is competing, that proves my point.. nonsense.. if a young actor has genuinely generated a great revenue, instead of accepting hes popular, 100 dogs just keep barking

    • Salman sucks, see the movie he acted since Dabangg to Dabangg 2, all his movie are like C grade, i had promised myself i am not watcing all the crap movies of him, u never see character in his movie, u only see himself, he dont understand what the character is and should be. he is just fooling audience and money freak. he dont have quality in his movie, quantity doesnt matter, nobody gonna give a shit abt him in the future to come!!
