Day 2: Anushka Sharma’s Pari Steady at the Box Office

Anushka Sharma’s Pari has had a steady opening at the box office. The day 2 collections of the supernatural thriller are around 6 Crores. The film had opened with collections of Rs 4.21 Crores on its opening day. If word-of-mouth publicity is anything to go by, Pari might see a steady rise on Sunday and the next weekend as well.

According to the trade analysts, the slow opening of the film might be attributed to the fact that many theatres across India remain closed on Holi, with some screening for evening shows only. The release of the film on Holi might not have favoured the film very well, in spite of the extended weekend. However, since the film has received positive reviews and helmed for its content, Pari might go big in the coming days. Also, the fact that no big releases are expected this Friday, might work to the film’s advantage.

Shot widely in Bengal, Pari has done well in the eastern capital. Early estimates show that the film had a good opening with solid occupancy in most theatres. Maharashtra and the northern region are expected to pick up the pace soon as viewers begin to spread positive words about the film.

It is a big risk in Bollywood to make a horror flick since most people are averse to watching scary movies and have low expectations from Bollywood. For years, the genre has failed to get the sort of acclaim and respect it has been getting from Hollywood and other international cinemas. Anushka Sharma has been appreciated for being a risk taker, as a producer, and opting to choose a supernatural film as opposed to romance or crime thriller most production houses indulge in.

The only competition Pari has is from Sonu ke Titu ki Sweety which has performed exceptionally well at the box office with Rs 5.83 Crores on the second weekend. Fingers are still crossed for Pari’s success at the box office.
