Imtiaz Ali‘s Love Aaj Kal collected Rs 8.10 crore on its third day at the Box Office. The numbers are below expectations but decent. The Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan starrer seems to have been marred by the mixed reviews it received upon its release. Love Aaj Kal opened at Rs 12.40 crore which was a good first-day number. However, the earnings lowered on day 2 – Rs 8.01 crore and now, the first-weekend total of the film stands at Rs 28.51 crore after the addition of Rs 8.10 crore on Sunday.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh released the latest Box Office collection of Love Aaj Kal and wrote that the film has ‘fallen flat’. His tweet read, “#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.” (sic) Also Read - Kartik Aaryan-Ranveer Singh Recreate The Veer-Zoe Pose From Love Aaj Kal And Sara Ali Khan Has an Opinion!
After emerging as Kartik’s highest opening-day grosser, the film now is at the third position on the list of his top opening weekend grossers. With Rs 28.51, Love Aaj Kal is behind Pati Patni Aur Woh that registered the first-weekend of Rs 35.94 crore, jumping on its day 2 and day 3 impressively. The Imtiaz Ali directorial is also behind Luka Chuppi that earned Rs 32.31 crore in its opening weekend.
What is striking to note is that the new Love Aaj Kal hasn’t shown any remarkable growth in its first weekend collections as compared to the original film that released in 2009. The Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan starrer earned Rs 27.86 crore by the end of its first weekend at the Box Office 10 years back.
