Befikre with Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor in the lead roles and directed by Aditya Chopra has finally hit the silver screen today i.e. 9 December, 2016 after a lot of hustle and bustle of promotions. This project of Aditya Chopra is nothing like his old projects and takes a major modern turn with a western concept of ‘no strings attached’. The storyline of the movie celebrates the love in a fun and carefree yet an impulsive spirit of romance. The film has been in much hype since its inception and audiences were expecting a lot from the movie makers. Check out befikre box office collection day 1.
After Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay and Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, no movie could rake in double digit openings and yes, the expectations were now laid on this Ranveer Singh starrer mostly because of Ranveer Singh’s fan following that goes berserk for the first day shows of him and also because he’s coming after a long time while his last release was ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
