The film despite starting on the lower levels hasn’t sunk down and is moving ahead slowly and steadily.The 7th installment of DC Extended Universe has collected 21 crores till second Monday. However, the collections will not go far from here because a big Hindi film, Kalank will be releasing in cinemas tomorrow i.e. April 17.
