You might have observed a series of mythological films tasted success at the box office in the recent past, but it’s not looking possible with Akshay Kumar’s Samrat Prithviraj.
As it’s a big budget film, everybody expected it to make a huge business at the box office. But the Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s directorial seems to have been struggling in the middle.
It looks quite evident as the film failed to achieve the figure of 50 crore in the weekend just ended. Most experts believed that Prithviraj would at least surpass the initial milestone of Rs 50 crore by the end of this weekend.
But to everybody’s surprise, the film couldn’t manage the pass even the half mark. The film is made on a huge budget of Rs 250 crore though.
Prithviraj is directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi which is basically a historical drama. It revolves around the character of Prithviraj Raso that narrates the life and achievements of Prithviraj Chauhan.
The film stars Sakshi Tanwar, Ashutosh Rana, Manav Vij, Sonu Sood, Sanjay Dutt, Manushi Chhillar, and Akshay Kumar in their respective pivotal roles.

The failure of Prithviraj sees no reason except the fact that there might be some lack of efforts from the makers to promote it wisely. Also, the film didn’t clash with any other film as well. So, there is no room for any kind of fake stories explaining reasons of its failure.
Looking at the film’s business on weekend, it performed fairly well, but on Monday, the collections dropped steadily. On Monday, Prithviraj collected a mere Rs 5 crore at the box office.
The overall collection of Prithviraj now stands at Rs 44 crore. While if you compare Prithviraj with Kartik Aryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 (May 20), the film is still entertaining the audience. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has already surpassed the Rs 150 crore mark and is moving steadily.
The Akshay Kumar’s starrer collected Rs 10.75 (Friday), Rs 12.50 crore (Saturday), and Rs 16.10 crore (Sunday).
Comparing the box office collection of Akshay’s starrer with Vikram, the film has already surpassed Rs 175 crore mark in a span of just 4 days.
