As per reports, Samrat Prithviraj has seen a massive drop in occupancy over morning shows on its first Monday. In fact, it is being said that the film saw occupancy pegged at just 9% with certain locations also reporting that shows of the film have been cancelled due to no audience. In locations like Akola [Miraj], Raigad [Carnival], Prayagraj [Starworld], Punjab and Satara, theatres have been reporting lack of bookings leading to cancellation of shows.
