Mumbai: Love Aaj Kal opened to mixed reviews from the critics, however, if the box office collections of day 1 are to be considered, the film had a smooth start.
Director Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal, starring Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan, has made approximately Rs 12 crore on its first day of release at the box office.
This is Kartik’s highest opening yet, ahead of the Rs 9.1 crore figure posted by Pati Patni Aur Woh.
The film also got a benefit of being Valentine’s release and with no big competition, Love Aaj Kal looks to improve its collection tally in the coming days. Trade Analysts predict Valentine Day release might have helped the film to collect an additional 3.5 crore to 4 crores on Day 1.
The new Love Aaj Kal like the 2009 release is a love story and tells two stories simultaneously. The film also stars debutant Arushi Sharma and Randeep Hooda in pivotal roles.
