Had a bountiful start on Friday [Rs 14 cr], slided downwards slightly on Saturday, though the fall was marginal [Rs 13 cr], but had a solid Sunday [Rs 16.5 cr], taking the 3-day total to Rs 43.5 cr nett. Is the second biggest opener of 2012 so far, after AGNEEPATH. The business on Friday and Saturday was affected due to the cricket matches, while the business in North and South circuits got affected due to the strong opposition posed by a Punjabi and Telugu film, respectively. Yet, a fabulous start of Rs 40 cr + weekend has ensured the film a prime place in the biggest openers’ listing
