The film, which released on January 11, has impressed the audience and collected Rs 148.18 crore till Saturday. 

The film is based on the 2016 Indian Army`s surgical strikes in Pakistan following the attacks in Jammu and Kashmir`s Uri town.

While the numbers speak for themselves, the success of the film is evident as the film`s catchphrase 'How`s the Josh' has managed to take the internet by storm.

The trend is being followed by everybody from children to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. On Sunday, during the inauguration of third bridge on the Mandovi river in Panaji, Goa, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar began his speech with the catchphrase.
