Despite criticism for the film's inability to address the issues of caste division as the original did, the ninth day's earnings saw a rise by more than 50%. Dhadak has minted a total of Rs 58.19 crores. Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the figures on Twitter on Sunday.

The film earned Rs 8.7 crore on its opening day, breaking the revenue record of Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan starrer Student of the Year, which amounted to Rs 8 crores. Produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions along with Zee Studios, the film had received a lot of attention even prior to its release.

Kapoor stars a Parthavi, an upper caste girl from an influential family who falls in love with Khatter's character Madhukar. Dhadak also has Ashutosh Rana playing Ratan Singh, the villainous father who opposes the pair's relationship.
