The much-requested comparison between two of the biggest hits so far this year – Shahrukh Khan’s Chennai Express and Ranbir Kapoor’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. The only common factor in both the films is the presence of Deepika Padukone, who has staked her claim as the numero uno actress in the industry, ahead of Katrina Kaif no less.
Now, coming to the box office collections of the two films, Chennai Express benefitted from the most lucrative holiday period – the Eid weekend. Whereas Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani released during the most profitable non-holiday period – the weekend after the Indian Premiere League. Also, YJHD released on 15-20% fewer screens (3100 vs 3600)
At the same stage (6 days), Chennai Express has collected a record-breaking 137.11 crore (130.36 excluding paid previews), while Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani did business of Rs 97.1 crore in the same number of days.
The SRK starrer failed to break the Monday and Tuesday records of YJHD, but comfortably went past the Wednesday collections of the film by more than 30%.
Below is a detailed box office comparison between Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Chennai Express.
