Love Aaj Kal attracted a lot of people after the trailer was out. Everyone thought this could be another masterpiece by Imtiaz Ali. But it eventually failed miserably. The word of mouth of the film was bad and do were box office collection.
The film released in 1350 screens in India.
This Imtiaz Ali directorial started its first day pretty well at the box office by earning 12 cr. This probably happened due to the fan following of Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan. Eventually the collections of the movie went on dropping down. The weekend was good gor the movie and it made 26 cr. Later the movie went on collecting low numbers. The first week ended with 32.60 cr at the box office. The lifetime collection of the film was 34.99 cr which was far less than the expectations.
