Taking to his Twitter account on Saturday, he put out a series of tweets calling out these 'false and negative' reports and even informed that his company has earned Rs. 8.18 crore in net collections from Ayan Mukerji's directorial magnum opus that is running in theaters in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.

In his tweet on Saturday, September 10, Kamal wrote, "It amazes me, the false and negative info about @BrahmastraFilm on the internet and in the media. Is it a lack of understanding or is it intentionally designed to cast doubts? Just so we don't miss crucial FACTS, I can confirm that @-PVRCinemas did 8.18 cr Net BO for #Brahmastra on day 1. To put this in context, some of the recent super hits recorded at #PVR day 1, Soorya Vanshi - 5.08 cr, Gangubai - 2.48 cr, RRR - 8.64 cr, KGF 2 - 11.95 cr, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 - 3.26 cr."

He further talked about the advance booking and the positive feedback that Brahmastra is receiving as he tweeted, "The way advances are today (Saturday), @-PVRCinemas would easily cross 9 cr NBOC and 10 cr NBOC on day 3/ Sunday. When a film grows further from a record-setting day 1 number the simple takeaway is that the paying audiences are enjoying the film and spreading the positive word about it. #PVR is having a fabulous weekend which is so encouraging given the massive lineup of films over the next 3 months."

"Not such good news for @BrahmastraFilmdoubters! Happy to confirm, @-PVRCinemas collected 9.64 cr Net BO on day 2 vs. 8.18 cr day 1, a jump of 18%, all trends pointing to a very LONG RUN for #Brahmastra at the box office!!", wrote Kamal on the morning of Sunday, September 11.

Meanwhile, Brahmastra has earned gross collections of Rs 160 crore worldwide from its two days of release and net collections of Rs 71 crore from India, including only the Hindi version. The film, bankrolled by Star Studios and Dharma Productions, continues to create records at the box office.
