Yamla Pagla Deewana’s opening was excellent in the single-screen cinemas of North India and fair in the multiplexes. In Gujarat and Saurashtra, collections shot up from the second/third show itself. At many other centres too, a jump was witnessed as the day progressed. The reason being that Yamla Pagla Deewana is a mass entertainer. The film will also do very well in the single-screen cinemas and fair business in the multiplexes in the coming days. The producers of the film have already made a handsome profit before the film’s release, and the distributors, who’ve acquired the film, will also earn on their investments.
Band Baaja Baaraat is still good even in its 5th week with Rs, 1,02,63,099 from 170 cinemas.
