Liger had a poor opening weekend at the box office, collecting just Rs. 46 crores in its four days extended the first weekend. The Vijay Deverakonda starrer had a decent opening day, but due to negative audience reception, the film faced a big crash on its second day and then never really recovered over the weekend. The situation for the film was so bad that it was trailing behind Karthikeya 2 in Andhra Pradesh on Saturday and Sunday, which is in its third week. There will be another big crash today, the film will likely wrap up inside Rs. 50 crores in its first seven days. It won't be adding much from there on and will likely close under Rs. 60 crores for lifetime box office number.

The box office collections of Liger at the Indian box office are as follows:

Thursday - Rs. 19 crores

Friday - Rs. 9.75 crores

Saturday - Rs. 8.75 crores

Sunday - Rs. 8.50 crores

Total - Rs. 46 crores

Liger is a huge DISASTER for its investors in AP/TS, with an abysmal Rs. 12.50 crores share collected in four days. The theatrical rights of the film fetched Rs. 55 crores in the Telugu states, for which distributors stand to incur losses of more than Rs. 40 crores.

The territorial breakdown for box office collections of Liger is as follows:

Nizam - Rs. 12.25 crores (Rs. 5.85 crores share)

Ceeded - Rs. 3.15 crores (Rs. 1.70 crores share)

Andhra - Rs. 9.35 crores (Rs. 4.95 crores share)

AP/TS - Rs. 24.75 crores (Rs. 12.50 crores share) 

Karnataka - Rs. 2.85 crores (Rs. 1.25 crores share)

Tamil Nadu - Rs. 2.40 crore (Rs. 95 lakhs share)

Vijay put so much hard work into this film!! I hope people appreciate it!! Actors put their heart and soul into the films they make. It's soul wrenching!! Please think about it before you criticize them. Don't blame actors when the movies don't make a lot of money.

I don't see the writers and directors being blamed. Only the poor actors who rely on a good script

VD should understand first why people boycotted the movies, they are not trolls they are public because of whom these actors get their bread & butter & all the fame. Vijay is good at heart, he is not someone who disrespects anybody, I think it was his stress & emotions that made him say what he said because he worked super hard to get where he is now & whenhe started hearing that talks of boycott was happening he didn’t understand what mistake he has done to be boycotted but he should have understand that people were boycotting because of Karan Johar I guess. VD just be careful when you speak, country & its security is always above films & Amir was boycotted because he is anti Hindu, make fun of Hindu faith only & so on, do some research before coming to conclusion
