Anil Kapoor- Sonam Kapoor- Rajkummar Rao starrer Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga hit the theatrical screens this Friday. The film which marks the directorial debut of Vidhu Vinod Chopra's sister Shelly Chopra Dhar deals with the theme of same-sex love. However, despite receiving glowing reviews from the critics and a thumbs up from the audience, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga took off on a slow note with an occupancy rate of just 10% in the morning, but later picked up business in urban centres in the evening shows.
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga minted Rs. 3.30 crores on its opening day. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga had a lacklustre start, but picked up at select urban centres towards evening... Growth on Day 2 and Day 3 essential for a respectable weekend total... Fri ₹ 3.30 cr [1500 screens]. India biz."
Meanwhile here's how the netizens reacted to this Anil-Sonam-Rajkummar-Juhi starrer.
#EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga What a brilliant movie!! I Loved it @sonamakapoor you are such an amazing Performer.. You lived Sweety! I loved the way we get to explore her life & pain she went through. Even the comedy is so high And the Climax is so touching!"

"Thank you @sonamakapoor for humanizing the cause. Everyone should watch #EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga to experience what homophobia - often unintential does to a life especially during adolescence. This movie is told from the heart without being preachy #LetLoveBe @gazalstune."

"Sonam Kapoor. Was never a fan of hers, but today, she has my #respect. I watched #EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga and that is how she got it."

"#EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga is a beautiful, feel good film. It is so entertaining and full of humour and has a complete arch from start to finished. Loved all the performances, especially @RajkummarRao and @AnilKapoor! @sonamakapoor & @ReginaCassandra are such a beautiful pair."
"@sonamakapoor may not be the greatest actress but she is definitely bravest actress from the current lot. It definitely requires guts to play #lesbian character in the mainstream cinema in the country like India. Hats off girl!! #EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga."
