Boxoffice can be most unpredictable, but that's the beauty of this business... A section of the industry wasn't too confident of #ToiletEkPremKatha striking a chord in China due to the issue it raises... Well, all speculations / calculations have proven wrong... #TEPK#ToiletHero— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) June 10, 2018
