A still from 'Adipurush'.

OM Raut’s Adipurush featuring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan in key roles has been clearly rejected by the viewers. Following massive backlash over misrepresentation of the main characters and pedestrian dialogues used in the movie, Adipurush has taken a free fall at the box office.  

According to a report on Sacnilk.com, on day 8, the film earned an estimated ₹3.25 crore net in India in all languages. With this, its domestic collection stands at ₹263.15 crore. The report also mentioned that the film had an overall 11.20% Hindi occupancy on Friday.

On Friday, Manoj Desai, the executive director of the Gaiety Galaxy cinema hall in Mumbai had confirmed viewers’ ‘s rejection. “Yesterday, two of our shows were cancelled and today, our matinee shows had to be cancelled due to poor word-of-mouth and response. This movie will be removed from theatres very soon and we didn’t think it will come to this. Not just ours, the owners of all theatres where the film has been released have suffered losses,” he told news agency ANI.

When asked if the makers amending the contentious dialogues in the face of criticism has worked in the movie’s favour, Desai said, “They have made some changes to the dialogues, but it’s too little too late. Changing dialogues in a film after release does not make sense.”

On day 7, the film earned Rs 5.5 crore in all languages in India. According per the film’s production house T-Series, the film has already crossed Rs 410 crore worldwide gross. The movie was reportedly made on a budget of Rs 500 crore.

Adipurush kicked off with huge advance bookings. During its first weekend, the film earned ₹ 340 crore net. While Pathaan could mint Rs 313 crore gross worldwide in the first weekend, the Prabhas-starrer reportedly earned Rs 340 crore.

But on its first Monday, Adipurush’s box office collection saw a dip of over 70%, which further dropped in the following days. Shockingly, the movie witnessed a drop in numbers even though the makers had slashed the ticket price to Rs 150.

Amid severe backlash, All India Cine Workers Association has reportedly written to Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Mumbai Police to demand registration of a case against producer, director and writer of movie Adipurush.

The association has also penned an open letter to PM Modi demanding a ban on the screening of Adipurush. The association believes that the film “clearly” defames the image of Lord Ram and Lord Hanuman and hurts “religious sentiments of Hindus and Sanatan Dharma”.
