Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has completed 4 years. The film was directed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Karan Johar.
Upon its release, the film stormed the box office by taking the highest opening on non-holiday and record weekend of all time. It went on to become the highest grosser on non-holiday. The film collected 188 crore in its lifetime run and was declared a blockbuster. At that time, it was the third highest grosser of all time only behind 3 Idiots and Ek Tha Tiger.
YJHD is also the highest grossing film in love story genre. It was kind of a trendsetter and since its release, there have been many attempts to make youth-oriented love stories though none of them was as successful as YJHD was which still remains one of the most popular films of the current era among youth.
Ranbir Kapoor became the darling of the multiplex audience after the release of YJHD and is unarguably the biggest superstar after Khans, Hrithik, Akshay and Ajay. He is again collaborating with Ayan Mukerji for his ambitious superhero film Dragon which will go on floors in November this year.
