Big stars, famous directors, and big budgets cannot guarantee a film’s success – this harsh truth often makes itself loud and clear. This year, several highly anticipated pan-India films featuring the stars of the South film industry either bombed or met with modest success at the box office.
Let’s take a look at some of the movies that didn’t do well at the box office:
Even Chiranjeevi, perhaps the biggest name in the South, could not guarantee a good start for Acharya. The film, directed by Kortala Siva and starring Chiranjeevi and his son Ram Charan in an extended cameo, was released on 29 April to a warm box office response.

Due to negative reviews, the film’s box office collection dropped significantly in the first four days. Made on a whopping budget of Rs 140 crore, the film earned Rs 63.5 crore worldwide in its first weekend.
Another major disaster of the year was Raadi Shyam, starring Prabhas of Baahubali fame. The multilingual, romantic period drama fell short of high expectations. The highly anticipated film, which was made on a budget of Rs 350 crore, grossed Rs 144 crore worldwide, from all languages, at the end of its theatrical run.
Leaguer, starring Vijay Devarakonda and Ananya Pandey in the lead, also met the same fate at the box office. The film, which was directed by Puri Jagannadh, was a big disappointment for the audience.
