The movie has become the biggest opener of Salman Khan’s career as it earned a whopping Rs 42.30 crore on day one. It is also the second highest grossing movie of 2019, second only to Vicky Kaushal’s military drama Uri: The Surgical Strike. It is likely that the Ali Abbas Zafar period drama might break Aditya Dhar film’s record.
Earlier, Salman Khan had made headlines as he repeatedly mentioned in several interviews how Priyanka Chopra had walked out of the movie at a crucial juncture.
“This is one of the amazing things Priyanka has done. It is a gutsy thing. She has worked so hard. I think she is one of the most hardworking actresses in Bollywood. It is so hard to keep a career here and there (the US). And then the most important film of her life, which would take her perhaps another 10-15 years to get…I mean, it is an amazing thing,” Salman had said during a media interaction.
