Anushka Sharma starrer Pari has released today at the box office. The movie created a lot of buzz because of its posters, screamers and trailer. Because of its superb promotional strategy, the movie has gained attention of the audience and made them curious to watch it. Let’s have a look at Pari first day collection early estimates in details.
Different Film But Similar Performance
Anushka Sharma is known for choosing different type of films and she is doing experiment with her roles. The actress’s last two releases NH 10 and Phillauri introduced her new avatars. Although this is a different horror film, she has done justice with her scary role. Anushka’s performance is better than her previous two films, NH 10 and Phillauri.
In the morning shows, the occupancy rate of the film is low. About 10% people booked their tickets as there is a Holi festival today so people are busy in celebrating and enjoying Holi. However, due to a Holiday, the occupancy rate is expected to take a jump in the evening shows.
First Day Collection Early Estimates
In India, horror films usually earn low collection at the box office and not many horror flicks had performed exceptionally well. Pari seems a different kind of horror film and the hype it has created before its release would benefit it. Pari has received better critics reviews than Phillauri. Phillauri Collections were helped by Diljit Dosanjh’s presence in Punjab. Also, there is a slight difference in the role of Anushka Sharma as she is playing an abuse victim in Pari.
Also, Pari has a big challenge in the form of the holdover release, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. SKTKS is doing really well at the box office and is likely to perform well on Holi too. So it would be interesting to see how Pari competes with it. Seeing the morning occupancy, Pari has opened low but is expected to pick its pace in the remaining shows of the day. More updates will be made available soon.
Update (Friday 4 PM) : As the Festivities of Holi calm and down, and people start going to theatres. We are seeing an increase in people at Pari Shows, but still, the performance is very poor. At most, this film can collect around Rs. 4 crores on its opening.
Final Update: Pari collected Rs. 4.36 crores on its opening day.
