We didn’t really expect to earn money from this but our main aim was to keep the film industry moving and to get the audiences back in the halls and we have succeeded in this. The film will do better business on Saturday and the day after. We are confident that the audiences will increase after Saturday and Sunday. Even the reviews of the film are getting better’, added Rathi.
