Yamla Pagla Deewana had a good weekend of around 22 crore nett as per early estimates. The weekend is above expectations as prior to release most would have expected a 15-20 crore figure but considering its first day business the film should have finished with a 24-25 crore nett weekend.
The approx daily breakdowns were 7.75 crore nett on Friday, 6.25 crore nett on Saturday and 8 crore nett on Sunday. The film has done extraordinary in Punjab smashing all records in the state and other parts of North India were also very good as well as Gujarat, CP Berar, CI and Rajasthan.
The poor performance has come in Mumbai city, Maharashtra and South where collections remained low throughout the weekend. Multiplex numbers outside Delhi/UP and East Punjab are also not impressive and the film has collected well on the basis of big single screen business.
