Liger Box Office Report
Vijay Deverakonda starrer has been doing good business in the local Telugu market. In Hindi, it has been performing below par, with Rs 10 crore collections in three days, including Thursday's limited preview shows.
Liger has done better in Maharashtra, Bihar and Odisha. According to Box Office India, "The film was never likely to grow as it had a huge ratio of business coming from places like Maharashtra, Bihar and Odisha and these places dont go up on Saturday unless collections on day one are very bad and on top the reports are not good. On top there were paid previews on Thursday so eventually the film has done pretty well not to have a major drop on day two.
The film is likely to be affected by the cricket match on Sunday but the bigger problem is the reports of the film which will come into play on Monday and on best case it will be probably be a 50% drop when the film needs to hold much better as the weekend is going to underperform," BOI added.
