Trade analysts note that the film has been able to sustain well at the box office as no other major films have released after Kesari. However, the film might witness a dip in collections after Kalank's release on 17 April.

Recently, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan engaged in a fun banter after the roaring success of Badla. Amitabh demanded that Shah Rukh, who has financed the courtroom drama under his production banner Red Chillies, present the actors with an added bonus. In response, SRK quipped saying that everyone was waiting for Bachchan to throw a bash.

Badla has been directed by Kahaani director Sujoy Ghosh and is the remake of the 2016 Spanish thriller film Contratiempo. Bachchan plays Badal Gupta, a criminal defence lawyer, who has not lose a case in more than 40 years. Pannu's character, who believes she has been framed for murder, becomes his new client.

Badla hit screens on 8 March and raked in Rs 27.38 cr in the opening weekend.
