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.
Though it seems that cost of Phillauri makes it a profitable venture as the budget film was around Rs 21 crore out of which the film has recovered Rs 12 crore from its music and satellite rights. Only Rs 9 crore was left for the film to recover before its release and after the collection statistic, it clears Phillauri boosted its profitability.
