Samrat Prithviraj collecting Day 9: Akshay Kumar’s concerts halted owing to empty theaters

The film Samrat Prithviraj by Akshay Kumar has become his second consecutive flop, following Bachchhan Paandey. The film has only managed to gross a meager Rs 59 crore at the domestic box office so far, despite an estimated budget of Rs 200 crore.

According to rumors, the film’s showings in various circuits are being canceled and purged due to a lack of audience interest in order to create room for other films with greater commercial viability.


Chandraprakash Dwivedi wrote and directed Samrat Prithviraj, which is based on the lives and times of Rajput emperor Prithviraj Chauhan. Audiences and critics alike were divided in their opinions. The picture had a weak start on the first day and has continued to decline since then.
