‘Adipurush’ numbers continue downward spiral at Box Office

Om Raut's controversial big-budget flick 'Adipurush's' box office collections continued their precipitous drop. The movie has collected over INR 400 crore globally but numbers continued to fall amid controversy over the poor quality of its dialogues and visual effects.

T-Series, the studio behind the movie, yesterday tweeted that the Prabhas-starrer had earned INR 410 crore gross in six days.

'Adipurush', which was released across the country in Hindi, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil on June 16, stars Prabhas as Raghav (Ram), Kriti Sanon as Janaki (Sita) and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh (Raavan).

In the opening weekend, the film, reportedly made on a budget of INR 500 crore, raced to INR 340 crore in just three days – INR 140 crore on day one, followed by INR 100 crore each on day two and three.

But the film's box office score witnessed a drastic slide as negative word of mouth spread on social media. The film earned INR 15 crore as against INR 35 crore on Monday and INR 20 crore on Tuesday.

The big-budget multilingual saga has been panned on social media over its poor VFX and colloquial dialogues, with dialogue writer Manoj Muntashir Shukla under fire for Lord Hanuman's dialogues in the 'Lanka Dahan' sequence, among others.

'Adipurush' is now screening in theatres with altered dialogues.
