Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 has emerged a surprise winner as collections on Monday have held up very strongly. The Monday business of the film will be around 4.25 crore nett which is just 25% down from the first day. The film has had a very strong hold in Delhi NCR and East Punjab as the film finds solid appreciation in these two markets assuring it a good run here at least. The collections remain average in Mumbai and on the lower side in South and East.
The film will probably end up with the Delhi /UP business being on par with Mumbai in the long run. It could even be better even though Delhi /UP is the smaller circuit.
This sort of hold on Monday gives it chance to hit the 35 crore nett mark even though a big film like Shaandaar is coming a day early on Thursday. If this trend continues on Tuesday the it will get a fair amount of screen time even with Shaandaar coming especially in Delhi NCR. East Punjab may be a hit as a big Punjabi film also releases there on Thursday.
