With the huge failure of Tubelight and Jab Harry Met Sejal, all eyes were on Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. The film released in 3000 screens across India and in 590 screens overseas. While Airlift had collected Rs 11 crore net approx (Rs 110 million net approx) and Jolly LLB 2 had collected Rs 12 crore (120 million) net approx on its first day.
