I heard that the weekend collections were 220 million rupees and Monday was 20.9 million rupees and Tuesday was 20.5 million rupees. So, I am very happy with the response and the way we made the film with a certain budget, the profits are much more than anticipated. So, financially and economically, this film is a big hit,” said Morea.
