A Box Office India report said that Samrat Prithviraj has scored a fair first weekend, in terms of collections. The report mentioned that the movie has managed to collect in the 15.75-16 crore nett range. With the third day, first weekend collections, the Akshay Kumar is inching closer to the 50 crore mark. The movie has collected a total of 39 crore nett plus.
According to the report, “The weekend box office of the film is around 39 crore nett plus with Sunday set to fall in the 15.75-16 crore nett range. The Sunday collections in Bihar will be the highest for any original Hindi content on any day and this is the case for single screens in many centres of UP also.” The report also stated, “Samrat Prithviraj had a fair first weekend as it did good business in parts of India but average to low business in other parts. The film was basically driven by UP, Bihar, Rajasthan and MP which all put up good numbers and were very good on Sunday which is the best day for these pockets.”
