Fighter Suffered Due To Mid Week Release And Gulf Ban

If released there, it might have added around USD 250K to its earnings.

Australia had a big opening day of AUD 270K, aided by the Australia Day holiday on 26th January. Norway contributed an impressive USD 20K, comparable to bigger films like Jawan and Pathaan.
