The film saw an overall occupancy of 41.32 per cent and the highest occupancy rate was recorded at 46.18 per cent during night shows.
On the other hand, Salman Khan’s film failed to cross Shah Rukh Khan Pathaan’s Day 1 collection. For those unversed, Pathaan revived Bollywood after multiple failures at the box office. On its opening day, Pathaan had crossed Rs 55 crore and the film emerged as the first Hindi film to cross Rs 100 core globally.
Speaking of Salman Khan’s work, the star is currently hosting Bigg Boss 17. He was last seen in Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan bankrolled by his own production house, SK Films. Katrina Kaif, on the other hand, appeared opposite Ishaan Khatter and Siddhant Chaturvedi in Phone Bhoot.
