Earlier, film trade analyst Girish Johar had told Hindustan Times, “The film can easily collect Rs 30 crore in its opening weekend. And if it collects double digit figure of Rs 10 crore on its day one, it may even reach Rs 35 crore during the weekend.”
“Ayushmann has been going through a perfect growth phase, he has been picking the right stories and is doing different kind of story telling. The best part about the film is that he is telling the story in a very clean, quirky, comical way, which an entire family can watch together. The audience loved the trailer and the expectations from the film are very high,” he said.
The film revolves around Ayushmann who is capable of speaking in a girl’s voice and uses his skill to get a job at a sex call centre. It stars Nushrat Bharucha as the female lead.
