Stand-up TV comedian Kapil Sharma's debut film Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon has had a strong opening at the box office with collections estimated to be to the tune of Rs 10 crores, a record-breaking collection for a newcomer. Elated Kapil Sharma fans have flooded Twitter with congratulatory messages and 'Kapil Sharma Creates A History' is among the top trends on the social networking site.

A Box Office India report says that the movie has broken the record previously held by Student Of The Year which marked the debut of actors Alia Bhatt, Siddharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan and made Rs 7.5 crores on its opening day.
Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon's opening day figures are also higher than Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty's much-hyped and aggressively-promoted Hero which scooped around Rs 6 crores on its first day. The first day collections are also higher than that of this year's Brothers and Tanu Weds Manu Returns, but lesser than that of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, ABCD 2 and Welcome Back.
Besides Kapil, the cast of the Abbas Mustan-directed laugh riot includes Elli Avram, Simran Kaur Mundi and Manjari Phadnis.
