Anushka Sharma’s Pari has not had a great opening at the box office
Pari co-producer Prernaa Arora stunned by film’s ban in PakistanVirat Kohli’s verdict on Anushka Sharma’s Pari: My wife’s best work everPari box office collection day 1: Anushka Sharma film mints Rs 4.21 croreAnushka Sharma’s latest movie Pari has not had a particularly great start at the box office. Despite its uniqueness and all the promotion, Pari has not had a superb opening at the box office, which in turn must be hard for Anushka, who has also produced the film. Today it has opened with 100 percent occupancy in some the singles screens (Priya, Menoka, Star) as well as multiplexes (Inox, Pvr, Cinepolis, Carnival). So the film’s business in these crucial territories will only emerge over the weekend”. I am really hopeful that the numbers will be great and at the box office it will be one of the biggest hits of 2018,” says West Bengal distributor Satadeep Saha of SSR Cinemas Pvt Ltd. Rajasthan begins only after 4 pm. But all might not be over for Pari as the film has done well in the West Bengal region, and is supposed to pick up the pace during weekend in the Maharashtra region. Literally, I had a feeling before the release that it will do well in West Bengal as the maximum shooting was done here. Directed by Prosit Roy, the film also features Parambrata Chatterjee and Rajat Kapoor in pivotal roles. We had opened wide releasing in 118 theatres across Bengal which is a good number for a movie like this. And it looks like to release the movie on a festival like Holi has backfired for the makers as Sanjay Chatar, leading distributor for Central India, says, “Major cinema halls in MP and Chattisgarh areas don’t play movies on the Holi in the morning; if they begin operations they start off only at 6 pm. The supernatural horror flick earned Rs 4.21 crore on its opening day.
