Disappointing pre-booking reports
Significantly, the news was not good enough with the pre-booking announcements for Akshay Kumar’s film. By pre-booking for the first day, the film raised about 4.5 kroner. At the same time, the scope of advance booking for the second day is also said the same now. Therefore, Akshay Kumar may have to fight a lot in the coming days.
He lost the first battle with Karthik Aryan
Akshay Kumar’s first battle with Emperor Pritviraj was with Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Karthik Aryan’s film kicked off 14 crores. This is also the case when there was speculation about the opening of only 10 crores of the film. But Karthik Aryan presented surprising figures from his film. Now that Akshai Kumar has lost the opening battle against Kartik Aryan, it remains to be seen whether Emperor Pritviraj will be able to catch up over the weekend.
Disappointing even in languages
Prithviraj is also released in Tamil and Telugu along with Hindi. But the film was disappointing in both languages. In Tamil, the film won only 2 lakhs on the first day, and the same figures are for Telugu revenues. Samrat Pritviraj in Tamil confronts Vikram with Kamal Haasan, while in Telugu with Major Adivi Sesh.
Major Hindi movie figures
On the other hand, if we talk about the Hindi performance of a major film, then while Samrat Prithviraj started 20 lakhs in Telugu, the Telugu film Major, produced by Mahesh Babu, started 1 crore in Hindi. It is believed that the word of mouth of the film is so great that it will have a significant impact on the income of Hindi on weekends.
Employment with opening
Samrat Pritviraj has registered very low employment in the theater with the opening. The film recorded only 19 percent employment on Friday (June 3rd). That figure was 14 percent in the morning broadcasts and reached only 28 percent in the night broadcasts. From which it is clear that on the first day the audience completely rejected Emperor Pritviraj.
Employment 20 – 25 percent
If we talk about different cities, then everywhere the employment of Prithviraj remained around 15 – 20 percent on the first day. That figure is 25 percent in Jaipur alone, 22 percent in Delhi and 23 percent in Lucknow. At the same time, the film’s employment was close to 50 percent in 32 shows in Chennai. However, if the reports are to be believed, Samrat Pritviraj has begun to do well in smaller cities, and his influence will soon be evident in the film’s figures.
Released on about 5,000 screens
Samrat Prithviraj is one of the greatest films in Akshay Kumar’s career. The film was released on a total of 4,950 screens, with 1,200 screens abroad and the rest in India. In India, the film was released on 3,550 screens in Hindi, while in Tamil – Telugu on 200 screens.
Prithviraj is a film made on a large scale and it is estimated that the budget of the film is about 300 crores. But given the way the film made its opening at the box office, it’s very difficult to get such a huge budget at the box office. It remains to be seen how the film will perform in the coming days.
