Kartik Aaryan's latest movie Shehzada doesn't seem to have attracted audiences in the same way that his blockbuster Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 did in 2022.

According to expert Taran Adarsh, Shehzada's domestic box office haul after three days is 20.20 crore. Shehzada falls short of expectations.

Shehzada's lacklustre reception will displease not only the cast and crew but possibly even Bollywood insiders.

Shehzada, which Kartik Aaryan co-produces, stars Kriti Sanon, Manisha Koirala, Paresh Rawal, and Ronit Roy and is an adaptation of the 2020 Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.

Saibal Chatterjee, a film critic for NDTV, gave Shehzada two and a half stars out of five.

Kartik's performance, however, was not lacking. "But no matter how Shehzada pans out over its two-and-a-half-hour runtime, lead actor Kartik Aaryan, also credited as a producer, is in fine fettle.

He uses the film as an extended demo reel to showcase his range as an actor. He shows fusing slow-motion flair, some controlled effervescence, and flashes of emotion.
