Could not run in theaters due to lockdown

The film was released in theaters on 13 March. Despite opening with Rs 4.03 crore, the film grossed only Rs 9.36 crore at the box office. In fact, theaters across the country were closed soon after the release of the film in view of Coronavirus. Due to this, it could not run for more than two days. Kareena Kapoor and Deepak Dobriyal also have important roles in this film, directed by Homi Adajania.
