As per trade experts, 'Main Atal Hoon' is a word-of-mouth movie. 'Producer and film business expert, Girish Johar had recently told Outlook India, 'We have seen films like Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway and 12th Fail did well due to word-of-mouth. So, if Main Atal Hoon is appreciated by people, it will run well but definitely it will rely on word-of-mouth''.

Earlier, while talking about his role, Tripathi told the media, "We have tried to showcase those moments of his life in the film which are not known to the public and which are not available on any public platform. I have read so much about him that I can write a book on him and it will be bigger than this film. I have seen all his interviews, read so much about him that I have understood his persona."

He also predicted that the film would earn around Rs 1-1.5 crore at the box office.
