Kedarnath starring debutant Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput got huge hype on Friday. The movie is directed by Abhishek Kapoor received a fair opening at the box office on day 1. It racked up collections ranging between 7-7.25 crore nett range.
The collections are similar for the first-day figures of films like Raazi and Badhaai Ho. But those films had a smaller release relatively.
As per the BOI, this is the biggest opening figure for Sushant if MS Dhoni is kept sideways. The film garnered audience's interest not because of the actor in the movie but the cricketer himself. With this, Sushant crushed his previous record of Rs 6.30 crore opening which his YRF film Shudh Desi Romance had recived. The movie is likely to grow over the weekend but by what percentage is so far to be seen.
Worth mention here The movie has opened to mixed reviews from the audience and critics. It marks the debut ofSaif Ali Khan's daughter Sara. Audience cannot stop crazed about Sara's acting chops. She has come across as decent character in her first movie.
Sara also has Simmba in the pipeline. It releases on December 28, 2018. The movie also stars Sara alongside Ranveer Singh . It is touted to be one of the biggest release of this year.
