Facing competition from new releases this Friday including Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani 2, Emraan Hashmi’s The Body and Nick Jonas’ Jumanji, the Muddassir Aziz-directorial Pati Patni Aur Woh, starring actors Ananya Panday, Bhumi Pednekar and Kartik Aaryan in the lead, continues to enjoy its successful run at the theatres. Garnering heavy footfalls still, the rom-com minted a total of Rs 59.02 crore by the eighth day of its release.

Sharing the unperturbed numbers on his social media handle, Indian film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed, “#PatiPatniAurWoh continues to attract footfalls, despite multiple films invading the marketplace [#Mardaani2, #TheBody, #Jumanji] + reduction of screens/shows… Expect strong results on [second] Sat and Sun… [Week 2] Fri 3.05 cr. Total: ₹ 59.02 cr. #India biz. (sic).”

The much-awaited film Pati Patni Aur Woh, starring Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday, finally hit the cinema screens on Friday. Filling out of the cinema hall after the first day’s show, fans only poured out praises on Twitter for the movie that redefines and also underlines some aspects integral to marital bonds across the world.

Pati Patni Aur Woh is a romantic comedy film produced by Renu Ravi Chopra. It is a remake of the 1978 marital comedy Pati Patni Aur Woh. In the new version of the film, Kartik plays the role of Abhinav Tyagi AKA Chintu Tyagi who is not a usual confident casanova but an IIT topper and a government employee.

Bhumi plays the role of Vedika, who is a modern-day independent and confident woman, who doesn’t shy away from telling her prospective partner that she likes sex. Ananya Pandey plays the role of Tapasya Singh, a fashion designer from Delhi who wants to set up a leather products manufacturing unit in Kanpur.

Directed by Muddassir Aziz, Pati Patni Aur Woh also has cameos by Kriti Sanon and Sunny Singh. While Kriti had teamed up with Kartik in Luka Chuppi that released early this year, Sunny has worked with Kartik in the Pyaar Ka Punchnama-series and in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety that released last year.
