Phillauri has crossed the 20 crore mark on its 1st Wednesday. It brought in 1.81 crore on 6th day to make its total collections of 21.03 crore.
Considering this is the 1st week of the film, these are not impressive numbers. The movie is also not showing a good occupancy in theaters and more than 50% of its earnings are coming from Punjab. So, rest of the country has not shown much interest to watch the film.
Phillauri will collect 22 crore by the end of its 1st week but after that its slow pace earning won’t be alive as Taapsee Pannu-Akshay Kumar’s Naam Shabana is hitting the theaters which will grab most of the screens.
The concern for Phillauri is that it is not finding audience to get good footfalls. In fact, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, which released on 10th March (currently in 3rd week), is collecting more than Philauri.
This Anshai Lal directorial has got good to average reviews and the performance of Anushka-Diljit Dosanjh is also applauded. The film is looking like a 1 week affair after which it won’t be having much screens left. Phillauri also stars Suraj Sharma and Mehreen Pirzada.
