Kumar added that strict guidelines have to be followed since only a certain number of foreign films are allowed to release in China.

Devgn plays an income tax officer in 1981 Lucknow, who is a morally upright guy willing to be subjected to innumerable transfers in exchange of exposing the rich for the sake of the poor. In his righteous and noble pursuit to erode corruption from every layer of Indian administrative system, Devgn crosses paths with Saurabh Shukla. Shukla portrays the role of the archetypal corrupt politician who is a self-assured tax evader. He is confident that the income tax department is incompetent of exposing him.

The Raj Kumar Gupta directorial released in India on 16 March and was a hit among audience and was also one of the highest grossing Bollywood films of 2018. In its box office run of 22 days, the film made its way to the coveted Rs 100 crore club.

In November, Devgn won Best Foreign Actor award at the 27th Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival in China for his role.
