Eid factor gives Salman an edge

Radhe benefitted hugely from the fact that it was an Eid release. There’s an emotional connection between fans and Bhaijaan over Eid and we don’t need to explain it further.

On the other hand, Laxmii was a regular release that arrived on 9th November but still managed to take a huge start by fetching 3.7 million views.
