World Famous Lover opens to poor collections

Rowdy Vijay Deverakonda’s latest film World Famous Lover released yesterday worldwide, in different languages. It is directed by Kranthi Madhav and has Raashi Khanna, Aishwarya Rajesh, Catherine Tresa and Izabelle Leite as the female leads. WFL did not have much buzz around the film, and even the collections of the movie on the first day have been bad.

Usually, Vijay Deverakonda’s films get good collections among Tier 2 heroes, but WFL failed to do so. In Nizam, WFL managed to collect Rs. 2.02Cr on the first day, which is lesser than Dear Comrade which collected Rs. 2.75Cr. Ismart Shankar collected 3.36Cr, MCA collected Rs. 3.10CR, Shailaja Reddy Alludu collected Rs. 2.50Cr, A…Aa collected Rs. 2.31Cr, Majili collected Rs. 2.11Cr, and Jersey collected Rs. 2.04Cr.

It is clear that WFL suffered because of poor buzz on the film before release, and because of improper marketing. Even Vijay did not look very interested in promoting the film and clearly said that this was his last love story.
