Pari is said to be one of the finest horrors films ever made in Bollywood. The film has got praises from the critics as well as the audience but unfortunately, it has failed to attract an audience to the cinema hall. A tough competition from the film Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is said to be the reason for the average performance of Pari on the box-office despite being excellent on content.
Anushka Sharma and Parambrata Chatterjee starrer Pari had an average opening week at the domestic market. It earned Rs 1.67 crore yesterday on the Box-Office and now stands with the grand total of Rs 22.75 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the collections on his Twitter account, “#Pari Fri 4.36 cr, Sat 5.47 cr, Sun 5.51 cr, Mon 2.14 cr, Tue 1.87 cr, Wed 1.73 cr, Thu 1.67 cr. Total: ₹ 22.75 cr. India biz.”

Despite not performing as per the expectations, Pari has turned out to be a profitable venture for its makers due to its budget of Rs 18 crore including promotion and advertising. The film had already recovered Rs 10 crore through its satellite and other rights.
Since three Bollywood films namely Hate Story IV, Dil Juunglee and 3 Storeys have released today, Pari has lost a few of its screens at the box office. Pari also stars Rajat Kapoor and Ritabhari Chakraborty in key roles.
Produced under the banners of Clean Slate Films and KriArj Entertainment, the film marks the Bollywood directorial debut of Bengali director Prosit Roy. Anushka will next be seen opposite Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in ZERO which is slated to release on December 21.
