The movie raked in Rs 3 crore, Rs 6 crore and around Rs 3 crore on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, respectively. The film's total collection by Monday stood at Rs 17 crore.

The movie has collected Rs 1.83 crore in its first weekend in the state. Its international box office numbers, especially in the US, Australia and Norway, are also good.

According to reports, the movie has also been leaked online, which has hurt its overall box office numbers. The film was released last Friday along with big releases like Yash's KGF: Chapter 1 and Shah Rukh Khan's Zero. It is also facing tough competition from Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar's 2.0 and with Hollywood's Spider-Man and Aquaman.
