Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan’s film Acharya opened with much fanfare on April 29.

The father-son duo’s craze helped the film open big in the South.  However, the Koratala Siva directorial debuted on a less satisfactory  note.

On its release day, the film managed to earn just Rs 7.99 crore.

Acharya also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Pooja Hegde and Sonu Sood.

However, Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan's craze will definitely help to rake huge numbers on its first weekend.

But seeing the mixed response, the film may see a significant drop in the weekdays.

Meanwhile, Acharya released in over 2,000 theatres worldwide. Bookings for the film began four days ago.
