We can easily say that the Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawwani Hai Deewani is a hit and what is even cooler is that we can say that it is a hit especially overseas because fans made sure to see the film its first weekend. The Ayan Mukerji directed film had one of the biggest opening weekend in the overseas markets this year with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani brininging in $ 3.9 million (Rs. 22 crore). In fact, the film entered the Top 10 in many overseas markets!
Produced by Dharma Productions and released by Eros in the international markets, YJHD has garnered positive reviews from film critics and audiences alike globally and continues to storm the box office across territories.
Commenting on the film’s performance, Pranab Kapadia – President Marketing & Distribution, Eros International plc said, “Expectations were high from the film and the response has been outstanding with the film instantly embraced by the overseas audiences. Collections in overseas, like India, have exceeded expectations. It has featured in the top 10 films in the US, UK, Australia & New Zealand box offices and with such strong word of mouth and positive reactions, we expect the film to continue its dream run at the box office’.
Apoorva Mehta, CEO Dharma Productions added, “Everyone at Dharma Productions is naturally bowled over with the unprecedented success of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani! It has lived beyond our expectations and I think the film largely connected with the youth. And the biggest draw is undoubtedly the Ranbir Kapoor-Ayan Mukherji combination! The reaction to the film has so far been stupendous and we hope this fever continues with the same steam!”
