Akshay Kumar-starrer Samrat Prithviraj continues its downward trend. The period drama is struggling to impress the audience. The film registered a sharp drop at the box office on Day 7. After witnessing a rather slow start on its opening day, with a Rs 10.70 crore opening, the business picked up on Saturday and Sunday. However, on weekdays the film couldn't earn big at the ticket windows and, thus, managed to mint just Rs 55.50 crore till now, according to early estimates. Reportedly, the morning shows of the film are being cut down as it saw occupancy in single digits.
