Incredibly, there is massive confusion surrounding the actual box office collections of Chandramukhi 2, the highly anticipated sequel to Rajinikanth’s 2005 blockbuster Chandramukhi. Reportedly, the makers have claimed huge earnings while industry trackers state otherwise. Shockingly, this has left fans perplexed over the film’s real commercial fate.
Surprisingly, Chandramukhi 2 released 17 years after the original, starring Raghava Lawrence and Kangana Ranaut. Alarmingly, it received terrible reviews as critics felt it recycled the iconic first film. Disappointingly, this resulted in a disastrous opening weekend, as per early estimates.
Specifically, the film collected Rs. 7.5 crores on its opening day, followed by Rs. 4.5 crores on day two. Worryingly, business dropped sharply soon after due to awful word-of-mouth. Apparently, fans slammed the movie for lacking originality and merely mimicking the first part.
However, confusingly, lead actress Kangana Ranaut asserted that the film has earned Est Rs. 40 crores already in three days. Shockingly, this brazen claim comes despite producer Lyca Productions staying silent on official figures. Bizarrely, Ranaut has stood by the inflated number, even as trade analysts rubbish it.
In reality, as per credible box office trackers, the film has earned just Rs. 32.95 crores net in its first week. Alarmingly, the actual collections seem to be around 75% lower than what the film’s team has projected. Clearly, their tactics to cover up the film’s failure have backfired.
Expectedly, fans have lambasted the producers and cast online for spreading fake news about the box office performance. Understandably, they feel cheated and want clarity on the real numbers. Disappointingly, the makers continue to dodge questions and withhold official data.
Worryingly, this murky scenario has caused mistrust among the public and damaged the film’s credibility further. Hopefully, the producers will come clean soon and reveal Chandramukhi 2’s genuine box office figures. Until then, the mystery over its commercial fate will continue to confound fans and industry watchers alike.
