He tweeted, "Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar maintains the grip on Day 2… A 34.27 percent decline on a working day - after a holiday - was inevitable… Biz (business) should start moving from Friday [evening] onwards, with Saturday and Sunday giving that extra boost… Wednesday ₹15.73 crore, Thursday ₹10.34 crore. Total: ₹26.07 crore India biz."
After its release on Holi, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar had registered the highest opening for a rom-com in India.

On Thursday, Taran Adarsh had shared Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar's day one collection, and tweeted, "Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar does VERY WELL on day 1… Got a boost due to Holi festivities in several states, but lost out on substantial chunk of business where Holi was celebrated a day early [Mumbai; working day]… Wednesday: ₹15.73 crore India business."
Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar also features Anubhav Singh Bassi, Dimple Kapadia and Boney Kapoor alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. However, there were several reports of surprise cameos that made the headlines. There were reports that claimed that Luv Ranjan's go-to actors, Kartik Aaryan and Nushrratt Bharuccha, have also made an appearance in Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar. In a recent interview with India Today, the director finally broke his silence over the alleged cameos. Luv Ranjan had said that he was 'not aware' of such reports and confirmed that he has not shot with Kartik for Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar.
