Can Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani beat Salman Khan’s Dabangg 2?

Salman Khan currently holds the record for the highest opening day collections on a Holiday (Ek Tha Tiger – 32 cr) and non-holiday (Dabangg 2 – 20.5 cr). But the kind opening that Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has taken across the country, it could well surpass or get close to the first day business of Dabangg 2 – which released on 10-15% more screens.

It should comfortably beat the opening day collections of other films like Don 2, Rowdy Rathore and this year’s highest grosser Race 2.

Highest Non-Holiday Opening Day

  • Dabangg 2 – 20.5 crore (3500 screens)
  • Don 2 – 14.7 crore (3000 screens)
  • Rowdy Rathore – 14.5 crore (2900 screens)
  • Race 2 – 14.5 crore (3000+ screens)


  • Rowdy Rathore opening collections are greater than those of Don 2.

    It’s tough to beat Dabangg 2. However it may surpass Don 2 and RR’s collections.

    DON2 first day collections are 15.1 crores including TAMIL & TELUGU versions confirmed by TARAN ADARSH

  • haha with 400 more screens…. salman khan is defeated by a kid called ranbir… thats y i m saying that this he needs 3 open weeks nd around 4000 screens to make his movie blockbuster….

  • @indicine…atleat u published my comment…but after a lot of editing in it….may i knw why..??? it wud have more attacking for sallu fans, if u wud have published my original comment….anyway, thanx again, but plz have a look on the comments of some sallu fans too, as they r more filthy than me…

  • now it is proved that even ranbeer’s movie can collect a tremendous amount with such screens nd space….but still salman fans think that salman is giving bb’s bcoz of his stardom……

  • @xzone, even with 3 open weeks and 3000+, and with 3D prints (20% higher price than a normal ticket) srk couldn’t surpass the collection of golmal 3. and here you comment about salman. LOL.

  • @kaan khajoor….which movie of srk did get 3 open weeks..??? don’t cry like a fool….face the reality nd in reality…u knw, wat i was trying to convey….

  • Even after 50 crores and 6 months promotions, and 4-5 clear weeks, Ra.One collected life time collections of 122 crores. Which will be easily crossed by Ranbir.

  • YJHD can and will SMASH Don 2s record but will fall short of Dabangg 2.
    Its been predicted it can collect between 16-18 crores which is fantastic. Srk will get outshone by an actor 20 yrs his junior but still our bhai tops. Bhai truly roxXxXx.

  • @xzone, despite being a hardcore srk fan you also forgot that there was a movie named Don 2? i won’t be surprised.

  • @xzone: go and ask your srk why not releasing his movies for open three weeks, it is only salman name which other actor and producers are scared to release their movie with salman khan.

  • @xzone it doesn’t matter for a Srk movie whether it gets 3 open weeks or not bcoz his movies don’t last that

  • May be it will; May be it will not

    but one thing is for sure Ranbir is not rising superstar anymore…..Now he is A Superstar..

  • 3 open week or 5 open week the fact is srk films can’t beat salman’ films in term of box office collections.

  • no offense to any top actor……….all are huge……..but give SRK a commercial masala movie + 3000 screens + solo release and you will see King size destruction at BO

  • SRK fans rejoicing news of Ranbir
    breaking opening day record of D2
    proves that SRK is no longer capable of
    doing it.

  • rahul.. srk already had n we did see the king size destruction but of every srkian’s prediction of 200 n raising the bar stuff.

  • I don’t know that srk was doing art films all this years that needs to do a commercial film to get big collection at the box office

  • @sachin11 Lol

    Srk can even try romancing 3 heroines in his next super duper romantic all time classic movie Happy New Year but we all know that lasting even new years night will be a struggle for King yet his fans like demented xzone are dreaming of 3 open weeks at the BO…! :-P

    Get real guys, Kings durability at the BO has diminished nowadays because he has lost his STAR / MOJO…! :-P

  • @xzone : The result is there to see. Not about YJHD but for ur comical comments. If so many slaps r not enough then we are ready to give u more. I wonder whether u will come back n comment on this page again after epic humiliation of u n ur srk.

  • Aashiqui2 with new comers collected 80 crs(Just 25 crs short to JTHJ).

    Now YJHD opened better than JTHJ.

    Both films are Romantic genre.

    But Srk fans think that JTHJ under performed due to its romantic genre.

    Now i think in romantic films Aditya Roy Kapur is better than Srk.

    Even he deliverd BB,which is out of reach to Srk now days.

  • lets see. this film is ranbir’s best and only chance to break the record. if it fails to break the record i dont think any of his future movies can break the record. release after IPL is the bestest time to release any film. huge promotions, ranbir deepika pairing, superhit music, dharma productions, solo release, young n fun film. it has everything going its way. this is the reason i say this is the best chance ranbir has got. best of luck ranbir!
