Zoya Akhtar's directorial film "Dil Dhadakne Do" (DDD) has shown good jump on second day at the domestic box office. After earning ₹10.53 crore on the opening day, the film collected ₹12.27 crore on the next.
The two-day box-office collection of "Dil Dhadakne Do" stands at ₹22.8 crore.
"#DilDhadakneDo witnesses GOOD growth on Day 2. Major centres/plexes are rocking! Fri 10.53 cr, Sat 12.27 cr. Total: ₹ 22.80 cr. India biz," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The film starring Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Farhan Akhtar, Anil Kapoor and Shefali Shah in pivotal roles was released in 2,300 screens across India.
"Dil Dhadakne Do" opened to mixed reviews from critics, but the audience have appreciated the film as the occupancy increased on second day. The film, which talks about a dysfunctional family, targets audience in multiplexes mostly, but that didn't hamper the box-office performance of the film.
"Dil Dhadakne Do" is now looking to have a solid opening weekend of more than ₹35 crore total income.
"Like her earlier films, Zoya's DDD, this film is not for single screen audiences. More important, even in the multiplexes, the film will attract audiences in the upper circuit properties in the metros. Through the length of the film makes it a bit of a drag," says Shaaminder Malik, an independent exhibitor and trade analyst, told Business Standard.
"The ticket prices have been increased by around Rs 25 to 30 on an average. This is what may have contributed to the high collection too. Occupancy wise, the movie recorded 25 to 30 per cent, as against Tanu Weds Manu Returns's 60 per cent in its third week," Malik said.
