The Ghost Box Office AP-TG
Previously, the Ghost was expected to collect around Rs 8 crore from the two Telugu states on its first day, but to the surprise of trade pundits, the film got off to a terrible start at the box office.
It collected Rs 4.60 Cr gross globally on day 1 with 2.45 crores in shares. Of which 3.60 Cr crude (2 Cr shares) came from AP-TG. The film could not perform well at the box office overseas as well, it only grossed 50-55 lakhs from there.
Box Office Collection Day 2
From trading reports, The Ghost sees a drop on day 2 due to the working day, it collects 1.75 crores gross on Thursday to take its worldwide total to Rs 6.30 crores + gross.
Speaking of The Ghost’s box office, it needs a strong hold over the next few days of its long weekend. The good thing is that it only needs to pick up 18.64 crore in distributor shares to emerge as a hit that is possible to finish if it stays flat over the weekend after the weekday strong.

Clash with Godfather affected his BOC
The Ghost faced fierce competition with Godfather Chiranjeevi, who opened with double digit numbers in AP-TG. Godfather was released in 700 theaters in the Telugu States while Nagarjuna’s standout could only occupy 400 theaters. The Chiranjeevi star has become the top choice of moviegoers on the occasion of Dussehra. The activity of this last film should increase on Saturday and Sunday.
On the other hand, The Ghost seems to have struggled in front of Godfather as he failed to create the hype surrounding him like Godfather created him. The latter rolls on Positive WOM while Nagarjuna failed to do so.
