After taking a non-Baahubali record opening on Day 1, Pawan Kalyan's highly expected family entertainer, 'Angyaathavaasi' crashed on Day 2 itself, sending shivers across trade.
The Pawan Kalyan-starrer collected a paltry 4 Cr share with approx 7.5 Cr gross on Thursday, Day 2, and took its 2 days total share from the Telugu states to 30.24 Cr (about 45 Cr gross). The second day share is more than 80 percent lower than the first day's, 26.25 Cr approx.
The film's performance is no better outside the Telugu states either. After grossing a record 60 Cr on first day, Agnyaathavaasi added a mere 10 Cr to take its two days worldwide gross to about 70 Cr. Poor talk has visibly taken a bigger than expected toll on the overall collections.
Below is the area-wise break-up of share:
Nizam - 7,32,00,000
Ceded - 3,90,00,000
Nellore - 1,75,00,000
Guntur - 4,06,12,971
Krishna - 2,14,66,117
West - 3,82,61,965
East - 3,04,19,415
Uttharandhra - 4,20,00,000
Total 2 days AP & TS Share - 30.24 Cr (Gross - 45 Cr)
Total 2 days worldwide Share - 45 Cr (Gross - 70 Cr)
In US also, the Trivikram directorial crashed on second day, collecting just USD 40K. The current total stands USD 1.72 million.
Distributors will be incurring huge losses if the film doesn't pick up during the festival holidays.
