From enjoyable action sequences to Ranveer Singh’s rowdy performance, the film is garnering a lot of praise.
Reliance Entertainment in a statement said that the movie is doing a strong business at the box office.
“The response has been outstanding but due to state limitation the business was affected (a bit) in places Maharashtra, MP, Bihar and Haryana because of 50 percent occupancy otherwise the number would have been ₹34 crore in domestic market,” Reliance Entertainment Group CEO Shibasish Sarkar told PTI about the film’s opening.
“Besides, close to 1000 odd screens have shut down in COVID-19 times and so these are the things that have impacted. But in spite of that, it has been an outstanding number. It has overshadowed our expectations,” he added.
The film’s box office response indicates that the audiences are back in cinemas and it is a moment of celebration, Sarkar said. “We are hoping the film will earn over ₹75-85 crore in the domestic market over a period of three days,” he added.
