For actors Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali Khan, it was a special Friday as their film 'Zara Hatke Zara Bachke' was released in theatres. After extensively promoting their film across the country, and meeting people in different cities, the film was released on June 2. Directed by Laxman Utekar of 'Luka Chuppi' and 'Mimi' fame, the film saw a good opening.
'Zara Hatke Zara Bachke' opened at Rs 5.49 crore on day 1 in India. The film got a boost because of its 'Buy 1 get 1 free' ticket offer and affordable pricing of tickets which encouraged more people to hit the theatres. This is also the first time that Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali Khan shared screen space. Their chemistry and binding during promotional tours were liked by the audience who headed to the theatres to see the story of their characters unfold.

'Zara Hatke Zara Bachke' is pure comedy territory in the beginning. Kapil is a yoga instructor, and Soumya is a tutor; their two-year marriage is still going strong. Both are pressed for space in their home, with mummyji, daddyji, mamaji, mamiji, and a nephew who is far too clever for his own good, frequently placing himself between the young couple when they want to cuddle. As Soumya sees it, the only way out is to find a place where they can enjoy their solitude, and to that end, the two start on a route fraught with stumbling obstacles, including a fake divorce.
