Box Office Collection Predictions
Earlier trade analysts were of the view that Prithviraj could rake in around Rs 30 to 35 Cr on day 1 considering on a scale the film has been made. But the advance bookings showing the different story here, it now seems would collect in the range of Rs 10.5-13 Cr on Day 1.
Uttar Pradesh’s C.M Yogi Adityanath earlier had declared the film tax-free in Uttar Pradesh and now the Madhyapradesh govt. tax-exempted the film, and other states are expected to follow suit. The tax exemption will definitely benefit Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s film and will give a boost to the film’s collection.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is already running successfully at the box office and now trade pundits are bidding on Prithviraj which could continue the Bhool Bhulaiyaa’s successful trend. However, what is your opinion about it, will Prithviraj become another big money spinner film at the box office India? do write in the comment box.
