It is doing an excellent business in Delhi/NCR and Punjab regions because of its Punjabi content. The Delhi/UP collection has gone over 10 crores in first three days which is simply huge for a small budget film like this. The momentum of the film will remain intact during weekdays because the word of mouth for it is extremely positive. It will not have any major competition at the box office before Christmas, so the lifetime collection may surpass 70-75 crores.
