Will Pari beat NH10 and Phillauri to become Anushka Sharma’s BIGGEST solo opener?


After enjoying a dream debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Aditya Chopra’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Anushka Sharma played many bubbly characters in films like Band Baaja Baaraat, Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl, Badmaash Company and Jab Tak Hai Jaan (Interestingly, all YRF films). But in the last few years, the actress has made some unconventional film choices like Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, NH10, and Phillauri. In fact, her upcoming release Pari is one of the riskiest projects of Anushka’s life.

During the launch of Clean Slate Films, Anushka had said that she’ll explore various genres through her banner and it seems like she is completely justifying her statement by making some noteworthy choices. Just like NH10 and Phillauri, Pari has been bankrolled by her production house and the actress is carrying the project on her shoulders. Talking about NH10, the thriller had collected Rs 3.35 crore on its first day and earned Rs 32.39 crore during its theatrical run. On the other hand, Phillauri had enjoyed the opening of Rs 4.02 crore and registered a lifetime business of  Rs 27.10 crore.

Coming back to Pari – right from posters, trailers to screamers, the film has managed to impress the audience and they are now waiting to catch this haunting story on the silver screen. Since the film is releasing on Holi, which is a holiday, we are expecting the film to open above Rs 5 crore on its first day. Though the film will be heavily dependent on a strong word-of-mouth, since Pari is made on a well-controlled budget, it can easily turn out to be a profitable venture for its makers.
