Pari Box Office: Jumps Well On Saturday, Challenges Weekend Numbers Of Alone & Kahaani

After bringing in 4.36 crores on its opening day, Pari saw decent growth on Saturday. There were enhanced footfalls as 5 crores* more came in. This is fair enough for the film which was coming off a holiday and a jump like this has given it some sort of a platform to consolidate further on Sunday.

With 9.36 crore* already on, the film is now set for a 15 crore weekend at the least.

When compared to other female centric films with a dark theme (drama or horror), these are the weekend numbers that Pari would be set against:

Kahaani 2 (Vidya Balan) – 16.97 crore

Akira (Sonakshi Sinha) – 16.65 crore

Kahaani (Vidya Balan) – 15 crore

Alone (Bipasha Basu) – 15 crore

Mom (Sridevi) – 14.40 crore

Mardaani (Rani Mukerjee) – 14.34 crore

NH10 (Anushka Sharma) – 13.25 crore

This pretty much conveys that Pari is actually doing well for its genre and it won’t be surprising if it eventually finds itself amongst the Top-3 of the list. Given the fact that there is huge competition from audience friendly Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety as well which is continuing to do great guns, Pari has managed to not just hold well but also show increase in footfalls, which is a fair deal after all.

*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
