Amidst the controversy and buzz, the Kedarnath starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan has finally released yesterday. The film has received too many positive reviews not just from the critics but from other corners as well. The critics and audience were simply bowled over Sara Ali Khan’s performance who did well despite being her first film. She gained good praises with Sushant Singh Rajput. As per reports, the film managed to get screened more than 2000 screens all over the country and had great expectations to do well on the first day. The collection was decent for the film which was made with the budget of 60 Crores including promotion and other costs.
As per reports, the 1st day box office collection for Kedarnath reached to around 7 Crores, which is a decent amount for any film that has a debutant in the film. In fact, it surpassed the collection of the expected figures of the audience and expert. Thus the film would witness a good amount of momentum during the first weekend. Though the reviews were mixed the kind of word of mouth the film enjoyed made the difference at the end of the day. In fact, it did well for Sushant Singh Rajput as well as his previous movie Rabta with Kriti Sanon failed to do well at the box office.
Now, the film has two more weeks to perform and earn big to make a good collection at the box office as we have the film Zero hitting the screens. The SRK, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif starrer movie will certainly prove out to be a damager in a big way to Kedarnath. The experts feel that the film would collect 30 Crores plus after the first weekend and would come close to 100 crores within the two weeks. So far Sara Ali Khan has been lucky when compared to other debutants like Jhanvi Kapoor and others to get a better start at the box office. Thanks to the aura she has with her screen presence that has made all the difference for the film.
