Though Sonam Kapoor's latest outing Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga opened to decent reviews from the critics, the film it seems hasn't managed to wow the audience with its unusual love story. We say so because after getting off to a sluggish start on day 1, the film didn't witness a big jump over the weekend and ended up with low collections overall. Co-starring Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Juhi Chawla, and Regina Cassandra, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga has been directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar and is the first mainstream Bollywood movie about a lesbian love story. Box Office Report: Sonam Kapoor's Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga Opens to 10% Occupancy.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to microblogging site Twitter a while back and revealed the updated figures tweeting, "#EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga finds limited patronage... Plexes of select metros witnessed growth over the weekend, but the overall total is low... Weekdays crucial... Fri 3.30 cr, Sat 4.65 cr, Sun 5.58 cr. Total: ₹ 13.53 cr. India biz. #ELKDTAL."
Further, a report in Boxofficeindia.com stated, "The film opened poorly and did not grow as it should at the high-end multiplexes on Saturday which were the only theaters it had a chance in. The collections on Sunday were pretty much flat as families were never going to be interested in this sort of content even though from one angle you can call it a family film."
While on one hand, Sonam's film is clearly struggling at the box office, on the other hand, Vicky Kaushal's Uri: The Surgical Strike is unstoppable at the ticket windows. The military drama is faring so well that it has now smashed the record of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion by earning more on day 23 and day 24 than the South biggie. Uri - The Surgical Strike Box Office Collection Day 24: Vicky Kaushal's Film Beats Baahubali 2 Record and Creates History, Rakes in Rs 189.76 Crore.
