The film is now chasing the business of Bajrangi Bhaijaan and PK which are the top two grossers. The film will cross the 300 crore nett mark but PK nett collections are probably out of range and the main question that remains is that where it finishes in terms of the 316 crore nett figure of Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
