Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, the historical drama starring Ajay Devgn in the lead role, has continued to rule the ticketing counters and saw a major jump on a partial holiday, as it minted a total of Rs 15.5-16 crore on Day 6 of its release, thus standing at a total of Rs 106.96 crore. 

Box Office Report has claimed that the rise in collections was mainly due to the celebrations of Makar Sankranti in North India “especially Gujarat / Saurashtra which seems to have had another 2 crore net day on Wednesday”. Claiming that it has been 'extraordinary' in the Mumbai circuit, reports suggest that it will  clock up a 50 crore net plus number in the circuit in week one and the way it is going, the film could even do 100 crore net in the circuit.”

The report claimed that the film is not 'gaining much' in bigger multiplexes, and was 'flat out' on Lohri, in places such as Delhi & Chandigarh.

Meanwhile, speaking about the competition and clash with Tanhaji, Meghna Gulzar said, "This is a distribution decision that was taken by the film's distributor and I think they believed that both films are very different and will find their audience. I think that also came from a place of faith in the film. Considering how populated our film release calendar is, it is extremely difficult to find a solo release."
