Vijay Deverakonda’s film “Liger” has turned out to be a big disappointment at the box office, it was expected from the sports film that it would continue the winning streak of TFI (Telugu Film Industry). But now it seems it will be pulled from the theatres within a week suffering over 50 crore loss.
After opening on a decent note at the box office despite negative reviews, the film saw a major decline in its collections on the 2nd day itself and from there it couldn’t revive. In the four-day extended weekend, it has reached the vicinity of 50 crores at the worldwide box office with 24-25 crore shares.
The worldwide theatrical rights of the film were sold at 90 crores and it still needs to recover around Rs 65 crores, as per the trade reports. Day-wise box office collections (WW) below:
Box Office Collection Worldwide
Day 1: Rs 24.30 Cr gross (Rs 13.45 Cr shares)
Day 2: Rs 9.20 Cr gross (Rs 4.06 Cr shares)
Day 3: Rs 9 Cr gross (Rs 3.75 Cr shares)
Day 4: Rs 8.5 Cr gross ( Rs 3.15 Cr shares)
The film couldn’t show jump on Sunday either, it was more or less flat on Day 4 as well due to the big IND Vs PAK cricket match. The trend in occupancy was also flat with the decline in night shows. Liger had 15.94% overall Telugu Occupancy and 9.66% Hindi occupancy on Sunday, as per Sacnilk.com
Box Office Collection Day 5
Vijay’s film now has become an affair of few days from here, the first Monday collections will be negligible considering no interest among the audience in the film. It has turned out to be a huge disappointment in terms of loss. It is the second big disaster after Acharya in Telugu this year.
It has already become a flop affair in Telugu, it was only because of the Hindi release the movie stays steady during the weekend albeit on the lower side, lest it would tanked on the second day itself. However, the film showed a free fall drop on the first weekday, across the board. With this, it has now become an affair of few days.
