Anushka Sharma-Diljit Dosanjh’s Phillauri has finally hit the theatres today.
Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri has been high on promotions and raised curiosity among the audience over its unique concept. The film will see Anushka Sharma as the spirit “Shashi” and the plot revolving around her story of her lost love.
The film is light-hearted laced with subtle humour which works in favour of the film’s setting.
The first in line is Phillauri which being a Punjab based film and the presence of Diljit Dosanjh opened better in Punjab.
The film had a fair opening in North collections in multiplexes of Punjab and at select multiplexes of Delhi city at 30-35%. The collections elsewhere were low.
The film has opened to a 20% range. Which is not that great. Punjab and Delhi will have to grow to sustain in the first day.
Mumbai circuit seems difficult for the film to rake in, but if the North sectors perform well, then there is a potential for a good run.
Talking about the film, Anushka is playing a friendly neighbourhood spirit in the movie. The film also stars Suraj Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh in the pivotal roles.
Directed by debutant Anshai Lal, written by Anvita Dutt and produced by Fox Star Studios and Clean Slate Films (Anushka’s production banner with brother Karnesh Sharma).
Anarkali Of Aarah and Bhanwarey too have released today. But these films will have a limited collection.
