De De Pyaar De was reasonably stable on this second Friday as Rs. 3.58 crores came in. Compared to the Thursday collections of Rs. 4.48 crores, this is an expected fall, more so since there were three new releases – PM Narendra Modi, India’s Most Waned and Aladdin – that took away the screens.
The collections have reached Rs. 64.63 crores and now it is expected that the film picks up momentum all over again and sees major jumps today and tomorrow. That is required if the Ajay Devgn, Rakul Preet Singh and Tabu starrer still has to stay in contention for the Rs. 100 Crore Club entry.
As for Student of the Year 2, it would go past the lifetime numbers of Student of the Year this weekend. The film has collected Rs. 68.91 crores in two weeks and Rs. 70 crores lifetime of the first instalment would be crossed very soon. Post that the film is expected to bring on Rs. 2-3 crores more and then the lifetime would wrap up under the Rs. 75 crores mark. An average affair for all involved.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
