The top spot, as many of you might already know, is occupied by the Aamir Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer 3 Idiots. No other film in Bollywood history has come close to doing as much lifetime business as 3 Idiots has. The second spot is presently taken by the Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer Ek Tha Tiger. But that may not remain so if Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani continues its good run at the box office.
Not only did the Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer storm past the 100 crore mark in its very first week, it’s warded off competition from Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 and is going strong in its second week at theatres with a collection of Rs. 141.86 crore net till Monday.
Not to forget that the second weekend collection of YJHD is better than what Ek Tha Tiger raked in during its second weekend in August last year.
If Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani goes past the 150 crore mark in its second week and Rs. 170 crore in its third week, it would be par for the course to challenge Ek Tha Tiger that has the lifetime business of Rs. 186 crore net.
3 Idiots with total collection of Rs. 200 crore net looks untouchable though.
