Satyaprem Ki Katha, the highly anticipated romantic film starring Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani, hit the theaters with much anticipation on its opening day. Directed by Sameer Vidwans, the film managed to garner a decent collection of around ₹9.25 crore on Thursday, which coincided with the festive occasion of Eid al-Adha. Despite opening lower than their previous collaboration, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, the film has received positive reviews from critics, and positive word of mouth could potentially boost its performance in the coming days.
The movie, featuring an ensemble cast that includes Supriya Pathak, Gajraj Rao, Siddharth Randheria, Anooradha Patel, Rajpal Yadav, Nirrmite Saawaant, and Shikha Talsania, revolves around a heartwarming love story. The positive reception from critics suggests that the film may gain momentum in the box office race.
According to renowned film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Satyaprem Ki Katha managed to collect an estimated ₹9.25 crore on its opening day. However, Boxofficeindia.com noted that the collection would have been even more impressive if it hadn’t been for the Eid holiday factor. The film’s performance on the crucial second day, a working Friday, will determine its trajectory in the coming weeks.
Comparatively, Satyaprem Ki Katha’s opening collection falls short when compared to Kartik and Kiara’s 2022 blockbuster, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which raked in a massive ₹14 crore on its first day. Nonetheless, it surpasses Kartik’s previous theatrical release, Shehzada, which opened at ₹6 crore but failed to leave a mark at the box office.
In a traditional gesture, Kartik Aaryan visited the Siddhivinayak Temple to seek Lord Ganesha’s blessings for the film’s success, as he had done for his previous movies. The actor expressed his gratitude on Instagram, sharing a picture from the visit and stating, “Overwhelmed with your Pure Love.”
Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Satyaprem Ki Katha marks the reunion of Kartik and Kiara after their successful collaboration in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The film, initially titled Satyanarayan Ki Katha, underwent a name change to Satyaprem Ki Katha to avoid potential controversies. The movie’s music, featuring popular tracks like “Naseeb Se,” “Aaj Ke Baad,” “Pasoori Nu,” as well as energetic dance numbers like “Sun Sajni” and “Gujju Pataka,” has been well-received by the audience.
As the film progresses through its theatrical run, the audience’s response and continued support will play a vital role in determining its overall success. Movie enthusiasts eagerly await the upcoming box office figures and the film’s journey in the weeks to come.
