UP CM to watch Tejas on Tuesday
On Tuesday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will be attending a special screening of Tejas at the Lok Bhawan Auditorium in Lucknow. Kangana Ranaut will also be present at the special screening of the film.

Why Tejas is not working at box office
Tejas has not been able to impress the critics either. Talking about its' poor performance at the box office, producer and film business expert Girish Johar told Hindustan Times, “Every one knows its a fictionalized underdog story. There are planes but those who have watched Mission Impossible and Top Gun, they couldn't find the film to be of that level. I think they probably could have smelled that something is missing. If the reason would have been something else, the film would have at least got a decent start.”
