"I was telling Parineeti that even if the film gets a good opening, its fate is decided on Monday. Tuesday morning when I got Monday's collection, I felt really great," Arjun Kapoor told us.
"Monday is a dead day... if early (Monday) morning youth are going for the film that means they have caught on to the film. The Monday collections were genuinely good. It showed only 36 percent fall. It was Rs.2.77 crore on Monday and Rs.2.64 crore on Tuesday so that's the sign that people are watching the film," he added.
Besides the impressive box office numbers, Arjun is overwhelmed by the positive response to the film. Both the critics and the audiences have given 'Ishaqzaade', directed by Habib Faisal, a thumbs up.
"I am a producer's son, so I understand numbers but that doesn't mean that only numbers matter... We have got a very positive feedback," the 26-year-old said.
