Acharya starring megastar Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan’s father-son duo has been one of the most awaited Telugu movies of the year. Surprisingly, ever since the advance booking has started, the film is performing well and the opening day has also been less than expected.
If not earth-shattering, the film opened to a good response 37 crore Coming on day 1. Given the pre-release buzz, many thought it would go up 40 crore Allu Arjun on target by beating Pushpa which made 38.15 crore From its Telugu version. However, it did not happen as negative reviews and audience response hit the box office on day one.
Acharya saw a disastrous drop of over 70% on the second day 8.50 crore* came in, clearly stating the fact that the film is set to become one of the biggest disasters in the Telugu film industry. Now talking about tomorrow i.e. on the third day, then the action has fallen again and has been made. 5.50-6.50 croreto take the total 51-52 crore at the box office.
With such lousy reception and lousy drops, one can only imagine how badly Acharya will be suffering from today.
Meanwhile, as Acharya bombs, Chiranjeevi’s fans are worried about his two upcoming films. Both films are remakes in other languages, (‘Bhola Shankar’ is a remake of a Tamil film ‘Vedalam’ and ‘Godfather’ is an adaptation.lucifer‘ a Malayalam hit film) Megastar fans are not sure how these can happen.
Fans totally disagree with Megastar’s choice, as they don’t want any more flops at the moment.
