Looks like a very torn up Bush Brown (Mycalesis) Can't ID it with that amount of damage and upperside shot.

The bowed dorsum (lower margin) of the forewing indicates it is a male. (as does the long narrow brushtip abdomen)
2 species in which the male have large clearer ocellus (eyespot) are M. visala & perseoides.
The species in which the eyespot is larger & with a clearer yellow ring is Mycalesis perseoides. This species is also more often shot.
