New Delhi:

Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan’s Love Aaj Kal witnessed a major drop in box office numbers on its second day of release. The Imtiaz Ali directorial has dropped by a whopping 40% on day two, according to a report in Box Office India. The film had made Rs 12.4 crore on Friday.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote that the film made Rs 8.01 crore on day two, taking its total earnings to Rs 20.41 crore. ''Shocking part is, the decline has come at metros/multiplexes, which is its target audience... Weak at Tier-2 cities as well as mass circuits,'' he wrote, adding that the film ''Needs a miracle to salvage the show on Day 3... Fri 12.40 cr, Sat 8.01 cr. Total: Rs 20.41 cr. #India biz.''

It was Kartik’s career-best opening, ahead of the Rs 9 crore posted by Pati Patni Aur Woh. A remake of the 2009 movie starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, Love Aaj Kal sees Kartik play a double role as Veer (from 2020) and Raghu (from 1990). Sara, on the other hand plays Veer's 20202 girlfriend named Zoe, a snappy city girl who wants to live life at the moment while Arushi plays Raghu's childhood sweetheart Leena.

Meanwhile, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has axed several intimate scenes between the actors in the film. As per the censored list, the CBFC has removed a scene of the lead actors undressing themselves and also reduced the duration of a kissing scene. The board has even asked the makers to blur the visuals of cleavage that is shown after the lovemaking scene.

Audio censoring has also been done.A sexually abusive word has been replaced with 'a**'. The words 'f**k', 'f*****g' have also muted. Finally, 'Haraamzaadon' has been replaced with 'Saale besharmo'.
