It has been almost a week since two major films entered the box office market. While the Kartik Aryan starring Pati Patni Aur Woh has done well for itself the same cannot be said for Ashutosh Gowariker's Panipat.
Panipat saw a decline in collections particularly after Sunday. The film made a minor Rs. 2.59 crores on Monday and then Rs. 2.5 crores on Tuesday. The film is currently at a gross total of Rs. 23 crores. The film will soon cross the Rs. 25 crores mark but it's still not enough to cover for its budget. The film was made for a budget of well over Rs 100 crores.
Panipat tells the story of the third battle of Panipat. Despite being a story that almost every Indian knows the film hasn't been able to do well. The film has also suffered a loss in the number of screens in Rajasthan. The Jat population in Rajasthan has taken offense to the film's portrayal of their past ruler Maharaja Surajmal. Most theatres have already stopped showing Panipat in Rajasthan because of this.
