New Delhi: Veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor’s directorial debut ‘Mausam’ starring his son Shahid Kapoor and actress Sonam Kapoor had a good opening Friday as it earned approximately Rs.9 crore on the first day, an informed source said.

Made at a budget of Rs.35 crore, the film released in around 1,900 screens and is going strong with 100 percent occupancy. The film aims to bring back the true romance.

‘Mausam’ is a love story which shows how a couple is forced to estrange by socio-political situations around.

It captures the crest and trough they go through a span of 10 years until they reunite and make a happy ending. Shahid Kapoor plays the role of an air force pilot and Sonam Kapoor a Kashmiri girl.

The film was supposed to release Sep 16 but it was postponed after the delay in getting a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Indian Air Force which had objections over a few scenes.
