Phillauri is Anushka’s second film as a producer after 2015’s NH10. Directed by debutante director Anshai Lal, the supernatural drama also stars Suraj Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh and Mehreen Pirzada, apart from Anushka. Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh‘s Phillauri maintained a decent hold on the box office on Tuesday.
The film collected Rs 1.75 crore on its first Tuesday (Day 5) taking its total to Rs 19.22 crore at the box office. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Phillauri Fri 4.02 cr, Sat 5.20 cr, Sun 6.03 cr, Mon 2.02 cr, Tue 1.95 cr. Total: Rs 19.22 cr. India biz.”
Since Phillauri is set in Punjab and is sprinkled with rustic humour, the film is doing very well in the North. Diljit’s popularity (he is a superstar in Punjab) is also helping Phillauri make money in those parts.
