It is projected that the film will have a lifetime collection of about Rs160 crore but this will depend upon today's earnings. The film is likely to become the fourth highest-grossing comedy after movies such as Housefull 4 (2019), Golmaal Again (2017) and Good Newwz (2019).

Anek, on the other hand, being a niche film, performed poorly through the week. The film is expected to collect about Rs7 crore nett by the end of week one.

The acclaimed Hollywood film Top Gun: Maverick, meanwhile continues to fare decently and should clock around Rs19.5 crore nett by the end of its first week.

Today’s big release Samrat Prithviraj had a slow start on Friday morning as the advance booking was also underwhelming, but the historical epic, which stars Akshay Kumar, Manushi Chhillar and Sonu Sood, could pick up on Saturday and Sunday.
