‘Brothers’, the action-drama has defeated the first week collection of films like ‘ABCD 2’, ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ and ‘Gabbar is Back’.

A few days back Sidharth Malhotra was quoted as saying, “Collection is an indication that people are watching your film and they want to see your film. If the collection increases, it encourages actors to perform even better”.

Karan Malhotra is happy with the film’s performance. He said, “We worked really hard for ‘Brothers’. We were very tensed from the past two to three days thinking about how our film would perform. We are really happy to see the response and it’s a big relief for the whole team”. 

Produced by Dharma Productions, the movie also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Jackie Shroff in pivotal roles.
