Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Kedarnath has started climbing the stairs of success as it gathered momentum on the second day of its release and earned Rs 9.75 crore. Good word of mouth and the lead duo’s otherworldly charm has worked in favor of the film and viewers are coming out of the cinema halls with smiles on their faces. Even though Kedarnath is her debut film, Sara Ali Khan has managed to deliver a brilliant performance in this Abhishek Kapoor directorial that fans have fallen in love with her. Adding to the charm is her sparkling chemistry with handsome hunk Sushant Singh Rajput that has left the audience whistling. After a decent start on the opening day, Kedarnath is on a rise at the box office, making its total collection after day 2 as Rs 17 crores.
Trade analyst and Bollywood critic Taran Adarsh shared the latest box office numbers of the film on his social media and said, “#Kedarnath gathers momentum on Day 2... Growth on Day 2 [vis-à-vis Day 1]: 34.48%... Should witness an upward trend on Day 3 [Sun] as well… Fri 7.25 cr, Sat 9.75 cr. Total: ₹ 17 cr. India biz.”
Kedarnath is a love story set against the backdrop of 2013 devastating Uttarakhand deluge. It is an inter-faith romantic drama with good performance by actors. Kedarnath got mixed reviews from critics. While some considered it a dull film, others mentioned that it had the possibility of being a much better film. However, it is a one-time watch.
According to India TV critic, “what works most in the favour of Kedarnath is good performances. None of the actors disappoint. Whether it is Nishant Dahiya, Pooja Gor or Alka Amin, Kedarnath has team of actors who deliver their best through their eyes. Here Sara Ali Khan needs a special mention. The star kid had set our expectations soaring high right with the trailer. Sara shines throughout the film. She is a show-stealer in most of the scenes. Credit should go to the director, who has perfectly brought out every shade of this newbie. Sushant Singh Rajput is at ease in the role of soft-hearted, helpless yet determined lover.”
On the work front, Sara Ali Khan will next be seen in Rohit Shetty's directorial Simmba, whereas, Sushant will next feature in Abhishek Choubey's Sonchiriya. While Simmba is an action-packed entertainer and mostly looks like Shetty's blockbuster Singham starring Ajay Devgn, Sonchiriya is based on dacoits and has an ensemble cast. Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, Ashutosh Rana and Bhumi Pednekar are in lead roles in this crime drama.
