Further, according to early estimates, the film's Day 2 (Saturday) box office collection stood between Rs 15 crore and Rs 20 crore due to 'weekend' factor.

Even the torrential rains in many parts of the country could not affect its business.

The Hollywood film clashed with Sonakshi Sinha starrer 'Khandaani Shafakhana' at the box office, which earned Rs 75 lakh only.
