'Ishaqzaade' earns Rs 5.2 crore at the opening

Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra’s debut film ‘Ishaqzaade’ hit the silver screen on Friday. It is the fifth biggest opening after Agneepath, Housefull 2, Agent Vinod and Jannat 2 according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

‘Ishaqzaade’ is a very important film for Arjun Kapoor. The fate of Arjun’s acting career depends mostly on this film. Fortunately, the debut actor received rave reviews for his acting. This is also Parineeti’s first solo film after ‘Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl’ and so the film is equally important for her. Directed by Habib Faisal, 'Ishaqzaade' is a love story of two individuals of different religion. They are born to hate but destiny has stored something else for them.

Arjun sheds 50 kg to fit into the role. Made on a budget of Rs 25 crore, Arjun gives credit to Salman for inspiring him to join acting.

Son of Boney and late Mona Kapoor, Arjun is not new to filmdom as he hails from a filmy family.

Let’s see how the film fares during the coming days.
