The movie will again gain big from the extended weekend, as it released on a Thursday. Also, there is a strong positive word of mouth publicity doing the rounds on social media which will push the crowd to throng the theatres in huge numbers.
The film presents the two stars in a never-seen-before avatar. The venture is co-produced by Zoya Akhtar's Tiger Baby and Excel Entertainment productions. Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Vijay Raaz in pivotal parts.
It will be interesting to see how the weekend collections fare at the ticket counters.
