Film distributor Akshay Rathi told indianexpress.com that it wouldn’t be a shocker if the film crosses Rs 200 crore club within three days of its release. He said, “Day one across languages, I wouldn’t be surprised if the film rakes in Rs 70 crore on the first day itself. As far as the weekend is concerned, the film across the languages within India would do around the business of net amount of Rs 230 + crores.”
