It has crossed over Rs 50 crore at the box office since releasing on 23 February.

"We always knew we were making a film that would appeal to the youth. Critics called the film anti-women, misogynistic. But that didn't bother me. I was looking beyond the criticism," Ranjan said.

"For me, my actors Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh are stars. And beyond them, it's the script that is the superstar," he said, adding that there is no threat to his film in the coming week.

"The next big film is the Ajay Devgn-starrer Raid on 16 March. That will be competition for my film."
