Phillauri Box Office Collections: Last week’s release Bollywood film Phillauri has created a qualified buzz at the box office – it is doing adequately well. Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh-starrer that was released last Friday (March 24) opened lower than expected but the film accelerated over the weekend and on Monday the film earned Rs 2.02 crore and the current total now stands at Rs 17.27 crore! An interesting fun-filled family entertainer that released across 1200 screens is based on the two separate love stories and gives the audience a new and refreshing look at the lovable ghostly-chemistry between Anushka and Diljit. The film which is the second film from the NH10 actress’s home production, Clean Slate Films, received a good response over all. It is a budget film of around Rs 21 crore but the film has recovered Rs 12 crore from its music and satellite rights.
The film also beat the first weekend collection of Kangana Ranaut’s Tanu Weds Manu, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Sarbjit and even Vidya Balan’s Kahaani. Kangana’s Tanu Weds Manu had earned 11. 27 crore, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback film Sarbjit and Vidya Balan’s Kahaani had netted around 13.96 crore and 15 crore respectively. But Anushka won the first weekend game as Phillauri earned 15.25 crore within 3 days of its release!
While Anushka is seen playing a friendly ghost in the film, her performance has been praised a lot by the critic, on the other hand, Punjabi film sensation and Udta Punjab star Diljit Dosanjh, stole the heart of the audience with his innocence charm. With the successful collection, Phillauri director Anshai Lal was quoted as saying that having a big star in the film helps to reach a bigger audience.
