Samrat Prithviraj Box Office Collection Day 1 Advance Bookings
Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s historical film Samrat Prithviraj has finally been released on the big screens today. The film starring Akshay Kumar in the role of the legendary king of India Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan.
Samrat Prithviraj is directed as well as written by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, Aditya Chopra produced the film under the banner Yash Raj Films. Along with Akshay, it features Sanjay Dutt, Sonu Sood, Manushi Chillar, Ashutosh Rana and Sakshi Tanwar.
Manush Chillar is making her Hindi film debut through Prithviraj, it is Akki’s widest release film and also the costliest one. Chandraprakash Dwivedi has waited for 15 yrs for this big-screen spectacle and his dream comes true today. Early reviews are showing positive responses, here we are discussing the early estimated day 1 box office collection.
The film is releasing on 4950 screens worldwide, 1200 screens in overseas and over 3750 screens in Hindi, the Tamil and Telugu screen counts are 200 collectively.
Till Thursday morning the film has sold 17000 tickets in the top multiplex chains PVR, Inox and Cinepolis, which is lower than that of Karthik’s BB2 advance sales. BB2 had sold around 45,000 tickets at the same properties on Thursday. Prithviraj’s advance bookings are less than half of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.
Earlier Uttar Pradesh C.M Yogi Adityanath had declared the film tax-free in the state, following this Madhya Pradesh govt. and now Uttarakhand govt. tax-exempted the film.
Box Office Collection Day 1
Prithviraj is estimated to see the opening of Rs 9.8 to 12.5 Cr, which is lower than Akshay’s last outing Bachchan Paandey (Rs 13.25 Cr) and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’s Rs 14.11 Cr.
Though the film performed below the expectations in advance sales, it has a low-key buzz, and the general audience’s curiosity about the film could propel its box office business. If the spot bookings do well and the film is able to attract the walk-in audience in large numbers on day 1, the film’s collections could see an increase and perform well than the estimated figures.
However, stay tuned to the page as we will be up to date on the information regarding the Samrat Prithviraj’s day 1 box office collection once the final report comes out.
