Dharma Productions I Hate Luv Stories starring Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor is a box office HIT. The film did Rs 32 – 33 crores of business in Week 1, followed by a decent (although slightly below expectations) second weekend of Rs 6 crores. Without much competition in the coming weeks (until Khatta Meeta releases on 23rd) the film should cross the 45 crore mark.
What the success of the film means to all those involved
- First hit for Imran Khan since his super successful debut with Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. His last two films Kidnap and Luck were box office disasters.
- First career hit for Sonam Kapoor, her first two films Saawariya and Delhi 6 flopped.
- Biggest hit in the last decade for Dharma Productions for films not starring Shahrukh Khan. Their other productions like Kurbaan, Wake Up Sid, Dostana, Kaal didn’t do quite as well.
Overall business-wise, I Hate Luv Stories has lived upto expectations.
