It looks like, the film will cross around 20 crores in the first weekend.


Talking about the film, Vidya Balan said to a leading daily, “Slapping, kicking. Initially, Srijit (director) would say if you don’t give it your all, we’ll have to keep shooting. After this, just the first couple of takes. Actually not the first couple of takes, the first couple of rehearsals. I thought I will see how much force I can apply, I was worried about ruining someone’s face (laughs). I play the madam of a brothel who is very very aggressive and powerful. I don’t think I have played such a powerful character so far. She is unabashedly powerful. There will be also a lot of physical power to her.”
