Anushka Sharma’s horror flick, Pari has polarizing reviews, with some calling it a fresh, and horrifying entry into the genre that is going to reinvigorated it, while others have called it a chaotic mess. However, it has been better received by the audiences, as it was evident from the Box office collections on Saturday, as it made Rs 6 crore on day two, thus making the total to Rs 10 crores. The movie is being shown in 1,400 screens in India and has seriously benefited from the word of mouth by the audiences. Apart from the fright fest, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety has been performing exceptionally well in the theaters, and has been able to achieve Rs 51.77 crores in India.
Pari has already made all of its production money through television rights, song rights etc, so all this is certainly a profit. People have been praising Anushka’s desire to produce diverse content that we don’t usually see in Indian Cinema. And this is surely going to give her enough confidence to make more products that are as interesting for the audiences.
It should be noted that Pari has been banned in Pakistan because of allegedly showing sexual relationship between a Jinn and a girl, and promoting anti muslim sentiment. The horror flick didn’t have any kind of promotion on television except the release of various scary teasers, and it has helped the film in gaining the curiosity of the audiences sho want to know about the movie.
