Film trade analyst Sumit Kadel had tweeted that Satyaprem Ki Katha had sold 51,500 tickets till Wednesday 10 pm which was “one of the best pre-sale for a mid-size film post pandemic.” The film’s opening is however, much lower than Kartik and Kiara’s 2022 blockbuster Bhootl Bhulaiyaa 2 which had opened at a massive ₹14 crore on day 1. It is still better than Kartik’s last theatrical release, Shehzada, which opened at ₹6 crore and turned out to be a flop.
