In a separate tweet, Mr Adarsh also added that Total Dhamaal has 'found widespread acceptance by families and kids,' which will 'ensure footfalls in Weekend 2.' He tweeted: "Total Dhamaal has found widespread acceptance by families and kids. This factor will ensure ample footfalls in Weekend 2, despite two significant releases: Luka Chuppi and Sonchiriya. Week 2 will give an idea of its lifetime business and whether it will touch/cross Rs 150 crore."

It appears that the cine-goers weren't much affected by the poor reviews Total Dhamaal got, as its box office success tell a different story. On the opening day, Total Dhamaal earned Rs 17 crore and the weekend collections went up to 62 crore.
A week before Total Dhamaal hit the screens, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt's Gully Boy released. The film has earned over Rs 125 crore.
This Friday, Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon Luka Chuppi has clashed at the box office with Sonchiriya, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar.
