The Bharat Bandh on Monday, 5th July affected film business everywhere, with a majority of plexes/theatres remaining closed and resuming screenings only towards the evening. I HATE LUV STORYS was affected as well, although the film attracted footfalls aplenty when the plexes/theatres resumed screenings from 6 p.m./7 p.m. onwards. The film collected approx. Rs. 2.75 cr. nett on Monday, which takes the 4-day total to approx. Rs. 25.75 cr. nett [Friday to Sunday: Rs. 23 cr. nett + Monday: Rs. 2.75 cr. nett]. Had there been no Bharat Bandh on Monday, the film would've collected approx. Rs. 4.5 cr. nett, the distributors feel.
