The collections of Nagarjuna's Telugu film "Bhai" has dropped on the second day owing to negative word of mouth.
According to AndhraBoxOffice (ABO), "Bhai" witnessed a huge drop in collections on the second day as the film failed to impress the audience.
"Bhai" had a massive release worldwide on 25 October. The film was expected to perform well upon its release. But heavy rains affected its collections on the first day.
The Nagarjuna starrer opened to a poor start during the morning shows on the first day. Its collections picked up in the evening shows and the film posted a decent figure on day one, raking in around ₹2.95 crore share in Andhra Pradesh.
Here is the break-up of the film's first day share: ₹1.24 crore in Nizam, ₹45 lakh in Ceded, ₹28 lakh in Vizag, ₹17.5 lakh in East, ₹13.5 lakh in West, ₹18.1 lakh in Krishna, ₹37 lakh in Guntur and ₹12 lakh in Nellore. Its total collection stands at ₹2.95 crore.
However, the film's second-day collections dropped drastically owing to poor public talk. ABO reported that the Nag starrer is estimated to have earned less than one crore on its second day.
"Bhai" has even failed to get a good start in Karnataka (KA). Telugu films have a strong following in the state and they get a good opening upon release. In particular, Bangalore, Kolar and Tumkur (BKT) areas are the major source of revenue for Telugu films in the state. But, "Bhai" has performed poorly in most of the areas, except for Bengaluru where the film posted decent figures.
The action-comedy entertainer has minted approximately ₹20 lakh share in BKT on day one and the film's total first day share from Karnataka is pegged at around ₹25 lakh. The collections are pretty low, considering the fact that the film released in approximately 75 screens.
