Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan-starrer Valentine's Day release Love Aaj Kal packed a hefty punch at the box office on its opening day. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, the romantic drama recorded an earning of  Rs 12.40 crore on Friday.

Leading trade analyst Taran Adarsh states the film benefited from releasing on Valentine's Day. According to Adarsh, the film performed better in urban circuits and multiplexes but was unable to witness similar traction in tier-2 cities and mass belts. However, whether it is able to collect double-digit figures during its opening weekend remains to be seen.

Love Aaj Kal has also become Aaryan's highest opener now, followed by the comedies from last year, Pati Patni Aur Woh (Rs 9.10 crore) and Luka Chuppi (Rs 8.01 crore).
