The film collected ₹27.54 crore on the opening day and ₹24.08 crore on second day, taking the total to ₹51.62 crore. However, Sajid Nadiadwala directed “Kick” starring Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez earned ₹53.55 crore in just two days, while Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor starrer “Singham Returns” collected ₹ 53.14 crore.
