The film continues to go steady at the box office and is heading towards the 60 cr mark,despite a big Hollywood release – Comments trade analyst Taran Adarsh, “KEDARNATH crosses 50 cr. Maintains a strong grip in weekend 2, despite a reduction in screens with Hollywood biggie AQUAMAN. Should comfortably sail past 60cr on weekdays”.

While KEDARNATH met with a few obstacles along the way , the film emerged victorious at the box office, something that Abhishek Kapoor had complete confidence in. He says, “Never did I doubt that I will complete this film, release it and it would make it to people’s hearts. Movies are like my children. I will do anything in my power to secure it and I have immense faith in them. Making KEDARNATH has been a yatra in itself. I’m a believer in shiv and it is that faith that has been with me through this entire journey
