#KisKiskoPyaarKaroon packs a SOLID punch, raking Rs 28.81 cr in its opng wknd in India. The film held consistently well on all 3 days. SUPER!? taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) September 28, 2015
This is just short of Mr Adarsh's predicted number: (Also Read: Kapil Ki Movie Makes Rs 18 Cr Already, Forecast Reads 'Phenomenal')
#KisKiskoPyaarKaroon has grossed Rs 18.75 cr on FriSat. Should have a Rs 30 cr [/-] opening weekend in India, which is PHENOMENAL.? taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) September 27, 2015
While box office receipts haven't totaled up to the lofty first weekend figures set by films like Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan, multilingual hit Baahubali, or even Akshay Kumar's Brothers, Kapil Sharma has much to smile about.
According to Box Office India, the opening day collection of over Rs 7.5 crores has set a new record for a film with a newcomer in the lead. The previous holder of this record was Karan Johar's Student Of The Year which was headlined by three first-timers - Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra.
Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon is directed by Abbas-Mustan and also features Arbaaz Khan, Elli Avrram, Manjari Phadnis, Simar Kaur Mundi and Sai Lokur in the cast.
