With this, Dinesh Vijan and Imtiaz Ali’s production has also emerged as the second-highest opener of the year 2020 so far. Then on Saturday, instead of growth, it had recorded an unexpected drop of 35.40% vis-a-vis Friday and minted the amount of 8.01 crores.
On the next day i.e. Sunday, at an almost similar note, Love Aaj Kal has bagged the amount of 8.10 crores and raised 3 days total collection to 28.51 crores nett at the domestic box office. In 2009, Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer Love Aaj Kal did the business of 27.86 crores in 3 days.
