Directed by Anshai Lal, ‘Phillauri’ is a supernatural drama film which released on 24th March. Starring Anushka Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma in the lead roles, Phillauri didn’t see a great number of audience and hence made a neat box office collection of Rs. 4 Crore approx on the first day.
But, as the weekend went on, it is showing a steady growth in the collections and has reached at Rs. 15.25 Crore. Despite a super-heavy promotion, Phillauri could rope-in only a few audience. But things might change after seeing a positive growth. Also, as per the reports, Phillauri has already bypassed the cost of production through satellites and music rights by collecting a total of Rs. 12 Crore.
