As of Tuesday evening, Mahesh starrer had collected Rs 11.8 Cr gross with 49% occupancy for over 3200 shows, as per the reports the film had collected a massive record booking at the Hyderbad box office, for a total over Rs 7 crores.
Though it couldn’t manage to surpass the RRR’s (Rs 10.5 crores), with the collections for the opening day of Rs 7 crores, the film managed to fetch itself the second spot, followed by a recent release Bheemla Nayak (Rs 6.17 Cr), Radhe Shyam (Rs 6.16 Cr).
Another good news is the ticket prices have been hiked for one week in the Nizam area by the AP government. Single screens and multiplexes tickets will be sold with Rs 50 increase rates in Nizam for a week.
We expect that Mahesh Babu starrer becomes a major success, and its success becomes more significant as the Telugu industry has already suffered major losses in the name of Acharya and Radhe Shyam. So, we hope that Mahesh’s film brings a smile to the face of the distributors and the exhibitors down south.
