Collecting just Rs. 20.25 cr October ranks as Varun Dhawna’s lowest opening weekend grosser. Occupying the tenth spot on the actor’s list of highest opening weekend grossers, the collections of the film does not manage to surpass Varun’s previous releases like Dilwale that collected Rs. 65.09 cr, Judwaa 2 that collected Rs. 59.25 cr, ABCD 2 that collected Rs. 46.35 cr, Badrinath Ki Dulhania that collected Rs. 43.05 cr, Dishoom that collected Rs. 37.32 cr, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania that collected Rs. 33.74 cr, Student of the Year that collected Rs. 30 cr, Badlapur that collected Rs. 23.5 cr, and Main Tera Hero that collected Rs. 22.73 cr.
