Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 which was much-hyped due to it's first installment's success has had an average collection at the Box Office in the first weekend. It was obviously affected by the 100 crore grossing film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani,which collected around 28.75 crores in its second weekend. Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 couldn't break the opening weekend record of it's prequel.
Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 had huge expectations but it hasn't quite lived upto them. It did good business in Delhi, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh as the Deols are crazily popular over there but had a very low opening in Mumbai, Bangalore and other South Indian circuits.
Instead of the usual growth, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 slowed down even more on Saturday but took a leap on Sunday. The movie released in 1800 screens in the country and collected Rs.22.50 crores at the Box Office in it's debut weekend. Rs.7.50 crore on Friday, Rs.6.50c crores on Saturday and Rs.8.50 crores on Sunday.
The first installment had a collection of Rs 24 crores in the domestic Box Office in it's first weekened but the sequel failed to break it's record. Let's wait and see how it performs on the weekdays.
