R Balki's Ki and Ka, an unconventional love story starring Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor embarked onto a good start at the Box Office as the film raked in around Rs 7.30 crore on its opening day, 1 April.
The film recorded low occupancy of around 15 to 20 per cent in the morning shows. However, the collections picked up well towards the evening and late night shows - a positive sign for the film. The best collections - as expected - came in from Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Pune. The collections at mass-dominated circuits like CI (Central India) did not disappoint either as the film collected approximately Rs 26 lakhs in the region.
A further jump in collections is expected today followed by a steady Sunday as the film looks to come close to the Rs 25 crore opening weekend mark at the Box Office. The critic reviews range from mixed to negative and the audience word of mouth will be reflected in the collections from Monday on.
Ki and Ka is the third biggest opener of the year after Airlift (Rs 12.35) and Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 (Rs 8.15)
