According to Sacnilk, the Katrina-Vijay starrer earned ₹3.75 crore on its third day (Sunday) and ₹ 3.45 crore on Saturday. In the Hindi language, the film ran with a theatre occupancy of 6.89% in the morning show, 9.16% in the afternoon shows, and 11.38% in the evening shows. Night shows were filled to 13.57% of its capacity.

In the Tamil and Telugu languages, the film faces severe competition from other Pongal releases like Dhanush’s Captain Miller, Mahesh Babu’s Guntur Kaaram, HanuMan and Ayalaan. Guntur Kaaram has emerged victorious in the five-way clash. The Mahesh Babu starrer has collected a staggering ₹94 crore in its five-day theatrical run. Teja Sajja starrer HanuMan also came out as a surprise for the audience and has minted ₹68 crore in domestic cinemas.
