Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday starrer Liger released in theatres on Thursday after a massive promotional campaign all across the country. Vijay’s Hindi debut was excessively hyped but if early reports of the film’s box office collection are any indication, the film has fallen to the curse that is upon the Bollywood box office at the moment. The film opened to largely negative reviews, even starting meme trends.
Film got a very wide release in Hindi today after preview shows last night where film collected 1.5 cr nett. Bad reviews are hurting the film and it has started slowly with 15% opening at best.
Day one was pegged in Hindi around 5 cr nett minimum and at the moment that looks difficult. As per early trends, film should collect around 2.75 -3 cr nett.
Evening shows hold the key!
Thursday (preview only)
1.50 cr nett
2.75 cr nett (expected)
Along side Vijay Deverekonda & Ananya Pandey starring Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy and Mike Tyson, Liger was in making for three years after facing many delays due to the pandemic. The ‘boycott’ trend around the film emerged last week after Vijay spoke in favour of Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha.
