As the collection remained on the lower side in the first week, the chance of improving in the second week is nearly zero. The lifetime collection of the film should be 20-22 crores because it will now have to face competitions from new releases. Apart from Irrfan and Kirti, the film also stars versatile actors like Divya Dutta, Arunoday Singh, Omi Vaidya, Anuja Sathe, Pradhuman Singh Mall and Gajraj Rao, who add more star value to the dark comedy flick.
The business of Blackmail till now is as follows:
Week 1: ₹ 16.92 cr
Total: ₹ 16.92 cr
