On the other hand, Oscar-nominated director Ashutosh Gowariker's latest release Panipat, which minted Rs 4.12 crore on day 1 at the box office, has failed to impress the audience. The period drama stars Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Kriti Sanon and Zeenat Aman. The film is based on the third battle of Panipat that was fought between the Marathas and Ahmad Shah Abdali, the Afghan emperor, in 1761. 

On day 5, the film minted Rs 2.21 crore, taking the total collections till now to Rs 22.48 crore. 

Both the films released on December 6.
