Commenting on the timing of the release, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh said, “This film is releasing on Sunday, on Diwali day, when Laxmi puja is happening in the evening, so people might go on Monday or might go for a spot or current booking. It is a bit too early, we will get clarity closer to the release. As of now, it is excellent.”
“Despite the movie releasing on the Diwali day, we have already generated advance ticket sales of 100,000 tickets, including 60,000 for the 1st day. Considering the huge fan following of Salman Khan across the country, and with its dubbed versions in Tamil and Telugu, the movie has been able to attract audience attention beyond the Hindi belt,” Sanjeev Kumar Bijli, Executive Director, PVR INOX Limited, said in a statement. He believes the film may cross ₹200 crore mark in its first week due to the long festive weekend.
