The romantic drama, which earned Rs 7.25 cr on its opening day, witnessed a significant spike in its collections during the weekend.
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.
Set against the backdrop of the 2013 Uttarakhand flash floods, Kedarnath weaves a romantic tale around a Muslim porter (pitthu, played by Sushant) and a Hindu Brahmin girl (essayed by Sara), while posing a commentary on classism, casteism and religion present in the country.
