However, earlier big films such as JudgeMentall Hai Kya, Super 30, Kabir Singh, Raatchasi, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Pakkiri, X-Men Dark Phoenix, too suffered from piracy. #IndependenceDay holiday gives biz an additional boost. Will need to score from Fri-Sun. Of course, we have got some Rs 15.5 to 16 cr on day 1 but it would have been Rs 2 cr more, had the prints reached out on time. Akshay Kumar who holds a grip on Independence weekend finally has got some unbelievable numbers on the day. It was a risk worth taking. In fact, day before yesterday we messaged each other, and there is absolutely no problem. Now, the piracy site Tamilrockers leaked the film online for free HD downloading just a day after its release. There is a lot of space and audience is getting to choose from the best.

"Batla House fares well on day one, although numbers are affected due to the clash. I have produced about eight to 22 films by now, and I can proudly say that I have not lost money in any of my films".
