Despite facing stiff competition from the clutter of releases like Manikarnika, Thackeray, Gully Boy and the recently released multi-starrer Total Dhamaal, the revenge war drama set a new of highest seventh weekend grosser by earning Rs 4 crore.

Your helmets, your gears, your guns... you hold on to, like your life depends on them. This was one army rule we all strictly lived by, through the Shoot of the Film. Once in costume, each and every one of us was responsible for our own gears. You wear them or hold them, it’s going to be with you through the span of the Shoot for that day. Our pockets would be full of protein bars, nuts and bags with bottles of energy drinks, because deep in those jungles sometimes no food trolleys or spot team were allowed to reach. Somedays I would wake up with my right index finger already bent imitating to pull the trigger. Those night shoots full of intense action, ofcourse were peppered with some fun banter and laughs in between shots amongst the boys, where our director @adityadharfilms would also join us. All of this feels worth it, with the generous love the Film is getting from you all. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping the Josh so high. Also, a big shout out to the wonderful set of co-actors I got to work with, that formed our SF team. Dhairya, Guru, Padam, Sparta, Dang, James, Rahul, Nishant, Tashi, Anurag, Himanshu, Beant, Sapru Saab, Gagan, Dev.
Lead star Vicky, who is on cloud 9 with the humongous success of the film has thanked his director and said, "I am really happy for the actors and director of the film because it is Adtiya's (Dhar) first film as a director." He further added, "In today's age, it is very difficult for a debutant director to get backing from producers for the story and then get a huge release for his film. Ultimately, when audience appreciates the film then, it's really special thing for the entire team."
Yami, who is elated with the success of the film said, “Very happy with the kind of response that the film has earned and is continuing to have a great run at the box office. I’m very grateful to the team behind the film, everyone has truly worked very hard. It's amazing to have producers like Ronnie who believe in their content and invest in people like us. I’m personally excited to have such a tremendous beginning to 2019 and I am certain to keep the audiences entertained further too”.
