The movie, which is a light romantic drama, shows a contrasting lead pair, played by Irrfan and Parvathy. This film is Parvathy’s Bollywood debut. Qarib Qarib Singlle clashed with Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda’s Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana, a film which has managed to earn Rs 4.22 crore. Both the newly released flicks have been facing a tough competition from the Ajay Devgn starrer comedy-drama Golmaal Again which still posses a good hold in the theatres across the nation.
