Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh’s Phillauri has hit the screens today and while everyone expected it to open well, looks like it has not! Phillauri is off to a disappointing start as it registered only 15 per cent occupancy across India during the morning and afternoon shows. A trade source, who wanted to stay anonymous, reveals to us exclusively, “The movie has opened on a very disappointing note, not up to the mark at all. The occupancy has been 15 per cent on an average across India. Considering that the movie has got just 1000-1100 screens, the occupancy is very low.”

Earlier, our trade expert had mentioned how the movie would rake in Rs 3 crore on day one. Our trade source believes that Phillauri might be able to achieve this, but with conditions applied. As he had predicted, “In the best case scenario, the movie will earn Rs 2-3 crore on day 1, that too if the evening shows pick up.” The movie has got mixed reviews from the public as well as the critics, so we have no idea about which way will Phillauri will go from here.

Our reviewer, Sreeju Sudhakaran mentioned in his review, “Phillauri has some spirited performance from its lead actors, unfortunately, the same spirit has not gone into the making of the movie. What’s started off as a promising film ends up as a boring and a tiresome hotchpotch by the end. Going by the nearly empty theatre hall where I watched the movie and the muted response the movie received at the end, I am sure #ShashiWasThere is actually scaring people away from the screens. Highly Avoidable!” ALSO READ – Phillauri movie review: Anushka Sharma’s ghost act ends up being a tiresome experience

Apart from Phillauri, Swara Bhaskar‘s Anaarkali of Aarah also released today, but it is off to an even worse start. The movie has opened to just 5-10 per cent occupancy across India in just 500-600 screens. With that, we expect Badrinath Ki Dulhania to continue its magnificent run at the box office. But how much will Phillauri earn at the box office? Stay tuned to BollywoodLife as we get you the latest box office collection right here…
