Shocking TRP Rating for Salaar

Salaar recently premiered on Star Maa, a major Telugu television channel. Despite strong promotional efforts, the film’s television viewership ratings (TRP) were surprisingly low, at just 6.52, falling far short of expectations. Fans had anticipated a record-breaking response, making this a significant surprise. Some speculate that the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket season might have contributed to the lower-than-expected viewership.

An Interesting Trend: Box Office vs. Television Performance

Interestingly, a recent trend suggests that movies that didn’t fare well in theaters, like Aadikeshava, are performing well on television, garnering high TRPs. Conversely, major box office successes like Salaar and Waltair Veerayya receive lower viewership numbers on the small screen. For example, Chiranjeevi’s Waltair Veerayya, another major 2023 hit, had a TRP of just 5.14 on its first telecast. Both Salaar and Waltair Veerayya were the top two-grossing Tollywood films of 2023.

Salaar Low TRP Sparks Online Discussion

Salaar’s low TRP has sparked online discussions, with viewers expressing various opinions about the unexpected response. Produced by Hombale Films, the movie features Shruti Haasan and Prithviraj Sukumaran in prominent roles.
