It will now have to pass the crucial Monday test to continue its box office haul.
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.
Kedarnath is a story about a Muslim porter who falls in love with an upper class Hindu girl. Their romance is set against the calamitous 2013 floods that ravaged the Indian state of Uttarakhand.
