Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani starrer, Satyaprem Ki Katha, has arrived at the box office today. It is a much-awaited film for the audience as Bollywood has not seen a good romantic drama for a long time. And everyone is eager to know about Satyaprem Ki Katha’s first day collection in the theaters.

It is the second film of Kartika and Kiara together after the success of the comedy, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. And fans are expecting another wonderful performance from these two actors. Let’s discuss the estimated value of Satyaprem Ki Katha’s Friday collection we get to see!

Friday Collection Expected to Cross ₹8 Crores

Satyaprem Ki Katha’s trailer has received a positive response from the target audience. And if we believe the early reports of the public review, the romantic drama has got thumps up from moviegoers. However, it is too early to trust these reviews and the picture will be cleared after the afternoon.

Satyaprem Ki Katha movie still

Also, there isn’t the availability of many critics’ reviews until now. The film music, Kiara-Kartik pairing and concept are some of the things that go in its favor. Compared to Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Satyaprem Ki Katha has got less number of screens and hence its advance bookings are also lesser than the former.

However, SKK has a budget of just ₹60 crores which is lesser than the previous film’s budget which stood at ₹85 crores. So, it will work in favor of Satyapreme Ki Katha to make a good profit if it performs well.

As per the early estimates, the romantic film is likely to earn around ₹8 crores. And this amount may go up if the audience showers more love for the film. It will be interesting to see how things would turn up after the afternoon.

Today is a partial holiday due to Bakrid so it is a good chance for Satyaprem Ki Katha to take advantage of it. Whether it would get its benefit or not will depend on the ability of the movie to connect with the audience.

No New Competiton and Poor Show by Adipurush

Currently, there isn’t any new competition for Satyaprem Ki Katha in the theaters. Also, the holdover release Adipurush is not up to the mark with its poor earnings. The other film, 1920: Horrors of the Heart, is also not very strong and it earns decently. All this will help SKK if manages to fulfill the needs of the audience on various parameters.

Kartik Aaryan in Satyaprem Ki Katha Movie

Satyaprem Ki Katha can go below or above 8 crores depending on word of mouth and critics’ reviews. Given the craze for its music and the lack of a good romantic emotional drama film in the theaters for so long, it is likely to get thumps up from the moviegoers.

The rest of the story will be cleared as the day progresses. Whatever the case, I will report the exact first day box office number for the film at the end of the day. Until then, consume other Bollywood content on BOTY and stay tuned for more updates.
