Anushka Sharma's second outing as a producer, Phillauri, is maintaining a strong hold at the Box Office. The movie received rave reviews from the critics and audiences and especially in North India, people are loving the friendly-ghostly encounters that are woven with a unique storyline.

Strong opening weekend

Phillauri, which stars Anushka, along with ‘Life Of Pi’ fame actor Suraj Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh and Mehreen Pirzada, took off with a decent start on the opening day. However, it witnessed constant growth over the weekend, all thanks to Diljit's popularity in North India which brought maximum footfalls to the theatres. The movie has earned INR 15.25 crore in its first weekend.

Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the break-up of Phillauri's Box Office collections. He wrote, "#Phillauri Fri 4.02 cr, Sat 5.20 cr, Sun 6.03 cr. Total: ₹ 15.25 cr. India biz."

Phillauri also opened well in the International markets, especially in UAE-GCC and made $ 260,000 [₹ 1.70 cr] on Thursday and Friday, collectively.

The movie clashed with Swara Bhaskar's ‘Anarkali of Aarah’ at the Box Office which has also received rave reviews for touching upon the social issues like gender inequality, women empowerment and depicting the existing patriarchal beliefs in the male-dominated society. While Phillauri is winning hearts, it remains to be seen if the movie manages to impress other parts of the country as well and rake in moolah in the days to come.
