Yogi Adityanath watches Tejas
After the screening, Kangana stepped out of the auditorium and interacted with the media. She said that Adityanath was in tears when he watched the film.
"He assured us that he will protect us and our film from all our enemies and anti-national elements and motivate the nationalists to watch and connect with it," she added.
She went on to say that Tejas is not just a film about women empowerment but it is the story of women power.

The film, which released on October 27, has so far earned Rs 4.25 crore at the ticket windows.
Post the film's failure, Kangana took to her social media handles to urge the audience to watch films in theatres with their loved ones. She said that it was important for people to go to theatres to help them survive.
