The movie opened to an abysmal Rs 10.70 crore, followed by a 17 percent jump (Rs 12.60 crore) on its second day, which makes its total collection Rs 23.30 crore.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh writes that Samrat Prithviraj is not the popular choice in the metros which usually provide a big chunk of revenue. However, it's still witnessing some footfall in mass circuits.
For a movie made on a Rs 300 crore budget and released across 3750 screens in three languages, Samrat Prithviraj is yet to garner healthy enough returns for the producers.
Here is the box office break up:
Box Office India notes that the movie's two-day performance is similar to that of Alia Bhatt's Gangubai Kathiawadi. The outlet also notes that Sunday can be promising for the historical drama, especially from the Hindi speaking belts.
Samrat Prithviraj, written and directed by Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi, is about the fearless titular rules who once fought the Muhammed of Ghor. The movie also stars Manushi Chhillar, Sanjay Dutt, Sonu Sood, Manav Vij, Sakshi Tanwar and Ashutosh Rana in pivotal roles.
It is among the newest roster of movies by Yash Raj Films including the previously released Jayeshbhai Jordaar and Shah Rukh Khan's return-from-hiatus feature Pathaan.
