Actor Sonam Kapoor‘s latest film, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, is getting praises from all corners. The film is a subtle take on the same-sex relationship in the country and acceptance around it in the society. The film, with its niche content, is expected to earn a total of Rs 3-4 crore on its first day at the Box Office.
However, the current favourites at the Box Office – Uri: The Surgical Strike and Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi will face a little competition from the Shelly Chopra Dhar’s directorial. Now, will Ek Ladki… be able to dominate the ticket window is something that will be clear after its first-weekend collection. However, considering that the film addresses a subject which still needs wide acceptance in the country, its collections are only expected to be drawn from the cities.
Earlier, talking about its performance at the Box Office, trade analyst Girish Johar told The Indian Express, “The Anil Kapoor starrer will be the first choice of the audience. Uri is also going strong and people are going into repeat mode with it, so it all depends on how Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga start off in the theaters. It has the potential to lead over the weekend but if it doesn’t match up to the standards then definitely other films will take over.”
The film also features Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Rajkummar Rao and Regina Cassandra. Most people have deemed the film as a ‘brave, brilliant and beautiful.’ It will be interesting to see how far does the content of Ek Ladki… takes it at the Box Office. It has also been heavily promoted by Sonam and team across the country. The first-day report is expected to be on par with expectations. As is, fingers crossed!
