Mumbai, June 15 (): Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has become the third highest grosser film ever in India after “3 Idiots” and “Ek Tha Tiger”.
Trade analyst Taran adarsh tweeted, “Top 3 grossers in India: #3Idiots – 202 cr, #EkThaTiger – 199 cr, #YehJawaaniHaiDeewani – 155.28 cr [still counting]”.
By collecting ₹155 crore at the domextic box office, the love story starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone has pushed down Salman Khan’s two films – “Dabangg 2″ and “Bodyguard” – to take the third position. However, Aamir Khan’s “3 Idiots” (₹202.47 crore) and Salman’s “Ek Tha Tiger” (₹198.78 crore) continue to be a challenge for the romantic comedy film.
“YJHD” is in its third week at the theatres and has crushed many records at box office. The top 5 highest grosser films list was ruled by Salman Khan with four films before “YJHD” overtook one.
‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ is still running to packed houses all over the country. The trends in box office collections shows the Ayan Mukherji-directed movie is all set to surpass the business of Salmaan Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Ek The Tiger’. If the film goes extremely strong during the third week, film industry experts say the movie could even challenge the record figure of Rs 200 crore set by ’3 Idiots’.
Made on a budget of 50 crore, the film crossed the 100 crore mark within a week, becoming the 20th Bollywood film to join the 100 crore club.
Produced by Karan Johar, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ also stars Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapur in the heart-warming story about family, friends and love.
