With no big clashes in theatres and terrific reviews coming in, the film indeed is having a dream run at the box office. According to the latest reports, the film has kept the cash registers ringing both in India and overseas.

Not just that, even the OTT releases like Jai Bhim, Udanpirappe were leaked online within hours of its streaming on popular platforms.
