Imtiaz Ali directorial Love Aaj Kal, starring Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan, garnered less than impressive figures in its opening weekend. Giving the film tough competition is Malang, starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, Anil Kapoor and Kunal Khemu, which will soon cross the Rs 50 crore mark, reports The Indian Express.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the latest box office figures of Love Aaj Kal. He wrote, “#LoveAajKal is rejected… Dips on Day 2, falls flat on Day 3… Advantage #ValentinesDay [Day 1], else *3-day total* would be lower… Tough road ahead [weekdays]… Fri 12.40 cr, Sat 8.01 cr, Sun 8.10 cr. Total: ₹ 28.51 cr. #India biz. #LoveAajKal  weekend: ₹ 27.86 cr.”Film critic Shubhra Gupta gave Love Aaj Kal a 1.5 star rating and wrote in her review, “It’s one thing to train the lens on the confounded confusions two people straining to understand the thing between them”.
Malang, meanwhile, will cross a new benchmark in its second week. Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Malang puts up a decent total in Weekend 2… Will cross ₹ 50 cr on weekdays… Has weekdays to score, before new films [#ShubhMangalZyadaSaavdhan and #Bhoot] arrive… [Week 2] Fri 2.25 cr, Sat 2.52 cr, Sun 3.25 cr. Total: ₹ 47.67 cr. #India biz.”
