Talking about competition with Akshay Kumar's Good Newwz, Salman said that he would the happiest if Akhay's film do better than his. "I would have been the happiest if Akki's film could have opened with bigger numbers than that of ours but this is also good. I believe that it is not just about my film or Akki's or of Shahrukh's film. I say all of our films should get a bigger opening and earn a lot of money because it is good for our film industry. Yes, it is less but it is not a bad opening at all, it is a damn good opening considering the present situation of our country," Salman Said.
