After Bachchhan Paandey, Akshay Kumar has returned to the big screen with Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s Samrat Prithviraj.

The film marks the Bollywood debut of Miss World 2017 Manushi Chillar.

Samrat Prithviraj hit the screens today marking a box office clash with Kamal Haasan’s Vikram and Major.

Akshay Kumar starrer is receiving mixed responses from its fans and critics. A section of the media continues to laud the film.

As per the early trends flowing in Akshay Kumar’s Samrat Prithviraj is  expected to have smaller earnings as of his last released film Bachchhan  Paandey.

The film has reportedly made earnings of 13-14 crores.Bachchhan Paandey collected 13.25 crores on the first day of its release.

Well, such numbers don’t seem enough for an Akshay Kumar starter as fans always have higher expectations.

Coming back, we hope Samrat Prithviraj continues to stay and grow at the  box office and doesn’t follow Bachchhan Paandey’s footsteps.
