The film which also stars Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan Khan in main roles was dominating the market in its first week as it was a solo release.

However, in second week "Highway" affected the business of "Gunday" in Indian markets.

The film should score well on second Saturday and Sunday due to weekend. The film is maintaining a steady pace at the box office and should take its overall score to 75 to 80 crore.

Despite getting mixed reviews from critics, the film's performance at box office was amazing.

The Gujarat and Saurashtra circuits contributed their best in domestic collections. Apparently, Ranveer's last film "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela" also did well in Gujarat circuit.
