While the film's trailer received a mixed response from the audience, the film has become a talking point for the lead pair's sizzling chemistry and the melodious songs.
As per a report in a leading daily, the film on its opening day may gain good collections as it's Valentine's Day. Estimates suggest that Kartik-Sara's film may rake in Rs 10-Rs 12 crore on its first day of release.
