Kartik Aaryan's Love Aaj Kal has been rejected by many filmgoers in its opening weekend. But old releases like Malang and Tanhaji continued to fare well and inched closer to Rs 50 crore and Rs 175 crore marks, respectively.
Riding on huge hype and curiosity, Love Aaj Kal opened to good response on Friday. But mixed verdict by the filmgoers took a toll on the film with its collection going down by around 35 percent on Saturday. However, the movie was expected to show a jump in its business on Sunday, but it failed to do so. Trade experts feel that the viewers have rejected it in its opening weekend itself.
