Day 1 box office results for Adipurush show it had the largest opening of the year, grossing Rs 133 crore globally.
Adipurush, starring Prabhas, Saif Ali Khan, and Kriti Sanon, may have gotten mixed reviews from critics. Still, based on its opening day box office earnings, the public appears unconcerned. Early estimates indicate that the Om Raut made an amazing Rs 95 crores on its first day of domestic sales.
The magnum opus has made the most money from the Telugu market, with a projected collection of Rs 58.5 crore, according to industry tracker Sacnilk. The Hindi version earned 35 crore rupees, while the Tamil and Malayalam versions made 70 lakh and 40 lakh rupees.
The film’s producer and financial analyst, Girish Johar, estimated that the overseas market contributed about 35 crore rupees to the overall first-day worldwide revenue of 133 crore rupees.

According to BoxOfficeIndia.com, “The final overseas numbers are still to come, but a Rs 140 crore worldwide day one is there for the film, and this number can go to Rs 150 crore when all the collections are rounded up on Saturday.”
Pathaan, the highest-grossing movie of 2023 to date, debuted with a worldwide gross of Rs. 106 crores. The Shah Rukh Khan movie brought in Rs 1000 crore for its full run.
The Ramayana-inspired movie has drawn some criticism for the dialogue and special effects.

The movie also features Devdatta Nage and Sunny Singh.
