MUMBAI: Prabhas and Kriti Sanon starrer Adipurush has taken the box office by storm, selling an astounding 18.5 lakh tickets during its first weekend at PVR-INOX cinemas across India.

Despite facing controversies and criticism, the epic film directed by Om Raut has emerged as a powerhouse, grossing an impressive ₹340 crore worldwide – surpassed expectations to breach the record set by Pathaan earlier this year.

Released on June 16, the movie’s performance has been particularly noteworthy in India, where it earned over ₹65 crores net.

Expressing delight at the overwhelming response to Adipurush, PVR-INOX executive director Sanjeev Kumar Bijli said, “We are delighted with the massive response received for Adipurush over its first weekend, with more than 18.5 lakh tickets sold at PVR INOX cinemas across the country, which is extremely heartening to see.
