Teeny bopper romance Yaariyan scored over arty crime comedy Dedh Ishqiya at the box office in its first week.
Yaariyan can now be dubbed a HIT with the first week collection of Rs. 31.50 crore net, of which 19.20 crore came in the opening weekend itself. The film held its footfalls coming into the weekdays. The movie’s youth-centric theme has appealed to most of the viewers, despite it being panned by the critics.
On the other hand, Dedh Ishqiya won rave reviews but failed to attract crowds to the theatres. Its first week’s collection stands at Rs. 19.50 crore nett of which 11.36 crore came from the opening weekend. The performance has clearly been below par, given the fact that it is the comeback vehicle of Madhuri Dixit.
