Adipurush box office collection day 5: Game over for Prabhas-starrer as Ramayana adaptation goes on free fall, approaches Rs 400 crore mark
Adipurush box office collection day 5: The film's poor collections have sealed its fate, as it might now struggle to cross the lifetime Hindi total of even Ranbir Kapoor's Tu Jhooti Main Makkaar.
Filmmaker Om Raut’s big-scale Ramayana adaptation Adipurush plummeted further on Tuesday at the Indian box office, signaling game over for the epic in less than a week. The film, featuring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan, recorded historic weekend grosses, but also witnessed a shocking drop of 75 percent on Monday and a further dip on Tuesday.
On its first Tuesday, the film recorded a mere Rs 10 cr all India nett (including all languages), with its Hindi share reported to be in the range of Rs 5-6 cr. According to industry tracker Sacnilk, Adipurush minted Rs 10.80 cr across all languages. Its Hindi occupancy was around 11.16 percent. On Tuesday, T-Series claimed that the movie had grossed Rs 375 crore worldwide.
The film’s worldwide figures were low as well. After the first day gross haul of Rs 140 cr globally, film industry tracker Manobala Vijayabalan reported that Adipurush clocked Rs 17.93 cr on Tuesday. The film’s poor collections, less than Rs 120 cr Hindi nett, has sealed its fate. Adipurush was reportedly produced for a reported budget of over Rs 500 crore, and is yet to cross the Rs 400 crore gross worldwide.
While Adipurush has crossed Salman Khan’s Eid release Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan (which minted just about Rs 100 cr and bombed), the T-Series film will now struggle to surpass the studio’s own co-production Tu Jhooti Main Makkaar. The Ranbir Kapoor -Shraddha Kapoor starrer rom-com had minted Rs 149 cr in March.
Adipurush ran into national controversy from the day of its release due to dialogues penned by Manoj Muntashir, which many dubbed as “pedestrian language” for a story considered by many to be devine. The makers on Sunday decided to alter the dialogues and roll out a fresh version of the film in a “few days”.
It remains to be seen if the revamped version of Adipurush makes any impact at the box office, as the film was also slammed for its VFX and poor character design– something which the makers anyway spent months working on after the movie was first trolled last October, prompting them to push the film from its original January release date.
