Samrat Prithviraj shows were cancelled due to zero occupancy, several media reports claim. As per the reports flowing in, the poor performance of Akshay Kumar's film at the box office has led to the cancellation of shows at various places. Bollywood Hungama reports that exhibitors were facing huge losses due to decreased footfall and hence they decided to reduce the number of shows on a daily basis. 

“The business in Mumbai city was not up to the mark even on the weekends. Hence, it was bound to have a drop on Monday. Yet, we didn’t expect show cancellations in the morning due to zero audience. Where shows didn’t cancel, the occupancy was in the single digits. The scenario is similar on Tuesday as well. The situation was similar in Kolkata and Bengaluru. Delhi was marginally better. The film has put up well in Hindi belts. However, the metros with a high density of multiplexes and higher ticket rates underperformed on the first three days and hence these theatres are performing poorly from Monday onwards,” the report quoted a source as saying.

Samrat Prthiviraj box office collection

Samrat Prithviraj had a low first week at the box office and the collections kept on dropping on the weekdays with the biggest drop on Thursday. Box Office India reports that the first week collection of the film is around Rs 55 crore nett. The film could not collect much on the weekdays after a fair weekend run of almost Rs 40 crore nett.
