Yamla Pagla Deewana had a solid second weekend as it grossed around 8.50 crore nett in its second weekend. This takes the films business to 43 crore nett plus in ten days.
Despite the release of Dhobi Ghat, Yamla Pagla Deewana was still first choice in all circuits except Mumbai, Bengal and South. The North is still going very strong and Sunday was excellent across the board.
Yamla Pagla Deewana is the first outright hit of 2011 and may do a distributor share of around 30 crore. In East Punjab the film is a blockbuster while in Delhi/UP its a Super Hit where the lifetime share could be 5 and 9 crore respectively.
