According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Pari raked in a total of Rs 4.36 crore on its opening day despite some theaters being shut due to Holi  celebrations and with the film not having released in some south markets. Adarsh took to his Twitter profile to share these updates.

Prior to Pari's release, Anushka and the film's team released seven short 'screamers' in order to build the audience's anticipation and feed their curiosity.

Pari, starring Anushka, Rajat Kapoor and Ritabhari Chakraborty, is co-produced by Anushka and her brother Karnesh Sharma's Clean Slate Films, KriArj Entertainment and Kyta Productions. The film has been directed by Prosit Roy.

Pari is Anushka's third film as a producer with Clean Slate Films having previously backed NH10 and Phillauri.
