Its two-day collections are pegged at Rs 17 crore by trade analysts.

Sunday's collections now remain crucial for the long-awaited film. It is important to note that the film has been banned in several district of Uttarakhand for allegedly causing religious hurt. Several petitions were filed against the film in different parts of the country, alleging the tragic romance promotes "love jihad". Satpal Maharaj said that the government would henceforth consider reviewing a movie's script before granting it permission to shoot.

The film opened to mix reviews with some criticising the plot for being just another run-of-the-mill love story. Sara, however, has been praised for her confident debut and stellar screen presence.

Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, Kedarnath is a story about an interfaith couple set against the calamitous 2013 floods that ravaged the Indian state of Uttarakhand.
