With no big release alongside, “Phantom” is expected to witness growth over the weekend due to the buzz around the movie.
“Phantom”, which revolves around global terrorism, is an adaptation of the novel “Mumbai Avengers”.
At least 166 people were killed when terrorists from Pakistan sneaked into Mumbai in November 2008 and went on a killing spree.
