Samrat Prithviraj is a huge period drama starring Akshay Kumar and backed by YRF.
In last two days many states have it tax free status and top leaders of country have come out in open to support it.
The film still found few takers on day one with poor opening of 25-30% and needs big jump throughout the day.
The movie released in 3750 screens in India and 1200 screens overseas which is massive release.
As per early trends, film might struggle to cross 10 cr nett on day one which is massively disappointing as minimum 15 cr nett opening was needed for film of such scale.
Much hyped south film Vikram and Major are also poor in Hindi belts and need jumps throughout the day.
