Faking collections is a long tradition in Indian film industry. Bollywood has become more or less professional in this regard, but Tollywood is yet to get a professional box-office tracking system.
Hence, even today producers are resorting to claim tall figures. Sadly, even films that are running successfully are resorting to false data.
The makers of “Bharat Ane Nenu” are coming up with posters of false collections and records. The film didn’t break any records. It is just a biggest hit in Mahesh Babu’s career.
However, producer Danayya claims he is telling true records. Sadly, even a news channel ran an half hour programme that “Bharat Ane Nenu” is all set to become the third highest grossing movie after “Baahubali” movies.
Truth is “Bharat Ane Nenu” will not even cross the total worldwide collections of “Khaidi No 150” and “Rangasthalam”.
Even in USA, Mahesh Babu’s movie is struggling to go past the collections of “Rangasthalam”.
Following the trend of Mahesh Babu’s movie, even the makers of Allu Arjun’s “Naa Peru Surya” have started putting up posters with false collections. They claimed that the film grossed Rs 40 cr on the first day and Rs 63 cr in two days.
“Rangasthalam” was a genuine blockbuster and it is still drawing good crowds, but the movie has not touched Rs 200 cr worldwide. But the makers had released the Rs 200 cr poster last week itself.
Faking collections has become a habit for producers and certain media.
