The Ghost Box Office AP-TG

Earlier, it was expected that the Ghost will collect around Rs 8 crores from the two Telugu states on its first day but much to the trade experts’ surprise, the film took a very poor start at the box office.

Box Office Collection Day 2

Going by the trade reports, The Ghost sees a drop on day 2 due to the working day, it collects 1.75 crores gross on Thu to take its worldwide total to Rs 6.30 crores+ gross.

Talking about the box office of The Ghost, it needs a strong hold over the coming days in its extended weekend. The good thing is, it needs to recover only 18.64 crores of distributor’s shares to emerge as a hit which is possible to complete if it stays steady over the weekend following the good hold on the weekdays.

Clash with Godfather affected its BOC

The Ghost faced stiff competition with Chiranjeevi’s Godfather, which opened with double-digit figures in AP-TG. Godfather was released in 700 theatres in Telugu states whereas Nagarjuna starrer could occupy only 400 theatres. Chiranjeevi starrer became the top choice for moviegoers on the occasion of Dussehra. The business of the latter film is expected to grow on Sat and Sun.

On the other, The Ghost looks like has struggled in front of Godfather as it hasn’t managed to create the hype surrounding it like Godfather has created. The latter is riding on Positive WOM whereas Nagarjuna’s failed to do so.
