Notably, the movie has turned out to be Sidharth Malhotra's lowest opening movie. Unfortunately, the film received scathing reviews and had a rather dismal start with collections of only Rs 3.36 crores on Day 1.
What must have led to this?
"The makers did apply for the censor certificate but apparently the censor board rejected it as the film is about India and patriotism", an exhibitor-distributor told PTI.
Concluding with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Shahid, Deepika and Ranveer starrer, PADMAAVAT, the film saw another steady week, adding 32 crore, thus netting 257 crore (including paid previews) in three weeks (22 days) from India and is a super hit.
After winning over the audience with thrillers like "Naam Shabana", "Rustom", filmmaker Neeraj Pandey is back with yet another suspense thriller which released on February 16. Secondly, competition with Hollywood film Black Panther. Will the film survive the weekend? something to note here is that Sidharth Malhotra has no future projects to talk about yet. Let's wait and watch. Right from playing a student in his debut film Student Of The Year directed by Karan Johar to his latest offering Aiyaary directed by Neeraj Pandey, Mr Malhotra has come a really long way in Bollywood. They are a part of the covert Data and System Diagnostic team in the Indian Army. The film is also said to explore some real life incidents like the Adarsh scam.
