After seeing a dip on the first Monday, Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh‘s Phillauri maintained a decent hold on the box office on Tuesday. The movie raked in another Rs 1.95 crore on day 5, to take its total tally to Rs 19.22 crore. And we have to say that after releasing in just 1000 screens across India, this is a decent figure. Talking about the detailed breakdown of collections, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Phillauri Fri 4.02 cr, Sat 5.20 cr, Sun 6.03 cr, Mon 2.02 cr, Tue 1.95 cr. Total: Rs 19.22 cr. India biz.”

From here on, we expect the film to steadily dip throughout the week. In fact, after Taapsee Pannu and Akshay Kumar‘s Naam Shabana releases this Friday, Phillauri will drop drastically. In its lifetime run, Phillauri might end up raking in around about Rs 25-30 crore. While this isn’t a huge amount, but considering that it was made on a tight budget, the film will end up making a considerable profit.

Talking about the profits that Phillauri has already made, Vijay Singh (CEO of Fox Star Studios) mentioned, “The film is set to register a good week one and has already become a profitable film for us. We are glad that we could produce differentiated content that has found its audience.” ALSO READ – I saw Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri and found Censor Board’s censoring of Hanuman Chalisa scene simply ridiculous

While many people expected the film to be fantastic and to set the box office on fire, it could not. The critics and the audience liked the performances of all the stars, however the plot of the film did not connect with them. The lack of a positive word-of-mouth publicity dented the movie’s prospects at the box office, but it is the execution that has actually let Phillauri down. Only Diljit‘s star power in the North rescued the movie and helped it rake in the moolah. Check out what the audience had to say about the movie in the video right here:
