Multi-starrer films have become a thing not just in Bollywood but in Tollywood as well. Starting with SS Rajamouli’s directorial RRR, starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan, was a super hit at the box office.
After that, Acharya, starring Chiranjeevi and his son Ram Charan, failed to make an impression on the audience and turned out to be a disaster at the box office. But Acharya is not the first film with big names to have tanked at the box office. While the directors look at multi-starrers at the success mantra, it doesn’t help all the time.
Let’s look at other multi-starrer films that did not do well at the box office!
