Veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor's directorial debut Mausam starring his son Shahid Kapoor and actress Sonam Kapoor had a good opening on Friday as it earned approximately Rs 9 crore on the first day, an informed source said.
Made at a budget of Rs 35 crore, the film released in around 1,900 screens and is going strong with 100 percent occupancy. The film aims to bring back the true romance.
Mausam is a love story which shows how a couple is forced to estrange by socio-political situations around.
It captures the crest and trough they go through a span of 10 years until they reunite and make a happy ending. Shahid Kapoor plays the role of an air force pilot and Sonam Kapoor a Kashmiri girl.
The film was supposed to release on September 16 but it was postponed after the delay in getting a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Indian Air Force which had objections over a few scenes.
