The film held quite firmly on Monday dropping just 35 per cent from Friday as night shows were helped due to the next day being a Holiday. On Eid day the collections jumped 45 per cent nearing Rs. 4 crores daily collections. There will be some holiday leftover today as the film heads for Rs. 33 crores plus extended first week.

Malaysia has performed strongly for the movie with Eid holidays on weekdays keeping the business at high levels, with $600K in the vault, can possibly go over/under $1 million in the full run.
