There is a lot of tension, worry, and even scepticism in the industry because more and more big-budget movies aren’t doing well at the box office. Many people don’t know what’s wrong with these movies. The most recent example was the movie Liger, which cost a lot of money but didn’t do well.
In Hindi, the movie only made Rs 18 crore in its first week in theatres. Vijay Deverakonda has reportedly decided to pay the people who made Liger for not doing well at the box office. News18 says that the lead actor will give Charmee Kaur and other co-producers a cut of his pay. The amount is said to be over Rs 6 crore. Liger, which was directed by Puri Jagannadh and starred Ananya Panday, was Vijay’s first movie in Bollywood. After Liger, Vijay will work with Puri Jagannadh again on the film Jana Gana Mana.
Deverakonda had talked about it before and said that at first, right after “Arjun Reddy,” he didn’t think he was ready for Bollywood. He didn’t think he was prepared to make a movie for the country. To get to this point and take on the job of national cinema, he had to go through his own journey. “Liger” was the first movie where he felt ready as a person, as an actor, and as a writer. The script also felt suitable for the Indian audience.
