Phillauri has, however, broken the opening record of Anushka's last production movie, NH10. Amid massive hype and promotion, the movie registered an occupancy of 25 per cent in around 1,000 screens across the domestic market on Friday, March 24.

Though the first day show's occupancy rate was decent, it further escalated on Saturday (March 25) due to positive reviews. While Anushka and Diljit's love story won hearts, Suraj's performance also received a positive feedback.

Anushka plays a friendly ghost named Shashi in the film, while Diljit plays the role of a singer. Phillauri has been set in two eras – one was in the year 1919 and the other in 2017. While the pre-Independence part is about the incomplete love story between Diljit and Anushka, the current times shows how Anushka meets her love.
