Before releasing Tamil movie “Puli” earned many expectations. Kollywood superstar Vijay, Sri Devi, Sudeep, Shruthi Hassan and Hansi were the lead characters in this film. This film was expected of breaking all the records especially “Baahubali” post release. Though it didn’t collect a positive response from the audience due to lack of story in the film, it managed to collect some good money near the box-office.
Without caring all the negative talk clouded over “Puli,” producers announced the first week collections of the film. They announced that “Puli” has collected around Rs 71Crores. Many who listened to this doubted that whether these collections are fake or real. Whatever be the collections, but from the producers point of view, they already incurred a huge loss on Rs 30Crores, since the film was made with a budget of Rs 105crores.
The producers claimed that they traded this film for 105Croroes in all dubbed languages. With the collections of 70crores for the first week, they reminded that the share was only 50Crores. If the film does the same and goes into the second week, it collects nothing more than 20crores. With these numbers on the charts, “Puli” will defiantly incur a huge loss of Rs 30Cr.
While speaking of Telugu Version, Puli was sold for Rs7Cr. The cine pundits have already confirmed that this film has already incurred a 2cr loss.
The film that was expected of beating “Baahubali,” at least in South, couldn’t even collect half of what “Baahubali” has collected. Rajamouli directorial “Baahubali” collected Rs 255cr in seven days.
