Pari banned in Pakistan for promoting 'anti-Muslim sentiments'

Anushka's 'Pari' banned in Pakistan

Anushka Sharma's horror flick is certainly doing well as far as the horror genre in Bollywood is concerned but the overall performance of the film is below par. Moreover, the presence of Diljit Dosanjh had allowed the film to penetrate better in the Delhi-Punjab territories.

After box office failures like Jab Harry Met Sejal and Phillauri, Anushka Sharma no doubt is yearning for a hit. The film now stands with the grand total of Rs 15.34 crore. As soon as he landed in Mumbai, he held a special screening of Anushka's latest horror film, Pari.

The movie also stars Parambrata Chatterje, Rajat Kapoor and Ritabhari Chakraborty in significant roles.

It would be easy for the movie to grow its business if its story manages to impress and attract a big number of spectators. This film was all set to release in Pakistan as well, but got banned at the last moment. "Pari" had collected around Rs 4.75 crore and Rs 4.50 crore on its first Saturday and first Sunday respectively. It won't be a surprise if the film pockets Rs 10 crore on Sunday. It earned around 3 crores. The mouth publicity will help Pari gain in the weekend.

Veerey Ki Wedding starring Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda and Jimmy Shergill also released on the same day as Anushka Sharma's Pari. On Saturday, the movie witnessed decent growth and eared 5.47 crores. Anushka Sharma arrived in the city this morning and Virat was there to receive her at the airport. Box office competition also increases with the arrival of new films in cinema halls. In fact, it saw small drop and earned around 5.1 crores.
