Anushka Sharma-Diljit Dosanjh starrer Phillauri has collected over 50 crores gross box office worldwide. A small film with a big heart, the movie has recorded steady collections since its release.
It collected 51 lacs on 2nd Monday and 53 lacs on 2nd Tuesday to take its total to 26.82 crores nett (38.31 crores GBO) in India, while in global markets Phillauri has collected $1.81m (11.77 crores). The total worldwide business now stands at 50.08 crores GBO.
The movie has become a profitable venture for Fox Star Studios and Clean Slate Films. The cost of Phillauri makes it a profitable venture, since it was made at a cost of 21 crores and has already recovered 12 crores from satellite and music rights. With only 9 crores to recover before the film release, this start of Phillauri makes the film profitable!

The film is looking around for a lifetime business of approximately 30 crores. Since there is no big release in the coming week, Phillauri will continue to add more collections to its kitty.
