Dream run continues.” He then added a day-by-day breakdown of the film’s earnings, which shows that it has accumulated collections of over ₹200 crore in week 2 alone. The film has not faced any competition from the other two big-ticket releases at this time- Vijay’s Beast and Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey.
