Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone when released back in 2009 was a solid hit at the Box Office. With a business of 66.50 crores 11 years back, it was among the top grossers of that year. As Love Aaj Kal 2020 released this Friday, the expectations were to repeat the success.

However, the film has highly underperformed at the Box Office so much so that it won’t even cross the lifetime business of Love Aaj Kal (2009).

The film did start well with collections of 12.40 crores on Day 1 but Saturday and Sunday were pretty average. The overall weekend number was therefore 12 crores less than minimum expectations.

This is a big disappointment for the makers as well as industry because a sequel is always expected to do more than the previous part. In this case, the lifetime will be far below the first part one. However, it’s not like that Love Aaj Kal is the first franchise to disappoint. There have been many Bollywood sequels in the past which earned less than the previous one.
