New Delhi, April 28 (IANS) Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor's romantic-action film "Aashiqui 2" seems to be wooing box office as it has earned approximately Rs.13 crore in the opening weekend despite the fact that Hollywood venture "Iron Man 3" too came out on the same day and is giving a tough competition, say trade pundits.

Made on a budget of Rs.12 crore, the film's first day collection was Rs.6.35 crore, and on the second day it grossed Rs.6.75 crore, said a statement.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh praised the film and tweeted: "'Aashiqui 2' has had a fantastic start. Though numbers still being compiled, it's one of the biggest starts for a film starring newcomers!"

The movie, a directorial venture of Mohit Suri, released Friday. It has been co-produced by Bhushan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt under their respective banners - T Series Films and Vishesh Films.

"The occupancy for the movie is 40 to 50 percent on an average. More of youngsters and college-going crowds are coming for the movie," Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told IANS.

He added: "The movie can do better in the coming weeks. The release of 'Iron Man 3' can be a reason for the low occupancy," he added.

"Aashiqui 2" grabbed the audience's attention after the release of the song "Tum hi ho", a romantic number with meaningful lyrics, which got over 1,852,947 hits on YouTube within 10 days of its launch.
