Samrat Prithviraj Box Office Collection Day 4
According to Box Office India, "Samrat Prithviraj has seen a drop in collections on day four as it collects around the 5 crore nett which is over 50% down from the first day. There is a better hold in circuits where it was doing better over the weekend but other places are seeing falls in the 55-60% range. It could have decent final figures in the likes of Rajasthan and CI but it wont change the overall picture."

"This will take the film to around 44 crore nett in five days and the week will be around 56 crore nett which is not really good enough and the hold had to better on Monday and more towards a 30% drop," BOI stated.
