The film has already entered the Rs 100-crore club within five days of its release on August 15 (Independence Day) and is now eyeing to cross Rs 150-crore mark.
Taapsee Pannu who also stars in Mission Mangal recently said in an interview that films with heavy content are also proving to be big openers besides commercial movies.
"We have always been seeing thunderous openings for movies that only had pure commercial masala elements but this is like a big step towards the direction where films that are heavy on content are also making a big opening. Of course, it has to be with the right names attached to it. For me also, it's a huge opening. It's the biggest opening for all of us, be it Akshay sir, Vidya, me, Sonakshi, Nithya, Kirti or Sharman. That makes it special and we are very proud of it," she told a website.
