Coming to talk of the box-office collections, it seems the movie will not stop growing this week as well. Firstly, there are no other releases at the theatres. Secondly, the Karni Seni – who was the frontrunner of the protests against the film – seems to have taken a U-turn is a few states. Thus, when the movie releases in these states, the theatres are surely going to go housefull. Thereby, it will be helping the collections of the movie soar higher and higher.
