October earned Rs4.50 crore on Friday, but added Rs7 crore on Saturday, and Rs7.5 crore on Sunday to the collection.

While the nett total of Rs19 crore is still low in comparison to other Varun Dhawan vehicles, the upward trend of the collections and the positive reviews for the film spell good tidings.

Meanwhile, Tiger Shroff's Baaghi 2 continued its rampant run crossing Rs150 crore on its third weekend. The film managed to earn Rs6.75 crore over Friday, Saturday and Sunday, adding to its tally of Rs143.31 crore earned in its first two weeks.
