Mumbai, June 5 -- After a long time, Bollywood has seen a film record a huge opening at the box office. Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD) not only had a great weekend opening, but it also passed the Monday test.
The film shook the Indian market and is doing well internationally too. "Finally, a film has been able to harness the Kapoor scion's true potential at the box office. After drawing the highest-ever weekend numbers for a non-holiday release by overtaking 2012's Dabangg 2, the film has scored phenomenally on Monday as well. It shows how the audience loves quintessential, mainstream Hindi films at a time when everybody is trying to be different," says Akshaye Rathi, a film exhibitor and distributor.
He adds, "YJHD marks the arrival of Ranbir in the league of superstars and establishes the popularity of good Indian rom-com
