North India has contributed 52 per cent of the total Phillauri collections. “Phillauri is a high concept film with a big heart and we are happy with the start that it has had on day one. The film has good word of mouth and it will grow today. It is a fun, family entertainer and a perfect weekend watch for audiences across all age-groups,” Producers Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios and Karnesh Sharma of Clean Slate Films said in a statement.
The film, which was made on a budget of Rs 21 crore, has recovered Rs 12 crore from satellite and music rights.
Phillauri released with Swara Bhaskar-starrer Anaarkali of Aarah and Hollywood flick Life.
Phillauri is Anushka Sharma’s second home production after NH10.
