After opening at very low numbers, Maidan he put up some kind of fight and on Sunday, Rs. 6.52 crore arrived. This was a slight improvement over what the film had achieved on Saturday when Rs. 5.65 crore had been raised. However, there were signs that a similar push will not continue on Monday.

In fact, what I needed was for Monday to be really good and ideally, above Rs. 4 Crore mark. Actually, saying ideally is also “particularly in this situation” since the start was low. Otherwise, the actual ideal number would be at least Rs. 7-8 crores and that could have been possible if the film had released around Rs. 15 crores, which would have suited its credentials and especially its content that has been universally appreciated. However, the film did not even come close to the lower end of expectations, earning just Rs. 1.20 crore came, which was really heartbreaking. Clearly, the critical praise and positive word of mouth simply didn't travel at all.

With Rs 23.42 crore in his kit so far, the best this Ajay Devgn starrer can look for now is to hold on for the next month and keep collecting something at least day by day. The film simply hasn't worked theatrically so far, and from the continued delays, there are many other factors working against it. Hopefully, audiences will get excited about the film when it hits OTT in a couple of months.

Note: All collections according to production and distribution sources.
