The film thus set a new benchmark in the Hindi horror genre with a GenNext Bollywood A-lister headlining the act for the very first time in a film of this genre.
Says co-producer Arjun N Kapoor of KriArj Entertainment “We are extremely satisfied with the release weekend performance of PARI. Despite the truncated nature of this weekend (due to Holi festivities and the trade strike in many south markets), the film was able to hold the business, riding on good audience response after opening to rave reviews. A unique storyline, catchy atmospherics and superb performances, especially Anushka’s, made it an exciting watch. To add to it, our unique marketing strategy of building the ‘atmospheric horror’ through screamers, teasers and other on-ground activations piqued the audience interest right up to its release.”
