Liger roars at the box office, leaving Aamir-Akshay behind on the first day
Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Pandey’s film ‘Liger‘ has been released in theaters on Thursday. Directed by Puri Jagannath, this film is a combination of South Indian film industry and Bollywood. In such a situation, it was expected that this film would bring a lot of light to the ticket windows lying vacant at the box office. But alas, on the opening day, this film could not show the amazing which was expected.
Originally made in Telugu, ‘Ligar’ has also been released in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada across the country. While abroad it has also been released in English. In this way, the film, released in a total of six languages, has done a business of Rs 33.12 crore worldwide on the first day. The film’s highest grossing has come from Telugu. Whereas in Hindi its condition is bad.
Liger is produced under the banner of Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. This is the reason why users who are upset with Karan Johar on social media are demanding boycott of this film. The way Hindi films have been getting beaten back to back for the last 8 months, it was expected that the audience angry with Bollywood and appreciating South would join this film. But the film did not get a very good response.
The story and screenplay of the film is being said to be very weak and this is the reason why there was a little crowd in the morning shows on Thursday, but the audience disappeared from the theaters as the day progressed. The film may have earned Rs 33.12 crore worldwide, but it has done a business of only Rs 19 crore in 5 languages in the country.
15 crores in Telugu on the first day, only 1.3 crores in Hindi
On the first day, ‘Liger’ has earned the highest amount of around Rs 15 crore from the Telugu version. A large number of spectators reached theaters in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana to see the film. Whereas in other languages the condition of the film is not very good. Vijay Deverakonda’s acting in ‘Liger’ is being praised.
‘Arjun Reddy’ fame actor’s film’s first day’s earnings have one more blunder. Actually, this film in Hindi was not released on Thursday morning. Shows were kept for the Hindi audience from noon onwards. These were paid previews. Whereas on Friday, the film has been released for the Hindi audience. ‘Liger’ has earned Rs 1.3 crore from the Hindi version on Thursday.
