Pawan Kalyan's Agnyaathavaasi (Agnathavasi/Agnyathavasi) collected Rs 37.90 crore at the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (AP/T) box office on the first days, but failed to cross Rs 50 crore mark in four days.
The Trivikram directorial was released in over 1,000 screens in the Telugu states and opened to an overwhelming response. It collected Rs 37.90 crore gross at the AP, Telangana box office on the first day while earning Rs 26.36 crore for its distributors.
Agnyaathavaasi received a negative response from the audiences and critics and the trade experts predicted that the word of mouth would take a toll on its collection on the second day. But none of them expected the dip in collections to be so low. The movie witnessed over 80 percent drop on Thursday when compared to its opening day collection.
Andhra Box Office tweeted: "#Agnyaathavaasi send shivers across the Trade. A Disastrous 2nd Day. All hopes on the Festival Days now."
The Trivikram Srinivas-directed movie clashed with Balakrishna's Jai Simha and this resulted in further drop in its collection. Agnyaathavaasi went on to huge down fall on on Friday and Suturday.
Agnyaathavaasi is estimated to have collected over Rs 10.69 crore at the AP/T box office on Thursday, Friday and Saturday together. Its four-day total collection stands at Rs 48.86 crore gross.
After seeing its opening, trade experts had predicted that the movie would surpass Rs 60-crore mark on its second day, but it has struggled and failed to cross even Rs 50 crore gross mark in the next three days.
Agnyaathavaasi is estimated to have earned Rs 33.80 crore crore for its AP, Telangana distributors, who have spent Rs 92.30 crore on its theatrical rights. The movie has recovered 36.61 percent of their investments in three days and it is likely to incure huge losses to them in the coming days.
Here are the area-wise earnings of Agnyaathavaasi. These are estimated numbers, which may not match with actual figures. All the numbers are in crore rupees.
