With no other big names in the cast, the film completely relies on the shoulders of its lead actor Alia Bhatt. But looks like a good word-of-mouth promotion and decent reviews have also worked in the film’s favor. The film is heading toward 50 crores figure in its first week. If it could score a half-century in the first week, it would be a great accomplishment for the film and it may earn the tag of SUPERHIT.
The business of the film is now as follows:
Day 1: ₹ 7.53 cr
Day 2: ₹ 11.30 cr
Day 3: ₹ 14.11 cr
Total: ₹ 32.94 cr
