Ok Jaanu box office collection day 2: The romantic drama earns Rs 8.98 crore

Ok Jaanu box office collection day 2: Aditya Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor's romance works well for youngsters.

Ok Jaanu, starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor is doing well at the box office. In two days of its release, the film has managed to earn Rs 8.98 crore. The film is appealing to youngsters due to its pleasant theme of contemporary live-in relationships. The critics have however given mixed reviews to the film, which eventually might affect its business at the box office.

The year of 2017 has begun on a romantic note as Ok Jaanu, a remake of Mani Ratnam’s O Kandhal Kanmani, has started its journey at the box office. The film which opened with around 25% occupancy in morning shows and has managed to mint Rs 4 crore on day one, and day two saw a collection of Rs 4.90 cr, which is being considered as an average business.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared, “#OkJaanu Fri 4.08 cr, Sat 4.90 cr. Total: ₹ 8.98 cr. India biz.”

The film saw a box office clash with Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Haraamkhor and Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood debut film, xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the on-screen pairing of Aditya and Shraddha is worth the watch. Their previous performance in Aashiqui 2 is still a benchmark for their respective careers. Shraddha has done good work since her hit film but her recent flick Rock On 2, failed miserably. On the other hand, Aditya has not really had a good career graph. His films, Fitoor and Dawat-e-Ishq, failed at the box office.

So, the success of Ok Jaanu is important for both the actors. Interestingly, Ok Jaanu is a tried and tested formula and its original version, starring Dulquer Salman and Nitya Menen, garnered good response from the audience. Will its Hindi version spun the same magic? Well, we have to wait for some days to know this answer.

Ok Jaanu also stars Leela Samson, Naseeruddin Shah and Kitu Gidwani. The film is directed by Shaad Ali. The screenplay is written by Mani Ratnam. Ali has successfully remade Mani Ratnam films in the past. Saathiya starring Vivek Oberoi and Rani Mukerji was the remake of hit Tamil movie-Alaipayuthey.
