Translating…

Kartik Aaryan

and

Sara Ali Khan

‘s film ‘

Love Aaj Kal

‘ is all set to release tomorrow and it looks like the film is all set to make a mark at the box office. According to the latest Box Office India report, the Imtiaz Ali directorial seems to have a pretty decent advance booking but not so good for the weekend.

While the best opening of Kartik is his last release ‘

Pati Patni Aur Woh

‘ which had collected a little over Rs 8 crore but ‘Love Aaj Kal’ is expected to surpass that mark easily due to Valentines Day. Furthermore, the film is expected to get a boost of nearly 40-50% due to Valentines Day and would even make Kartik the first young actor to clock down a double-digit opening day collection. Ayushmann Khurrana might have delivered a couple of films around the Rs 9 crore mark but ‘Love Aaj Kal’ is sure to surpass them as well.

Last year

Ranveer Singh

and

Alia Bhatt

‘s ‘

Gully Boy

‘ had also released around the same time and it had managed to mint around Rs 19 crore approximately. The report also suggests that such films are sure to do better in metros as Valentines Day is actually bigger than most other holidays barring the national holidays.

Meanwhile, Kartik-Sara’s ‘Love Aaj Kal’ will be up against

Joaquin Phoenix

‘s ‘Joker’ which will be re-releasing tomorrow in India. Phoenix, who won the Oscars for the Best Actor after delivering a stunning performance as Arthur Fleck aka Joker is expected to give a tough competition.

In an exclusive interview with Etimes, senior trade analyst Taran Adarsh weighed in the possibilities and said, “What I get right now is that they will be released in selected screens and selected metros. I don’t think it will affect ‘Love Aaj Kal’ because this is a Hindi film and, Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan are teen sensations and hugely popular with the youth.”
