Citing the fact that kalank is releasing on a working Wednesday, the numbers might be affected during the first half of the day. The box office numbers are expected to rise over the weekend. The film will easily move past the Rs 100 crore mark in its week 1. However, the business will stand affected after April 26, post the release of Avengers: Endgame.
