Love Aaj Kal can be Kartik Aaryan’s highest opener at Rs 10 cr, to ride on his and Sara Ali Khan’s chemistry
Love Aaj Kal, bringing the much talked about pairing of Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan on silver screen for the first time, arrives on Valentine’s Day and is expected to benefit from it being the season of love. This is Imtiaz Ali’s first film since 2017 dud Jab Harry Met Sejal starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma. Film trade analyst Girish Johar expects Love Aaj Kal to get a bullish opening of Rs 9-10 crore, which can even go up to Rs 12-13 crore. “People have liked the trailer and songs. The makers have also recreated songs from the original which are doing well. Sara and Kartik attract the youth and have a huge fan following, so the expectations are very high,” he said. He believes Love Aaj Kal can be Kartik’s highest opening film as his last film Pati Patni Aur Woh opened at Rs 9.10 crore. The romance is a reboot of the 2009 original starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, which had opened to positive reviews at Rs 8.02 crore. It had collected Rs 66.56 crore at the domestic box office and had the worldwide collection of Rs 116.22 crore.
