Liger earned around Rs 33.12 crore, thanks to the advance bookings. However, the film has disappointed everyone. Not only the film critics, but even the die-hard fans of Vijay Deverakonda have rejected the film. Yes, there are going to the theatres but coming out with an unsatisfactory look. The earnings of Liger witnessed a major dip over the first weekend.
