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 after preview show on Thursday where film collected 1.5 cr nett. Bad reviews are hurting the film and it has started slowly with 15% opening at best.
Film was expected to do big numbers but it managed 4.5 cr nett which is either good nor bad. It’s strictly average considering so much hype around the film marketing but then it’s not bad either considering so much negative reviews on day one.
Film collected 4.25 cr nett in Hindi and mass centers in north seems to be unaffected with bad reviews. Still film didn’t grow and dropped on Saturday which is a bad sign.
Thursday (preview only)
1.50 cr nett
4.50 cr nett
4.25 cr nett
Total 10.25 cr nett
India Pakistan match will limit its growth today. Anything around 6 cr nett with 25% plus growth would meant good road ahead but now bumpy ride seems in offering.
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.
