The film is facing a tough competition from Padman at the box office, but footfalls are not coming down. It would have crossed 300 crores in its lifetime, but the ban in a few states marred its prospect. The budget of the film is approx. 220 crores, so it needs to score a good total at the box office to become a profitable venture for the makers. The film has lost 30-40 crores because of the ban and hence the lifetime collection may remain 285-295 crores.
