Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby Deol starrer "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2" has opened to poor response at international markets.
A sequel to the 2011 hit film of the same name, "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2" minted around ₹1.39 crore in the opening week at the overseas circuits.
In the UK, the action comedy film raked in approximately ₹61.27 crore from 60 screens. "UK: #YPD2 Fri £ 27,113, Sat £ 41,923. Total: £ 69,036 [₹ 61.27 lacs] from 60 screens," trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"Yamla Pagla Deewana 2" could collect only ₹32.41 lakh from both USA and Canada markets where the movie was released in 99 screens. "USA & CANADA: #YPD2 Fri $ 56,800 [₹ 32.41 lacs] from 99 screens," Taran tweeted.
In Australia, the film fetched ₹27.73 lakh and its collections were below par in New Zealand circuits.
"AUSTRALIA: #YPD2 Thu A$ 2,937, Fri A$ 20,049, Sat A$ 28,173. Total: A$ 51,159 [Rs 27.73 lacs] from 22 screens."
"NEW ZEALAND: #YPD2 Thu NZ$ 5,264, Fri NZ$ 14,474, Sat NZ$ 19,885. Total: NZ$ 39,623 [Rs 17.85 lacs] from 15 screens."
Directed by Sangeeth Sivan, "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2" hit the screens on 7 June. Unlike its prequel, the movie failed to impress the critics and garnered negative reviews.
"Yamla Pagla Deewana 2" opened to poor response at the domestic box office as well. The movie, which did relatively better in the northern circuits, minted approximately ₹7 crore in its opening day and is facing tough competition from Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani," which was released a week earlier.
Apart from the Deol trio, the movie also stars Neha Sharma, Australian model-turned-actress Kristina Akheeva, Annu Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Johnny Lever and Sucheta Khanna in important roles.
