Expectations are high for a surge in collections on Saturday, considering the film's strong start on Thursday and the anticipation surrounding its release. Although a slight decline in earnings on Friday was expected, "Satyaprem Ki Katha" is now poised for a robust weekend at the box office. With the weekend underway and the holiday period in full swing, the film is expected to benefit from increased footfall.
It is projected that Saturday's collections will be on par with the film's opening day. Moreover, Sunday is expected to witness slightly higher earnings compared to Saturday.

#LeAaunga sung by #ArijitSingh is easily one of the best songs of #SatyaPremKiKatha . Its placement in the screenplay however does such a disservice to the lyricsWould have been beautiful to conclude this tale with this number rather than a random dandiya song like #SunSajni 🤷♂️ pic.twitter.com/iIRdD2DkrP— ANMOL JAMWAL (@jammypants4) July 1, 2023
