Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani-starrer Satyaprem Ki Katha has been holding steady at the box office, on the strength of positive word-of-mouth. According to industry tracker Sacnilk, the movie earned Rs 3.85 crore on Wednesday, bringing its total domestic collections to Rs 50.61 crores in a week. However, there was a slight decline in earnings, as compared to Tuesday’s figure of Rs 4.05 crore. On July 5, the film had an overall Hindi occupancy rate of 11.87 percent.
The film had a decent start at the box office, earning Rs 9.5 crore on its opening day. However, compared to Kartik-Kiara’s previous film Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Satyaprem Ki Katha took a bit longer to join the Rs 50 crore club. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, released in 2022, was a blockbuster that attracted audiences back to the theatres, and it managed to earn Rs 50 crore within its first weekend. In total, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 collected Rs 185 crore at the box office.
Helmed by Sameer Vidhwans, the film also stars Supriya Pathak Kapur, Gajraj Rao, Siddharth Randheria, Anooradha Patel, Rajpal Yadav, Nirrmite Saawaant, and Shikha Talsania.
Kartik and Kiara surprised their fans by visiting a movie theatre recently, where they received a standing ovation for their performance in the film. Taking to her Instagram account, Kiara wrote, “When the audience gives us a standing ovation, that’s when you realise magic has been created. A moment to cherish forever. AlI want to say is Thank You from the entire team of #SatyapremKiKatha.”
The Indian Express’ Shubhra Gupta gave the film 2 stars. A part of the review read, “Somewhere under the overwrought and overcooked plot of Kartik Aaryan-Kiara Advani-starrer is a real film about two people dealing with troubled pasts, but it gets buried under everything else that the movie throws at us.”
