Adarsh also revealed that a section of the film industry wasn’t very confident about the movie working well in China, but the numbers have proved all of them wrong.
Boxoffice can be most unpredictable, but that’s the beauty of this business... A section of the industry wasn’t too confident of #ToiletEkPremKatha striking a chord in China due to the issue it raises... Well, all speculations / calculations have proven wrong... #TEPK #ToiletHero— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) June 10, 2018
