Footfall for Adipurush dips over the week
Though Adipurush opened to record-breaking numbers in India and across the world on its opening weekend, the earnings of the film took a hit over the following week. Negative word-of-mouth and backlash over some dialogues have affected the film’s business. In spite of the criticism though, Adipurush has crossed the Rs 400 crore benchmark at the worldwide box office.
As per PTI, breakdown of official numbers show that figures on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are significantly lower than what the film made on its opening weekend: Rs 140 crore on day one, followed by Rs 100 crore each on day two and three. In contrast, it earned Rs 35 crore on Monday and Rs 20 crore (gross figures) on Tuesday. The collection on Wednesday was also in the same range.

The makers shared that in six days, gross earnings stand at Rs 410 crore globally. Though the film has not performed as expected, it will still do more business before new titles hit big screens in the upcoming weeks. Adipurush stars Prabhas as Raghav (Ram), Kriti Sanon as Janaki (Sita) and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh (Raavan).
Meanwhile, Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali Khan’s film picks up pace
Meanwhile, Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali Khan starrer Zara Hatke Zara Bachke have been doing steady business at the box office since its release on June 2. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh estimated that ZHZB could very well do a lifetime biz of Rs 80 crore. The film seems to have received a new lease of life in the absence of other comparable options for movie goers.
